Introduction
BOA Pro Vision System Overview
BOA vision system is the hardware platform. Sherlock Embedded is the powerful and
flexible professional machine vision software. Together they are the BOA Pro.
BOA Pro is a fully integrated vision system in a compact “smart” camera format that has
been specifically designed for industrial use. Packaged complete with application
software embedded, BOA Pro provides power and flexibility for automated inspection
for the factory floor.
BOA Pro vision systems are configured and monitored remotely using an Ethernet
connection to a PC or factory network. An inspection can be quickly setup using the
Sherlock Embedded Client Software application to access the programming interface.
The software interface is fully equipped with a suite of image processing tools and
capabilities that satisfy a range of needs.
BOA vision systems are small, rugged devices that can be easily integrated into existing
production lines, machinery or moving equipment. They are supported by standard
industrial M12 cordsets to further simplify and reduce implementation costs. Rated for
IP67 deployment when fitted with a compatible lens cover, BOA systems can be
mounted in wash down factory environments without the need for additional protective
enclosures.

Cable Configurations
The BOA vision system offers flexible cabling options to suit a number of application
configurations:
1.
For single cable applications, the Ethernet cable can be used to supply power
(referred to as “Passive Power over Ethernet”) and communications between the
camera and the control environment. Power is supplied by connecting a DC voltage
source between 12-30V to conductors 4 (pwr) and 8 (gnd) on the Ethernet RJ45
connector. Note: The PL-100 module does this automatically. In this configuration,
the camera I/O is unavailable.
2.
For single cable applications that do not require a runtime Ethernet connection, the
I/O-PWR cable provides limited communications and power between the camera
and the control environment. Note: Ethernet is still required for setup.
3.
For typical applications, both the Ethernet and I/O-PWR cables are connected to
provide flexibility between the camera and the control environment. In this
configuration, either or both cables can supply power provided they come from the
same power source. Do not connect different power sources to the BOA camera
connectors.
4.
In all configurations, the Lamp cable can be connected between the camera and a
compatible LED light source. The BOA vision system supplies power and strobe
control to the external light. Power is routed from camera power input to the lamp.
BEWARE: Connecting a voltage on pin 1 of the lamp connector that is lower than the
input power voltage to BOA could result in damage to the camera!
Panel Link Module (A-BVS-PL-100)
The PL-100 module is an optional module that provides a safe and convenient way to
interface BOA. It provides an isolation layer between the factory and the camera
(differential isolation), as well as supplying power via the Ethernet cable for single cable
applications. The PL-100 also provides a manual trigger button and status lights for
application debug.
A-BVS-PL-100
NOTE: The BOA vision system does not support the IEEE 802.3af standard Power over
Ethernet (PoE) and should not be directly connected to a PoE supported router.

Software Interface
Getting Started
The BOA vision system is supplied with the Sherlock Embedded application embedded.
This application offers an advanced suite of vision processing capabilities to satisfy a
diverse range of automated inspection needs. The application interface is accessed
through the Ethernet connection using a PC with the Sherlock Embedded Client
software application.
• You do not need to install software on a PC to monitor the BOA Pro system.
• You do need to install the Sherlock Embedded Client Software to program and
configure the BOA Pro system.
Take note of the following before attempting to access the application:
BOA vision systems are preconfigured with a default static IP address of 192.168.0.100.
Most applications will require changing this address to be compatible with a local
machine network. There are two ways to change the BOA address: using the iDiscover
utility, which is installed with the Sherlock Embedded Client software, or using an
Internet Browser (no software installation needed).
Change the Address Using the iDiscover Utility
The iDiscover utility is provided for discovering BOA cameras connected to the local PC
network. iDiscover is installed on the Client PC with the Sherlock Embedded Client
Software. The iDiscover program can also be run from the CD-ROM, in the Utilities
directory:
1. Insert the BOA Pro CD into your PC’s drive. The installation utility should start
automatically. (On Windows 7 you may be asked if you wish to run the setup.exe
utility or open windows explorer.)
2. Click “Install Software” to begin the installation. The Sherlock Embedded Client
software will be the default selection. You will be asked to confirm the destination
directory.
After the Client software is installed, iDiscover can be launched in one of two ways:
a)
Open the command prompt (“Start -> Run”), use the “Browse” button to navigate
to: “Program Files/Teledyne DALSA/Sherlock Embedded/Utilities/iDiscover.exe”
and click “OK” in the Run dialog.
b)
Use Windows Explorer to navigate to:
“Program Files/Teledyne DALSA/Sherlock Embedded/Utilities” and double-click on
“iDiscover.exe”.
Version 02
teledynedalsa.com/ipd
13
iDiscover Utility
Once launched the GUI below will be shown. The left panel shows the MAC addresses
of all reachable and non-reachable BOA cameras. If a camera icon is blue, the address
is compatible. If the camera icon is red, the address is not compatible. Click on one of
these to populate the associated network configuration on the right. You can then
modify the BOA IP address, and click “Apply”.
You cannot use this GUI to connect to BOA Pro cameras running the Sherlock
Embedded software.
In most cases you will need administrator privileges on your PC to access BOA. It may
be necessary to customize the security settings on your browser.
NOTE: See the document “Configuring Windows for BOA” on the BOA Pro CD-ROM.
Version 02
teledynedalsa.com/ipd

Software Interface
Change the Address Using a Web Browser
The BOA static IP address can be changed through the Sherlock Embedded Web
Server interface to match your Local Area Network. BOA is compatible with host
computers running the Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. The
following browsers have been tested: Microsoft Internet Explorer version 8, Mozilla
Firefox 5.0.1, Google Chrome 13.0.782.220.
1.
The PC used to access BOA initially will need to be configured on the same
network neighborhood, but with a different address (i.e. 192.168.0.101). Consult
your system administrator for instructions on how to do this. The subnet mask
should be set automatically to 255.255.255.0. NOTE: Write down or capture the
PCs original network address settings before making any changes.
2.
Launch your web browser, and type the BOA Pro address in the address bar. The
factory default address is: 129.168.0.100.
3.
Hover on “Device” and select “Network Setup” to change the network address or
name. BOA supports both DHCP and Static IP addressing. Static is usually
preferred since the address does not change.
NOTE: A power cycle is required before the new address or name will take effect.
4.
Close your web browser. Change the network settings back the their previous
settings. Usually you do not need to reboot a PC after changing the network
addressing.
If you incorrectly set, or forgot, the new address of your BOA Pro, you can run the
“iDiscover” utility. This utility is installed automatically when you install the Sherlock
Embedded Client software on a PC.
In most cases you will need administrator privileges on your PC to access BOA. It may
be necessary to customize the security settings on your browser.
NOTE: See the document “Configuring Windows for BOA” on the BOA Pro CD-ROM.

Sherlock Embedded Web Server
The Sherlock Embedded Web Server is a portal through which the BOA Pro vision
system can be Monitored when running or inspecting. This interface is also used for
upgrading the BOA Pro firmware. The web server is accessed from a host PC using a
Web Browser. The following browsers have been tested: Microsoft Internet Explorer
version 8, Mozilla Firefox 5.0.1, Google Chrome 13.0.782.220.
1.
Open the web browser on an address compatible PC connected to the camera
2.
Enter the URL address of the camera in the address bar and press Return.
3.
The camera web server interface will be displayed in the browser as follows:
4.
The web server provides a quick snapshot of the state of the camera and provides
controls for Monitoring a running inspection, IP address setup, firmware
upgrading, and a command console. The web server can be password protected
to prevent unauthorized access. The Monitor page can be accessed without a
password.
5.
The web server interface is not password protected in the factory configuration,
and is always logged in by default. If you click on “logout” only the “Run Monitor”
and “Device info” pages are available when not logged in. If you have not added a
password, click “login” to access the other pages.
6.
Click on “Device” then select “Change password” to add password protection to
the web server interface. NOTE: This is separate from the password protection on
the Client Software interface. Remember the password! This cannot be reset.
Version 02
teledynedalsa.com/ipd
16
When the application is set up and stored on the camera, the Ethernet connection can
be disconnected and the inspection will run autonomously (if power is supplied on the
IO connector).
The camera can easily store over 50 inspection programs in its flash storage memory.
These programs can be switched through network commands, or through established
PLC register connections or through the iNspect application interface.
The camera administrator can setup user accounts with various levels of access
privilege. With password control enabled, the web server will prompt users for a valid
login and the application will only expose controls associated with that account.
Firmware Upgrading
Note: Export your saved inspection program files before upgrading the firmware.
BOA firmware may need to be updated occasionally to add new features or fix reported
problems. To do this, click on “Firmware” then select “Update Firmware”. To upgrade,
simply browse to the location of the upgrade binary file “update.pak” (obtain from your
Teledyne DALSA representative) on the connected PC and click the upgrade button.
After a firmware upgrade, it is recommended that the programming PC be upgraded to
a version of the Client software that matches the new firmware version. The new Client
software should be obtained at the same time as the firmware update file. The two
software packages are build together, and should have the same date and time.
Uninstall the current version of the Sherlock Embedded Client, using the Windows “Add
and Remove Programs”. Reboot the PC, and install the newer version that matches the
firmware you just installed.
Version 02
teledynedalsa.com/ipd

Sherlock Embedded Client
The Sherlock Embedded Client Software is used to program and configure the
inspection and peripheral communications. The Sherlock Embedded Client software is
available on the CD that ships with the camera and is very easy to install.
1. Insert the BOA Pro CD into your PC’s drive. The installation utility should start
automatically. (On Windows 7 you will be asked if you wish to run the setup.exe
utility or open windows explorer.)
2. Click “Install Software” to begin the installation. The Sherlock Embedded Client
software will be the default selection. Click “Start Install”. You will be asked to
confirm the destination directory.
If security settings prevent the CD from running the install utility, you can navigate to the
“SherlockEmbeddedClient” directory. In Windows 7, right-click on “SherlockBOA.exe”
and click on “Run as Administrator”. In Windows XP, double-click on
“SherlockBOA.exe”.
A Software Manual, Tutorial, and other documents are included on the BOA Pro CD.
The Sherlock Embedded Tutorial gives a very easy-to-follow tour through the Client
software interface and many programming features. It is highly recommended that
you read and follow the Sherlock Embedded Tutorial to gain familiarity with the
programming interface for the Sherlock Embedded software. Many features of the
interface are introduced and explained in this document. Several explanations and tips
are included.
The on-line Help “How To” section covers some more advanced topics and solutions.
Some topics include step by step instructions, and some are in more general terms.
NOTE: The Sherlock Embedded Client interface can be password protected to prevent
others from opening the Client interface. This is separate and different from the
password protection on the web server interface. Do not forget the password! This
cannot be reset.
Sherlock Embedded Emulator
The Emulator software is installed automatically with the Sherlock Embedded Client
software. The Emulator provides a way to demonstrate the Sherlock Embedded
software capabilities, or experiment off-line with a sequence of images.
You may not use the Sherlock Embedded Emulator software in a production
environment.

The active polarity of each output is configured in the Sherlock Embedded Client
application.
To connect with an NPN input source, connect the camera output (pin 4 or 6) to the
NPN source input and the camera common output (pin 8) to GND. When the camera
output turns ON, the opto switch closes and OUTX = 0 (current flows through load)
To connect with an PNP input source, connect the camera output (pin 4 or 6) to the
PNP source input and the camera common output (pin 8) to PWR. When the camera
output turns ON, the opto switch closes and OUTX = output common.

Output Control with Sherlock Embedded
The Sherlock Embedded application provides programmable options for controlling the
outputs on BOA. The timing and polarity of the outputs is controlled in Digital IO
Instructions. Each individual output can be controlled by an instruction in the Program
Window (as detailed in the Sherlock Embedded Tutorial). The following instructions are
available:
set_io – Sherlock Embedded sets an output in a steady state.
pulse_dig_io – Sherlock Embedded sends the pulse command to the hardware, and
waits for the pulse to complete. This makes the program execution wait at least the
pulse duration time before going to the next statement.
async_pulse_dig_io – Sherlock Embedded sends the pulse command, and
continues to the next statement without waiting. The pulse begins almost
immediately, with minimum wait time.
schedule_async_pulse_dig_io – Sherlock Embedded sends the pulse command
with a delay count, and continues to the next statement without waiting. The pulse
delay count begins almost immediately, and the pulse begins at the end of the delay
count.

Panel Link Specifications
The PL-100 module offers additional isolation for the BOA camera and simplifies wiring
at the control panel. The module also provides power over Ethernet for single cable
applications.
I/O connections to the BOA camera should be wired to the TOP connectors on the PL100 (J2 and J3) directly. NOTE: Avoid reversing PWR/GND on the I/O connector. Doing
so may make the PoE feature unusable. In this case power must always be supplied
through the IO cable.
I/O connections in the control panel (outside word) should be wired to the BOTTOM
connectors on the PL-100 (J5 and J6). Specification for these signals are as follows:

Serial Port Connection
The RS-232 serial port is accessible through the Lamp connector. By default, the serial
port settings are set as follows:
Port definition

Flow Control
None
These port settings can be changed through the GUI by configuring the “Serial Port
Properties” in the Sherlock Embedded Client application. Refer to the online Help for
details.
RS-232 Hardware Configuration
Electrically, three (3) signals are required to make a serial port connection between
BOA and another device as shown below. RS232 is a “point-to-point” connection, so the
Receive and Transmit lines must be crossed in the cable.
