IPD VA2X / VA3X Dual Camera Vision Appliance Overview The VA2X and VA3X Vision Appliances provide end users and system integrators with practical machine vision solutions for single or dual camera applications. These low-power DIN mountable systems have been specifically designed to minimize integration and speed deployment by providing easily accessible control and intuitive software setup. Unlike their traditional smart camera counterparts, the VA2X and VA3X incorporate the “smarts” inside the camera controller, as opposed to the camera head. This has the dual benefit of easier integration, since it can be positioned in a chassis alongside other automation controllers, and smaller camera size, thus making it suitable for tight-fit applications. In addition, the built-in dual camera capability provides a cost-effective solution in multi-camera applications. Interfacing the VA2X and VA3X is a snap. The units are fully equipped with industrial grade Inputs and Outputs that are wired using removable screw terminal connectors. Visible LED lights are coupled to each connection that reflects the active state of each signal. The I/O, together with all external interfaces, is conveniently accessible on the front of the unit facing the user. Application setup software is preinstalled and ready to run, thus eliminating installation and revision control problems. The VA2X and VA3X offer two distinct software interfaces, called iNspect and Sherlock. iNspect provides application versatility and ease-of-use, allowing you to setup and deploy a vision solution in a matter of minutes. For more complex tasks, Sherlock provides even greater flexibility and control, giving you the tools and capabilities at your fingertips to apply to almost any application. Less integration, quick software setup, multiple cameras…..with the VA2X or VA3X Vision Appliance, integrating machine vision just got a whole lot easier! P R O D U C T D ATA S H E E T Key Features: Compact DIN mountable system Single or dual camera inspections Suitable for tight-fit camera applications No software to install Powerful embedded processors ensure fast inspection times Online or offline inspection Quick connect/disconnect wiring Easily integrates into factory environments Universal solution for end-users, integrators and machine builders The VA2X and VA3X are available in two versions. The VAX0 version requires an external PC/Laptop connection with Microsoft web browser for remote setup. The VAX1 version contains additional hardware that allows users to setup and run applications locally. The Sherlock software application is only supported on the VAX1 platforms.
