The same attributes of Opteon imaging systems that make them both accurate and rapidly deployable also makes machine vision system built on them much more reliable. Most failures in modern solid state systems involve failed connections, timing errors between disparate hardware, or poorly designed software.
Opteon systems use 4x - 9x fewer electrical connections, which greatly increases service life and system uptime. They also are self-monitoring and will report when any particular conductor of those few required cables are shorted, open, or merely no longer meet their impedance and frequency requirements for reliable operation. They will even report when and where in a system an expected signal was not received on schedule which can be indispensable when debugging the operation of asynchronous machinery.
By eliminating the gaps between cameras, computers, lights, cameras, sensors, and controls in conventional systems, Opteon components allow you to control and monitor all aspects of your system.
