Videolab vision4rail –
a complete image processing system for mounting rails

The new mounting rail image processing computer, the „Videolab vision4rail“ from ASENTICS, is a full-fledged image processing system for direct integration into a switch cabinet. Vision4rail perfectly closes the gap both with its performance and with regard to price between intelligent cameras and industrial PC’s, fitting seamlessly into the ASENTICS family of products. Vision4rail unifies all aspects of a modern image processing system in a compact and industry compatible aluminium housing. The software and user interface are identical with the ASENTICS Videolab G7 generation. That lets Vision4rail guarantee a high degree of flexibility, making it ideally suited to future requirements, too.

Simple integration into a switch cabinet

The compact design, the simple and flexible installation on a mounting rail and the plug-in screw contacts let the system be easily integrated into a switch cabinet. Lockable plug connectors for the two digital cameras reliably prevent the connections from coming loose and provide additional signals for power supplying and controlling light sources. The digital inputs and outputs are opto-decoupled and equipped with indicator lights. On top of that, the system provides plug connectors for two USB 2.0 and one serial interface, Ethernet, VGA plus mouse and keyboard. The externally accessible slot for CompactFlash modules can be used for data transmission, data backup or even to accept the entire operating software, facilitating operation without a hard drive.
