Mini PC operates IR cameras

Mini PC operates IR cameras

Showcased at Southern Manufacturing this year,  the Optris PI NetBox is a mini PC that can operated all infrared (IR) cameras in the PI series. It operates as a standalone system or as a cable extension via GigE. In addition, the mini PC, along with the IR camera, can be integrated with the company’s CoolingJacket Advanced for high-temperature applications.

The PI NetBox can now be used with all PI series models, from the PI 160 infrared camera (160 x 120px) at up to 125Hz to the PI 640 VGA camera (640 x 480px) at up to 1kHz. The standalone system has the major advantage that individual user software can be used alongside the camera software. Set-up and configuration is quick and easy via NetBox Utility and the ControlCenter which is installed on the NetBox ex works. The internal watchdog function guarantees failsafe – and therefore cost-effective – operation, says the company. The computer has a robust, aluminum casing and measures 113 x 57 x 47mm.

The PC is equipped with the Windows 7 Professional OS and includes a COM Express mini embedded board and an Intel Quad Core processor running at 1.91GHz, and 2Gbyte RAM. The 16Gbyte solid state hard drive can be expanded with Micro SHDC or SDXC cards. Three USB ports allow for the connection of keyboards, mice and other processing modules. Voltage supply is 8 to 48V DC or via PoE.
