“neurons” and “blood vessels” of automation in machine vision
- Aug 08, 2023 -
“neurons” and “blood vessels” of automation in machine vision are the Vision cables. They provide precise visual guidance for production tasks. In the modern industrial manufacturing process, industrial cameras are the “eyes” of robots and other automated machines. The cameras provide precise visual guidance for production tasks. Vision cables are the “neurons” and “blood vessels” for vision systems. High-quality vision cables could transmit the signals and supply power with high performance and reliability. Without them, the entire system would be greatly reduced.
Industrial cameras are essential for the operation of industrial robots. In order to ensure the robots can accurately perceive the environment and complete tasks efficiently, they rely on high-quality vision cables to transmit the visual signals from the cameras.
Why is machine vision cable so important?To make high-quality vision cables, they must have a perfect cable structure. That’s to say, including an outer jacket, braid shield layer, filler, drain, mylar, foamed, insulation layer, oxygen-free copper wires, etc. We should twist the copper wires for differential signal and etc. What makes vision cables so important? It is their ability to provide a reliable and stable connection between the camera and the control system. Vision cables are designed to perform in harsh industrial environments. Such as EMC, high temperature, high humidity, UV, etc. Besides, they protect the signal from interference and other external factors that can degrade signal quality. In addition, vision cables must withstand a variety of mechanical stresses, such as bending, torsion, and vibration, without losing signal clarity or causing damage to the cable. This requires the use of high-quality materials and precise manufacturing processes to ensure that the cable can provide a stable, durable connection even in demanding conditions. We could make high-flexible cables for almost all cables. The high-flexible means that we could use it for drag-chain, towline, and robotic.
Machine vision cable classification.We could classify the vision cables into vision signal cables, IO trigger cables, and power supply cables according to their functions. Besides, we could also classify the vision cables into camera link cables, GigE cables, USB vision cables, IEEE 1394 firewire cables, circular plug cables(Hirose, Lemo, M12 and etc), D-sub cables, IDC cables by their transmission protocol and interface. Each vision cable should mate with their application scenario. For example, consider the camera interface, industrial PC interface, transmission distance, transmission bandwidth, or even if used outdoors (UV, waterproof and etc). Totally, vision cables are a vital component of modern industrial automation and machine vision systems. They are the “neurons” and “blood vessels” of automation in the machine vision system. Without high-quality vision cables, we couldn’t ensure the reliability and performance of these systems. That will also impact both production efficiency and product quality. Therefore, it is essential to invest in high-quality vision cables to ensure the optimal performance of your automated manufacturing system.
