Machine Vision is becoming much more critical in automation applications, especially where robotics is involved. GigE Vision is a global standard communication protocol that has been adopted by machine vision camera manufacturers. While GigE Vision allows for faster image transfers using standard cabling, the bandwidth requirements are significantly greater than previous generations of machine vision cameras. In addition, in order to simplify wiring, many GigE Vision cameras will use PoE for power so only one cable needs to be run. Aggregating multiple GigE Vision cameras into one link into the Industrial PC (IPC) will often require a 10G link from the PoE switch to the IPC running the software.


  • Industrial factory environment with harsh conditions.
  • High-bandwidth connectivity is essential to move data from the machine vision cameras to the processor.
  • PoE power provided by the industrial switch to power the high-speed cameras. A special low voltage industrial PoE switch must be used.
  • Harsh environment industrial grade networking devices
  • Gigabit fiber
  • 12-24V DC input power
