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.
