Multi-Camera Vision Controller M180 GigE

Accurate control and open architecture

M180 GigE is an industrial PC dedicated to Machine Vision applications. Entirely “in-house”: designed, developed and manufactured by Tattile, the M180 gives to the customers a wide range of applications according to specifications and it can be employed in many industrial sectors.

The M180 features 6 independent GigE ports, each one with its own direct connection to the CPU, and all Power over Ethernet (PoE), so the cameras can be powered directly through the Ethernet cable connection without the need to add extra power cables.

The M180 GigE features a 6th generation Intel processors i7 and installs Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7) or Windows 10 operating systems.
The open architecture allows the user to decide whether to develop the vision application using Tattile’s software platform or other manufacturers’ software/ libraries or to use a previously developed program.

Camera sync can be implemented using the 6 high-speed triggeroutputs or via the  Precision  Time  Protocol  (PTP)  IEEE1588.  One additional Gigabit Ethernet port is dedicated to the LAN connection.

The isolated high-speed digital I/O (8 in / 14 out) allows the perfect low-latency synchronization between vision system, cameras and machine automation.

Thanks to the FPGA technology, implementing real-time logics is incredibly easy.

It is 24 VDC powered and it is a fanless system, therefore with minor problems of maintenance.

The completely “in-house” development guarantees the life of the product up to at least ten years: Tattile’s architecture longevity translates for the OEM into a safe replicability of its machines.

The system provides a default SSD hard drives up to 256 GB of capacity and allows you to install two extra dedicated hard disks, for example: to the images storage, data, back-up, log files. It also allows “customization” and provides one PCI Express 8x free slot, so the customer can install a third-party card to expand the functionality of the system.

It features two standard USB ports, an internal USB port and two Display Port video outputs.
The intelligent diagnostic service enables to verify the functioning of all devices and hardware; this would not be possible on common industrial PC, where the hardware components are installed at a later stage.
