The eBOX671-521-FL Embedded Systems for Machine Vision

Machine vision can be the key contributing factor for successful machine-to-machine (M2M) communications,
quality control applications, and machine and deep learning. embedded systems For quality control, it supports
detection of measurements, an inspection of parts, guidance of assembly robots, and correct ID reading, all of
which can be done in real-time. Machine vision can also enhance the machine learning process by delivering the
collections of visual data and facilitating (M2M) communications.

An embedded system for machine vision

The machine vision-based embedded systems address critical industrial IoT needs, including monitoring of
various conditions during the production process. For example, machine vision is used to detect defects and
anomalies during the production process in a factory environment. The results are better product quality, contras well as productivity improvements. It is also used for predictive maintenance and helps facilitate the machine
learning process.

ECC memory is supported by an optional Intel® C246 chipset to harness the latest graphics technologies.
More importantly, this robust embedded computer plays a critical role in facilitating high-speed image
acquisition and processing. The platform is also crucial in machine vision embedded systems managing robots
due to safety concerns and the risk of collision with humans.
Axiomtek’s eBOX671-521-FL is scalable. It offers choices of 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 and Celeron®
processors that provide ample capacity for transmitting multiple and simultaneous data collection streams.
The processors offer a rich visual experience with the latest 4K Ultra HD graphics improvements.
The machine learning designs also mandate reliable high-speed connectivity with sensors and on-premise
servers or cloud computers. Here, PoE connectivity offers a highly suitable solution to connecting sensors and
cameras and communicating acquired data without finding additional sources of power and complicating the
implementation of sensors/actuators to the edge server and machine-to-machine or machine-to-server
connectivity and communications. PoE connectivity significantly lowers the networking cost by consolidating
the backup power and reduces the integration complexity by transporting both data and power on a single
Ethernet cable.
The eBOX671-521-FL offers four- or eight-channel gigabit PoE onboard. The PoE ports are critical in supplying
power to facilitate continuous camera connections in machine vision applications such as automated optical
inspection (AOI). PoE switches can add additional power sources for applications that require more cameras.
The eBOX671-521-FL, a robust edge micro server for digital twin
technology
A high-performance embedded system is required to make the digital twin concept a reality. High processing
power, ample system memory, and hard drive space, flexible I/O interfaces, and great connectivity options are
some of the examples of why a reliable and feature-rich edge microserver is the key to successful
deployment of the digital twin technology. To simulate manufacturing assets, processes, people, and physical
objects in real-time; choices of CPUs; its capabilities; connectivity and communications interfaces between
sensor-to-sensor and sensor-to-edge processors, as well as protocol compatibility, are critical factors driven by
the hardware choice.

Gateway device for IoT applications embedded systems

Axiomtek also offers embedded IoT gateway platforms like ICO300-MI targeted at industrial applications such as smart factory automation, smart energy, facility monitoring systems, and more. The ICO300-MI is based on Intel® Gateway Technology and has been upgraded with Wind River Intelligent Device Platform XT v3.1. It provides enterprise-grade security and intelligent manageability features for industrial automation designs. But more importantly, it simplifies the development process with an application-ready IoT gateway platform.

The IoT gateway platform features a low-power Intel® Atom™ processor,
wireless connectivity, rich expansions, and ultra-light-weight and compact design. The abundant processing
and memory capacity at lower power consumption allows ICO300-MI to efficiently transfer the captured data
from the physical world to the virtual world in the digital twin, AI, and machine vision applications.

Many new trends in manufacturing and factory automation may rely upon software to make them happen.
However, they cannot become reality without the right hardware selection. The embedded systems like
eBOX671-521-FL and ICO300-MI have been developed from the ground up to cater to design requirements
for applications such as those mentioned for smart manufacturing, IoT edge-processing and industrial IoT
analytics. They facilitate ample computing power for AI offshoots such as machine learning and newcomers
like digital twins as well as ensure dependable and secured connectivity and communications from edge to
cloud/on-site server
