The VisionBox Serval+ can act as a vision computer and as an additional automation computer, too. The Real Time Communication Controller (RTCC) controls all interfaces like I/O, Trigger, Encoder, Fieldbus or LED illumination. With the function Trigger over Ethernet it is possible to have only one cable to the camera (power, data, trigger). With the integration of fieldbus functionality the VisionBox can be integrated as a slave into any Real Time Ethernet network. The Serval+ has been invented for series machine builder.
