The EASY (Embedded Application System) is a PC-compatible, industrial computer and machine vision implementation platform.
It runs Microsoft Windows XP, Windows XP Embedded, or Linux and comes in configurations from lean Celeron-powered units to Core Duo-based versions. RAM is available from 0.5 to 2 GB, Flash Disk from 0 to 8 GB, and rotating media from 40 to 80 GB. It also includes a DVI or VGA video display, 4 to 8 USB 2.0 ports, an optional 6 port GigE switch with intelligent Power Over Ethernet (POE) on all channels, and an optional PLC with 16 opto-isolated, bi-directional, programmable digital I/O pin points. Its embedded NxN DMA engine handles all incoming images.
It functions as the host PC for VEA software equipped Data Matrix decoding and OCR applications that support multiple USB camera-based read stations, as well as the centralized processor in automatic identification architectures composed of networked cameras.
