DEVA Electronic Controls Ltd (Birkenhead), UK based manufacturer of integrated solutions for the CMM and machine automation industry, now offer a fully integrated solution to allow any machine designer to obtain time and motion critical video and still images through a simple programmable interface.

The kit offers a single interface that can be used with manual and CNC high-resolution non-contact inspection machines to provide programmable vision and lighting technology along with high precision position measurement and motion control.

No more need to work with multiple interfaces or to integrate system components that do not match each other. Shortens design time, system development and integration time.

The complete hardware system Includes:
High resolution, low frame rate colour USB camera module Deva 028
Lighting controller and 64 LED USB Light ring Deva 022
4 axis high speed, closed loop CMM controller offering high precision position measurement and motion

All components are integrated through software drivers that are supplied with the kit. Full support is provided through online, telephone and email support. DEVA also offer system integration support.

About the individual modules:
Deva 028 USB 3m Pixel Colour Camera Module
Making use of high speed USB 2.0 to transfer image data to a PC host system, the Deva 028 is based on 3M pixel CMOS sensor with bayer mosaic for colour reproduction. Features include cropping, panning, skipping and binning modes, which allow control of image resolution to further increase image capture times and frame rates. Gain priority, shutter priority and combined gain/shutter exposure modes automatically adjust for changing light conditions and multiple, independently configurable image capture streams operate simultaneously across one or more cameras.

Deva 022 USB Lighting Controller
Individual control of LED intensity via the PC instantly directs light onto the subject from any angle ensuring that key features and edges are enhanced allowing for faster and more accurate measurements. Powered by a single USB connection, this plug ‘n’ play device makes installations straight forward and is supplied with drivers compatible with Windows 98, 2000, XP, Vista 32 and ME.

Deva 004 CMM Controller
Contains a wealth of synchronization and triggering facilities, which enables system integrators to create powerful and highly flexible automatic measurement systems. Key features include a built in autofocus algorithm to allow focusing to be achieved by moving a fixed focus camera by axis. It is also possible to use this algorithm to take a measurement in this axis. Coordination of image capture with position control allowing capture frames to be position stamped or triggered at predetermined axis positions. The Deva 004 CMM Controller is fully supported by a variety of 3rd party software packages.

Deva Electronic Controls Ltd is a UK based engineering company established in 1985, specializing in the manufacturing of PC based Position Measurement and Motion Control products.
