The new version of the PC-based software solution RealTime Vision by Kithara for real-time acquisition, processing and storage of image data focuses, among other things, on the support of 10GigE vision cameras including link aggregation for bundling several physical 10GigE connections. At the same time, 100GigE controllers have recently been supported. For these systems, PLC2’s PGC-1000 frame grabber card can be used, which allows the CPU to be almost completely unloaded during image acquisition processes. For storing image data volumes, multiple NVMe SSDs can be used in a RAID-0 array, which achieve extremely high write and read speeds in a real-time context.
