sportsbet SmartVision Software represents a significant breakthrough in cost-effectiveness, connectivity, and customization in vision systems. The sportsbet Cortex system is an all-in-one vision device that reduces integration time with standardized hardware and software.
Combining Ease of Use with High Performance
sportsbet SmartVision software is a highly scalable PC-based vision system that combines a high-performance, platform independent vision engine with an easy-to-use standard interface.
Using programmable software logic, sportsbet SmartVision software can control virtually any industry-standard third-party camera and lighting system to perform high-precision part and defect identification, measurement, sorting, and robotic guidance. Over 3,000 sportsbet SmartVision software licenses are in use around the world.
Scalable Across Application Types and Levels of Complexity
The sportsbet SmartVision engine can control multiple cameras in a single application to perform numerous independent sequences comprised of ordered lists of steps. Each step contains one sportsbet SmartVision software tool. Sequences can be single-stepped for debugging.
Results can range from a simple pass/fail condition to the more involved precise position of objects for complex applications. These results can then be used by other steps in the application. Programmable flow control provides for simple branching within sequences.
A complete set of modern vision tools is provided, including edge finding, blob analysis, measurement, OCR, barcode reading, scripting and image processing tools. Tools are dragged and dropped into an inspection sequence and are easily configured using simple dialog boxes. In addition, sportsbet SmartVision software has the capability of integrating third party vision tools for specific applications. Several third party tools are available and more are added as required.
Rapid Application Development
sportsbet SmartVision software provides a rapid application development platform for machine vision applications. Many applications can be developed with no traditional programming required.
For highly complex applications, a scripting tool is provided to allow programming logic to be created without the need for a compiler or any other external development environment. For the most sophisticated users, sportsbet SmartVision software can be embedded into a traditional software to create custom interfaces. sportsbet SmartVision software also leverages leading open source software.
Strong Communications Infrastructure
sportsbet SmartVision software takes advantage of advanced communications protocols making integration faster and easier for standardization across your organization.
Remote Configuration and Troubleshooting
A TCP/IP link can be used to create and modify inspection sequences. As a result, the support and troubleshooting of vision applications can be deployed remotely from anywhere around the world.

sportsbet SmartVision Architecture
An Integrated Hardware/Software Vision System
The sportsbet Cortex system is an all-in-one vision device running sportsbet SmartVision software. The system is designed to reduce your integration time by providing an integrated vision solution that comes complete with standardized hardware and software. The system interfaces with a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) through the use of a wide variety of field bus interfaces.
The sportsbet Cortex system is equipped with discrete I/O connectors that are used to trigger the attached cameras and lights. The I/O Ports are programmable and can be used to trigger any combination of camera devices.
The USB connectors are standard USB 2.0 plug and play connectors. These connectors are used for the integrated backup device and other peripherals such as a keyboard and mouse.
Currently two models are available: sportsbet Cortex 812 system and sportsbet Cortex 204 system. The sportsbet Cortex 812 system supports up to eight cameras and twelve lights while the sportsbet Cortex 204 system supports up to two cameras and four lights.
sportsbet Cortex Vision Enclosure
The sportsbet Cortex system is a family of vision enclosures.
The sportsbet Cortex System is designed for use with Opteon Ethernet cameras. It provides camera power over the Ethernet cable known as Power Over Ethernet (PoE). The sportsbet Cortex is powered by 100-240VAC with a maximum current draw of 8A. The light outputs are provided with pins for +5V, +12V and +24V lighting. Cameras can be triggered using hardware I/O lines or in software over Ethernet.
The sportsbet Cortex system uses sportsbet SmartVision software as its integrated vision development platform.
