Application for USB-Server Industry:

Network integration of a thermal imager


USB Server

Definition of tasks

A stationary thermal imager is needed for thermal inspection of parts in a series production system. The camera model used here uses a USB port as the communications interface, so that a solution for the following customer requirements had to be found:

- Installation of a PC in range of the permissible USB cable lengths is not possible
- The images should be able to be viewed at various workstations
- The visualizing and processing programs sometimes run on virtualized systems

The solution

A USB-Server Isochron in IP66 enclosure is installed which links the camera to the network. The USB Redirector installed on the respective computers ensures that the camera is available just as if it were locally connected.
