Boa Monochrome and Colour Smart Camera

A complementary device for BOA smart cameras, the BOA NEXUS Smart Bridge works in conjunction with existing BOA camera systems to expand their information-sharing and monitoring capabilities by providing a "smart bridge" between BOA cameras, associated system resources and operators.

The BOA NEXUS' smart functionality uses a standard monitor to allow users to realize a runtime monitoring system that will display inspection images and application-specific information from a number of BOA cameras.

Offering a convenient means of setting up and maintaining BOA cameras online, the NEXUS supports methods of collecting and distributing information between the cameras, other system components and the factory floor. The device displays inspection images and application-specific information, conveniently, from multiple BOA cameras and so eliminates the need for expensive human/machine interfaces (HMI).

NEXUS resources
The device is equipped with a low power, dual core Atom processor, a 40 GB solid-state hard drive and 2GBs of DDR2 memory.

Each of the 6 Gigabit compliant Ethernet ports internally connect through independent data lanes to alleviate bandwidth bottlenecks. Network ports can be configured for isolated or bridged system configurations and each can be expanded using external switches to accommodate larger camera installations. In addition to Ethernet, also provided are standard external interfaces for system integration, including display, 3 USB ports and an RS-232 serial port. The display port is compatible with standard monitors and capable of supporting resolutions up to 2048 x 1536.

Built-in NEXUS software automatically discovers BOA cameras on the network (either directly or indirectly via Ethernet switches) and helps manage any IP address and firmware version conflicts.

Additonally, the software interface provides easy access to setup, maintenance and operational features of the BOA INS and IDR cameras. BOA PRO users can setup cameras using client software installed on the device and utilize prebuilt Win32 compatible operator interfaces customized for specific application needs.
