The fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) is here – and it’s changing the face of manufacturing. Machine vision systems are stepping in to the automation process to act as the ‘eyes on the ground’ in day-to-day operations, and USB’s high data transmission rates make it the perfect interface for these applications. However, industrial environments present challenges in terms of environmental conditions, equipment security concerns and more – often necessitating host computers to be located off the factory floor. With current USB copper cable solutions able to reach only 5 meters, installation options have been severely limited – until now.
According to Markets and Markets the global machine vision market size is projected to reach $13B by 2025 with the major driving factors being an increased need for quality inspection and automation.
With rapid growth and unique challenges in mind, Cosemi AOCs provide the flexibility needed to support this growing sector. From automatic inspection to process control and robot guidance, Cosemi AOCs enable transmission of bigger bandwidth at faster speeds. With long lengths for extended runs down a production or inspection line, thin and lightweight for easy cable management and extremely fast 10 Gbps data transfer rates – go long with Cosemi AOCs.
