Hi Beth,

What you'll find in these types of systems is that if the video needs to be transmitted only a short distance, from maybe 1-2 cameras, directly to a PC and no further, that 10 GigE might not be the right technology, cost-wise.

But most high-value systems aren't like that - either they have a more than half-a-dozen cameras (especially web inspection systems), they need to distribute imagery to multiple endpoints (for example, for distributed processing and analysis), the endpoints need to be far away from the inspection areas (especially in dirty environments like steel or textile inspection), or some combination of the above.

In any of those cases, 10 GigE can bring a cost savings, especially when you subtract out the cost of framegrabbers and/or expensive cabling and repeaters.

It would seem that with all the emerging high-bandwidth applications in medical, military and other segments, 10-Gigabit would be a natural upgrade path to get the higher performance so the machine vision infrastructure can keep up. What is the downside to going with 10-Gigabit Ethernet offerings? Higher price?

Last year at Hannover Fair, lots of people were talking about Industry 4.0. This is a concept that seems to have a different name in every region. I’ve been referring to it as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), not to be confused with the plain old Internet of Things (IoT). Others refer to it as the Connected Industry, the smart factory concept, M2M, data extraction, and so on.
