   New Intelligent Machine Vision Solution
On the industrial field, machine vision is the most popular application, and it has grown over last 10 years. Machine vision is widely related to all kinds of fields from automobile, food inspection, traffic surveillance and even handset inspection. Machine vision connects our daily life.

There are a variety of camera types that can be connected for vision applications, such as USB cameras, GigE cameras and even the Camera Link high level cameras. The TANK-6000 contains many great features which can meet different requirements mentioned above.
■ Machine vision application fields
Automobile Retail
Food Medical
Gaming Aerospace
Electronics validation Consumer goods
Graphics and animation

   USB Camera
The latest USB 3.0 provides 5Gb/s bandwidth speed, which is 10 times more than USB 2.0. Compared with USB 2.0, USB 3.0 provides higher power (0.9A) and supports up to five longer cable connections. Those advantages make USB 3.0 cameras become more and more popular in the field. It is particularly suited to all multi-camera and 3D applications due to its high-resolution and high-performance sensors, and its high data transfer rate.
■ Food inspection  
The TANK-6000 contains four USB 3.0 ports. When used for food inspection, these USB ports can be connected to multiple USB 3.0 cameras to fulfill demands in a production line or an inspection line. The cameras can be easily configured for simultaneous multiple measurement of 3D contours and colors, and for the NG goods detection in different angles. In addition, the TANK-6000 supports two PCIe x8 slots (Gen 3) for adding a motion control card to control robots to filter out the bad one.


   GigE Camera
GigE camera is a type of digital video camera commonly employed for surveillance and machine vision. With LAN connected, GigE camera can transmit real-time video to the TANK-6000 and identify captured images.
■ High Speed Image Identification  
The TANK-6000 contains four GbE LAN ports, which allow users to link multiple cameras. With Intel® HD GT2 technology, TANK-6000 supports hardware decoding, encoding and transcording capabilities as well as video and alarm management. The three 2.5’’ HDD bays support RAID function to ensure data safety. Furthermore, with the integrated iRIS solution, users can use the remote power control function for power maintenance. Wherever you are, IEI iRIS technology allows you to remotely control and monitor your devices via Internet connection.


   Camera link
“Camera Link” is a serial communication protocol standard designed for computer vision applications based on the National Semiconductor interface Channel-link. It is designed for industrial video products and usually in PCIe card type, such as PCIe x4 or higher specifications.
■ LCD panel inspection  
The TANK-6000 equips two PCIe x8 Gen 3 slots, which have 8GT/s (giga-transfer per second) bandwidth. Compared to 5GT/s of Gen 2, it provides higher bandwidth for data transmission. A camera link card can be added into the TANK-6000 to fulfill high-speed vision processing requirements in applications such as Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) in factories. With iRIS intelligent remote solution integrated, users can benefit from its group control or remote monitoring features to reduce the cost of maintenance and enhance system stability. Furthermore, the TANK-6000 is installed with the workstation-grade Intel® C226 chipset plus Xeon® E3 CPU. This combination will be really achieving high-performance processing requirements. Compared to the RACK server, the TANK-6000 is a compact-size system and is ideal for space-saving production line environments. All the abovementioned features make TANK-6000 suitable for inspection application in production industry.

   IEI iRIS Technology (IPMI 2.0 Compliant)
TANK-6000 supports the IPMI 2.0 compliant IEI iRIS module, which helps users manage the system remotely even when it is shut-down or no OS installed. Besides, remote update or monitor can save considerable cost than on-side repair.
Remote Control (KVM over IP) iRIS QNAP NAS App

    Two PCIe x8 Cards
TANK-6000 supports two PCIe x8 cards which is compliant with PCI Express 3.0 with up to 8 GT/s per lane. Users can install expansion cards into the system for different applications, such as DAQ cards, vision cards or graphics cards.
