Pixact Transmit Camera Images Using Perle Multimode Fiber Converters for Automated Monitoring of Industrial Process

Pixact NetworkThe visual monitoring of a manufacturing process is a necessary function. It is usually conducted by operators sitting at control desks who initiate an action when something unexpected happens. However, if the root problem cannot be determined in real-time, production is temporarily shut down to prevent further damage. This is costly.

Pixact, a manufacturer of image-based process measurement technology, offers an alternative. They provide specialised cameras and processing monitoring software that records and analyzes industrial processes. The advantages over human visual quality control are plentiful.

Production facilities can streamline their operations, speed up error detection, and play-back recorded footage when evaluating and optimising processes.
We spoke with Kalle Marjanen, Chief Optical Engineer at Pixact, to find out how their equipment is used in Industrial Manufacturing plants, and how Perle Media Converters feature in these installations.

Transition SFP Products for Flexibility

Transition Networks – Because Networks are Always in Transition!

So how do you plan for those transitions while still meeting today’s network needs? And how can you do it with today’s budget?

  1. Utilize equipment with open Small Form-factor Pluggable Transceivers (SFP) slots which can increase flexibility rather than limiting you to a specific fixed optic connection
  2. Get more from existing infrastructure by incorporating SFP features like DMI, Ethernet extension, as well as implementing fiber conservation technologies
  3. Adopt a “Pay as your grow” strategy – that allows you to pay for and populate only the ports you need today and simply add SFP transceivers as needed to accommodate your network growth
