At the core of FiberVision’s Nanosmart-PoE (Power over Ethernet) is the single-board camera VCSBC4012 nano by Vision Components. With Nanosmart-PoE, all interfaces to the world outside are provided using just an RJ45 and a RJ48 plug. The RJ45 Power over Ethernet (active PoE) plug provides the 100-MBit data interface as well as power supply. The RJ48 plug makes available eight digital 24-V inputs or outputs and a 24-V dc power supply. High-speed inputs and outputs are used for precise camera and flash light synchronization. The delay between flash trigger and exposure start is programmable, as is the flashing time. Well-defined, short exposure times are available, even with the rolling shutter of the CMOS camera with five megapixels. Six LEDs are available to display operational states; their 3.3-V power supplies are made available on an OEM plug.
