Precise synchronization of multi-camera systems with PTP

The five Mako models now include the PTP function (Precision Time Protocol). PTP (aka IEEE 1588) is a standard network protocol that synchronizes the clocks of several devices in a network with one master device. The devices may be cameras but also other equipment such as a GPS module. With PTP, Mako cameras can be perfectly synchronized with each-other and any other camera or device supporting this standard. This allows accurate inspection with multi-camera imaging systems.

One-cable connectivity with Trigger over Ethernet

The new firmware of these models now supports Trigger over Ethernet (ToE). This function allows to precisely trigger the cameras via the Gigabit Ethernet interface cable. Coupled with the Mako’s Power over Ethernet function, ToE simplifies the camera integration with only one cable for all: power, trigger, camera control and image data transmission.
