Greater Scalability


The SmartAdvisor SmartNet solution is based on a modular 1-to-1 camera to central unit and light design that allows users to add a single camera without having to purchase a multi-camera infrastructure. You will see the immediate benefits of performing consistent analysis and diagnostics with enhanced surface monitoring and troubleshooting tools while the process line is running at full-production speeds. Increase your production yield rates, machine efficiency, and operator productivity with high-definition video capture, review and storage tools from any networked location using Ethernet protocols.

When you decide to increase process analysis upstream or downstream, you can easily add SmartAdvisor SmartNet units just about anywhere on your line. Installation and maintenance is simple, especially since all SmartAdvisor SmartNet™ systems utilize the same hardware. This scalability enables your operations and maintenance teams to get up-and-running fast with limited training.

Maximum Power and Flexibility


The modular 1-1 design of the SmartAdvisor SmartNet solution delivers fast system response with high frame rate cameras that enable inspection capabilities. In fact, you can assign different licensed features per camera and select which classification rules apply to which camera. The solution also enables you to configure multiple camera types, including standard monochrome and color cameras, high-definition cameras and high-speed cameras, where the maximum distance between any two cameras can be up to 400 meters. Groups of SmartAdvisor SmartNet nodes can be also be combined over longer distances using both copper and fiber standard network components.
