OnLogic Karbon 800 Rugged Computer Wins Vision Systems Design Innovators Award

Presented at Automate 2022 in Detroit, Michigan, the Innovators Awards recognize outstanding products and services for the machine vision industry.

Global industrial computer hardware manufacturer and solution provider, OnLogic (www.onlogic.com), has been recognized among the best in machine vision by the judges of the Vision Systems Design 2022 Innovators Awards program. The company's Karbon 800 Series of rugged computers earned a Silver Innovators Award, which was presented to the OnLogic team on the show floor of Automate 2022 in Detroit, Michigan on Monday.



"The Vision Systems Design team would like to congratulate OnLogic for their score in the 2022 Innovators Awards program," says Chris McLoone, Editor in Chief of Vision Systems Design. "Each year this unbiased and increasingly competitive program aims to celebrate the most innovative products and systems in machine vision. The OnLogic team should be very proud."


The OnLogic Karbon 800 Series is designed for Industry 4.0 and Industrial IoT applications that require powerful computing in harsh environments or remote locations. The computers are powered by Intel's latest 12th Generation of Core processors, formerly known as Alder Lake.


"We're thrilled that the Karbon 800 has been recognized for the potential it holds to help innovators create incredible machine vision solutions," says Kim Wasserman, Director of Product Management at OnLogic. "We've focussed on features and expansion options to support the wide range of solutions our customers are building using our rugged computers. This includes PCIe Gen 4.0 expansion for the latest GPUs, and new I/O options like 10GbE and M12 LAN. We're also working on additional configurations that will launch soon, including a high-capacity RAID array option. Today's vision-based projects are all unique, so configurability and customization were key requirements in the development of the Karbon 800 Series."
