Impact M-Series Vision System
Oct 2010PPT VISIONRequest Info
BLOOMINGTON, Minn., Oct. 22, 2010 — PPT Vision has announced an asynchronously triggered single vision system with four independently operating cameras, each running its own inspection/guidance program.
The M-Series embedded system allows users to perform up to four inspections that can be initiated independently, at different times or simultaneously, using a single vision processor. Cost savings are achieved by eliminating the need to purchase multiple systems for separate inspection/guidance programs, and setup and networking times are reduced.
A PC is not required for configuring and operating the system. The embedded M40 processor eliminates the need for a separate computer for programming and operation, creating a straightforward, networked smart camera vision system. The processor uses proprietary universal Impact software, which runs on Microsoft Windows XP and features direct connections to a monitor, keyboard and mouse. Customers program and operate the vision system directly from the processor, which transmits data and images, connecting directly to databases, supervisory control and data acquisition systems, and other business system software.
Manufacturing industries ranging from electronics, pharmaceutical and medical devices to consumer products and automotive, use the vision system. Applications for the embedded vision processor include inspecting dimensions, co-planarity, positioning and identification markings – human-readable text labels and bar codes. It also can differentiate parts, locating defects and detecting flaws on four sides. Typical applications include inspecting electronic connectors, correct part seating during die stamping, and detection of fill level and cap position on bottles.
