Available from PPT Vision are 26 Impact M-Series color cameras with dedicated color Impact software tools for sorting, monitoring and identifying color objects. The embedded vision system is a fast and robust factory automation camera system, and the addition of numerous new color smart cameras allows it to solve a broader range of machine vision applications. The cameras range from VGA-resolution models to 210-fps high-speed types to a 5-megapixel model. Gray-scale cameras such as the Impact A20 solve the majority of machine vision applications. However, sophisticated color cameras and tools are needed to solve numerous critical inspection and guidance operations for industries ranging from food products to transportation equipment. Applications include detecting food spoilage and determining the fat content in meat.
