PPT Vision has introduced the Impact 10.1 version of its standard machine vision software. It can be used with any of the company’s smart camera systems, including the M-Series embedded vision system, which allows users to perform up to four independently initiated inspections using a single vision processor. The software provides customers with a fast option for using color, line-scan and gray-scale cameras together with a single vision processor to solve high-speed multicamera inspection applications. All new models of the M-Series color and line-scan cameras can be connected quickly to an M-Series processor because the cameras communicate using the Gigabit Ethernet protocol. The software offers new features, including an enhanced 2-D data matrix inspection tool with improved robustness in the presence of noise around the symbol.
