PPT Vision Inc. has announced the addition of two Gigabit Ethernet-compatible specialty cameras as well as the release of Version 10.3 of the Impact software suite to support all cameras in its M-Series embedded machine vision system. The industrial-grade 8-megapixel, 4/3-in. progressive-scan camera, with 3296 x 2472-pixel resolution and operation at 10 fps, is suitable for inspections that require a high-resolution, high-quality image and a wide field of view. For color inspection, the three-CCD color camera has a prism-block assembly that supports three 1/1.8-in. CCDs to provide 1620 x 1236-pixel resolution, operation at 15 fps and good light gathering. The cameras were developed by JAI, the company's strategic partner. PPT's Impact 10.3 software offers a mode to automatically trigger a camera based on a user-defined time period.
