ETTLINGEN, Germany, Oct. 15, 2015 — Vision Components GmbH has announced the ARM processor-based Z series of smart cameras, available with HALCON embedded software for machine vision applications.
Users can develop applications on a PC, then export to the smart camera. HALCON 12.0.1 enables speed increases and offers features that facilitate application development. Optical character recognition has been enhanced to ensure high recognition rates and reduce the need for parameter adjustments.
The software is able to read characters of any size and distinguish text from background, even under challenging conditions such as distorted characters. Message queues for interthread communication were added, along with a range of new operators for bead inspection. Tuples or iconic variables can be directly verified while the HDevelop software interface can process vector variables and visualize tuples as 1D or 2D plots from the variable window.
The recognition and processing of blurred our out-of-focus images of EAN-13/UPC-A barcodes have been improved, and 2/5 interleaved codes are detected with a higher tolerance for print growth, loss and overexposure.
