Eden Prairie, MN PPT Vision released its new Impact A20 intelligent camera. The company says the camera and bundled software suite deliver high-end machine vision power and flexibility in a vision sensor profile. The unit is said to be industrially rugged yet compact, offering high-performance on-board image processing, a digital imaging sensor, real-time I/O and 256 MB of on-board memory.
Included in the software suite, the Impact Vision Program Manager (VPM) is said to comprise more than 120 tools, including optical character recognition (OCR), blob analysis, circle gauge, circular pattern find, line find, sub-pixel gauging and other vision tools. A pre-configured operator panel is built within VPM so inspection data and pass/fail results can be displayed at the touch of a button. Another tool, Impact Control Panel Manager (CPM), reportedly includes more than 60 fully-configurable controls, allowing users to create custom, professional control panels with multiple image displays, data charts, real-time inspection results with password-protected panels, frames and tabs.
