Impact Software Suite, v. 8.0, from PPT Vision Inc., supports the company’s latest Impact T3X Series hardware and includes enhancements and functions said to revolutionize machine vision software. User-friendly features include drag-and-drop tools and controls, snap-to-grid alignment on the control panel canvas, and easy data linking between vision tools and controls. Included Vision Program Manager (VPM) has more than 120 tools, including OCR, blob analysis, circle gauge, circular pattern find, line find, and sub-pixel gauging to allow the creation of vision programs for a broad range of demanding applications. Its pre-configured built-in operator panel displays inspection data and pass/fail results at the touch of a button. Version 8.0 also includes Control Panel Manager (CPM) that allows users to create professional, custom control panels with multiple image displays, data charts, real-time inspection results with password-protected panels, and frames and tabs using more than 60 fully-configurable controls. Intuitive programming interface expedites setup. Other enhancements include support of the Modbus communications protocol, an enhanced OCR tool, the addition of step-and-repeat capabilities to the setup panels of all line gauge tools, and a new tolerance control.
