Vision system designed for integrators

Though PPT Vision's (Eden Prairie, MN) Impact Vision System is priced competitively with vision sensors, the company says it possesses the power and flexibility of large, dedicated vision systems. Its high-speed processor and sub-pixel software algorithms offer a range of inspection tasks, including pattern find, blob, edge find, OCV, OCR, gauge, and contrast sensing.

Though PPT Vision's (Eden Prairie, MN) Impact Vision System is priced competitively with vision sensors, the company says it possesses the power and flexibility of large, dedicated vision systems. Its high-speed processor and sub-pixel software algorithms offer a range of inspection tasks, including pattern find, blob, edge find, OCV, OCR, gauge, and contrast sensing.

The system can achieve a 60 full-frames per second image capture rate, with greater speeds available using built-in support for partial scanning. Digital Serial Link high-speed cameras, including new high-resolution and micro-head cameras, are supported.


OEMs and system integrators are offered low-level access to the system's algorithm and function libraries, allowing them to develop custom inspections. Point-and-click graphical user interface (GUI) software allows quick generation of operator interfaces. The system is DIN rail mountable.

Inspection Builder software enables speedy configuration of inspection programs via a GUI. Icons representing actual inspection algorithms and controls are arranged and configured on the user interface screen to provide inspection of each part. Users can also set up reusable program segments to accomplish specific tasks.

In addition, the processor acts as a server for inspection data, allowing results and images to be collected and set up for multiple-location custom viewing and display via Ethernet connectivity. Control Panel Manager software provides panel building graphical components that allow users to customize control panels. Off-the-shelf Java, Active X, or other third-party controls can be added to the system's library. Interactive touchscreen buttons; image and data displays; as well as password protection schemes can be created using the same drag-and-drop programming method.
