IMPACTÂ M-Series Embedded Vision System - The IMPACTÂ M-Series Embedded Vision System is an advanced asynchronously-triggered four-camera embedded vision system that achieves cost savings and simplifies setup. This is a Control Engineering 2011 Engineers' Choice (EC) nominee.The PPT Vision Impact M-Series Embedded Vision System presents a unique breakthrough in vision system technology and capabilities. The new M-Series System allows users to perform up to four unique inspections that can be initiated independently, at different times or simultaneously, utilizing a single vision processor. Cost savings are achieved by eliminating the need to purchase multiple systems for separate inspection/guidance programs, as well as greatly reducing setup and networking time.

No PC is required for configuring and operating the Impact M-Series Embedded Vision System. The M-Series embedded M40 processor eliminates the need for a separate computer for programming and operation, creating a straightforward, networked smart camera vision system. The M40 Processor utilizes PPT Vision's universal Impact software, which works with the Microsoft Windows XP operating system and features direct connections to a monitor, keyboard and mouse. Customers are empowered to program and operate the Impact vision system directly from the M40 processor. The M40 Processor utilizes the Windows XP operating system to simply transmit data and images, connecting directly to databases, SCADA systems and other business system software.

The Impact M-Series delivers a new level of performance and value for manufacturers. This revolutionary product opens up a host of applications for PPT Vision's guaranteed machine vision solutions and delivers unprecedented precision and speed to automated inspection, guidance and identification production processes. This manufacturing improvement enabler combines speed and precision, programming flexibility and multiple inspection views at an optimal price.
