Cognex Corporation announced that its OCRMax™ technology now includes an automatic tuning capability. This new auto-tune feature makes complex OCR applications simple for even the novice user and is available in the In-Sight® Explorer 4.8 and VisionPro® 8.1 software releases.
When a user clicks the auto-tune button, the system acquires a sample image and automatically adjusts the tool to its optimal parameters for robust reading performance. The advanced OCRMax algorithm prevents misreads and provides easy font management for optical character recognition and verification (OCR and OCV) applications (e.g., decoding human-readable date or lot codes or serial numbers). OCRMax is an all-in-one tool that can handle character variations, text skew, proportional fonts and variable string lengths, while providing high read rates, reduced setup time, and faster deployment.
In addition to the new feature, the In-Sight Explorer 4.8 software release includes enhancements for 2-D code reading, process feedback, and communications. For more information, click here.
