Bloomington, MN – PPT VISION, Inc. announces the machine vision industry’s most intuitive OCR (optical character recognition) technology is now available with its 8.3 release of IMPACT™ software.
PPT IMPACT smart cameras also reliably read difficult dot-matrix printing, a challenge often encountered with label inspection, bottle inspection and package inspection. IMPACT’s sophisticated image processing can even reliably read characters of different sizes. The complex pattern recognition algorithms in IMPACT’s OCR tool are now simple to manage in many print inspection and identification system applications. In addition to being so reliably robust, PPT VISION’s OCR tool is also deterministically fast–reading text strings at 1.0 milliseconds per character and .01 seconds for a 10-character word or part number–making it an ideal solution for many high-speed inspection applications.
IMPACT OCR software runs on all PPT VISION IMPACT Intelligent Camera platforms and is an add-on license to the IMPACT 8.3 software. It is available on the value-priced CMOS imager IMPACT A-Series, the powerful self-contained IMPACT T-Series and the versatile, 18 I/O (inputs and outputs) IMPACT C-Series.
IMPACT’s just-released 8.3 software also includes Microsoft® ActiveX® control software that allows IMPACT OCR data to be seamlessly imbedded in machine control software and full-factory SCADA systems. Additionally in 8.3, IMPACT delivers many simple tool set-up features reducing inspection configuration time.
