Bloomington, MN – PPT VISION, Inc. announces the newest addition to the company’s popular series of IMPACT™ smart cameras, the Right-Angle T-Series intelligent camera. This camera is paired with PPT VISION’s full IMPACT software suite, which solves challenging industrial vision applications such as product or feature inspection, location and identification. IMPACT smart cameras employ closely integrated vision software and hardware to deliver a sophisticated solution for vial inspection, label inspection, optical character recognition (OCR) and many other machine vision applications.
IMPACT delivers an exceptionally versatile and flexible industrial vision software solution. IMPACT VPM (Vision Program Manager) features 120 image analysis tools and offers intuitive icon-based, drag-and-drop configuration for user-friendly tool set-up–with no programming language knowledge required. The comprehensive software suite facilitates coordinate transfer for robotic guidance, reading of 2D and 1D barcodes for product ID, advanced measurement tools for product gauging and many additional applications. IMPACT CPM (Control Program Manager) is a simple way to create custom operator HMIs (human machine interfaces) for controlling single or multiple IMPACT smart cameras. This multi-faceted machine vision software also features secure user IDs and password control–critical smart camera attributes for designing and implementing pharmaceutical FDA 21 CFR part 11 compliant systems.
The Right-Angle T-Series IMPACT intelligent camera is particularly well suited for high-speed inspections. With its 1,600 MIPs rated processor, the camera can inspect up to 6,000 parts-per-minute. Six Right Angle T-Series models are available–including color, grayscale and 1600 x 1200 resolution options–allowing customers to select the resolution, speed, performance and price-point desired to effectively solve a wide array of automated inspections. Vision inspection results can be communicated with the IMPACT camera’s optically isolated outputs or through its serial or Ethernet port. This information may also be communicated to a machine control system or factory SCADA system via industrial Ethernet IP® or Modbus protocols, as well as by utilizing the Microsoft® ActiveX® platform.
