|PPT VISION introduces intelligent color camera for IMPACT(tm) product line.|
MINNEAPOLIS, May 16, 2005 / PR Newswire / -- PPT VISION, Inc. (Nasdaq: PPTV) has introduced the IMPACT(tm) T23, an intelligent camera capable of acquiring and analyzing color images in real time for the purposes of 100% inspection of manufactured parts. The T23 is the latest addition to the IMPACT T-series intelligent camera family. Introduced in 2003, the IMPACT T-series is the industry's first intelligent camera family with all the features of a full-scale vision system built into the camera, delivering a cost-effective alternative to high-end vision inspection systems.
As manufacturers increasingly seek to eliminate inconsistencies in package and product color, demand for real-time color vision systems is increasing. The IMPACT T23 is designed to perform complex color inspections by rejecting products which fall outside of a preset color range. It can also be used for color-based sorting, color code verification, and paint defect detection.
The IMPACT T23 uses Inspection Builder(tm), PPT VISION's single-software platform that supports the entire IMPACT family of products. The software is a general purpose platform which has been successfully deployed in virtually every industrial category. Inspection Builder now contains powerful color image processing algorithms in combination with a broad range of gray scale algorithms, which allows the T23 to be used for color and grayscale image analysis simultaneously.
Color image processing requires significant power, so the IMPACT T23 was designed with a high-speed microprocessor, real-time operating systems, and a high performance digital color imaging sensor. A broad range of discrete, serial, and ethernet I/O make the IMPACT T-series compatible with a full spectrum of industrial control equipment and instrumentation, and provides easier, trouble-free integration.
PPT Vision is offering a free tutorial on the use and benefits of smart cameras and machine vision software and on-line virtual demonstrations of the IMPACT Inspection Builder software are available at www.pptvision.com.
