Andor Technology has joined the Image Acquisition Partner Program from MVTec, a Munich-based international manufacturer of standard software products for machine vision. An image acquisition interface has been compiled between Andor's sensitive, low-noise cameras and MVTec's image processing library Halcon.

The Halcon Andor interface allows the configuration of and data acquisition from Andor's iKon-M and Luca-R cameras through MVTec's Halcon software, using a camera abstraction layer provided by the Halcon library. The interface is available for Halcon 8.0 and 9.0 as well as all upcoming software releases.

Christian Felsheim, OEM sales manager at Andor Technology, said: 'Our partnering with MVTec brings a wide range of added benefits to our customers in the photovoltaic and life sciences related industries and makes our iKon-M and Luca-R cameras even more productive tools.'

Christoph Zierl, director product management, MVTec, commented: 'Thanks to our latest cooperation with Andor, Halcon now supports scientific-grade high sensitivity cameras. This is attractive to our customers with demanding inspection applications, like in the PV industry, and it opens new frontiers for the automated medical image analysis.'
