The Impact Vision Program Manager (VPM), which is included in the software suite, has more than 120 tools, including OCR, blob analysis, circle gauge, circular pattern find, line find, and sub-pixel gauging, amongst others. A pre-configured operator panel is built within the VPM so inspection data and pass/fail results can be easily displayed. In addition, Impact Control Panel Manager (CPM) is available with more than 60 fully-configurable controls, allowing users to create custom, professional control panels with multiple image displays, data charts, real-time inspection results with password-protected panels, frames, and tabs.

The Impact Software Suite is supplied with multi-language support. Users can create a language resource file such that all user-interface text within the software can be displayed in their local language. Completed resource files for Chinese, Japanese and German are currently available for distribution.

A broad array of discrete I/O, serial, Ethernet/IP, TCP/IP, HTTP, and ActiveX communication protocols make the Impact A20 compatible with a full spectrum of industrial control equipment and instrumentation.
