Impact M-Series embedded vision system

Share this on social media:

PPT Vision has released its Impact M-Series embedded vision system. The M-Series system allows users to perform up to four unique inspections that can be initiated independently – at different times or simultaneously – utilising a single vision processor. Significant cost savings are achieved by eliminating the need to purchase multiple systems for separate inspection/guidance programs, as well as greatly reducing setup and networking time.

Unlike other smart cameras, no PC is required for configuring and operating the system. The M-Series embedded M40 processor eliminates the need for a separate computer for programming and operation, creating a straightforward, networked smart camera vision system. The M40 processor utilises PPT Vision's universal Impact software, which works with the Microsoft Windows XP operating system and features direct connections to a monitor, keyboard and mouse. Customers can program and operate the Impact vision system directly from the M40 processor. The M40 processor utilises the Windows XP operating system to transmit data and images, connecting directly to databases, SCADA systems and other business system software.

The embedded vision processor is an ideal solution for inspecting dimensions, coplanarity, positioning and identification markings – both human readable text labels and barcodes. M-Series vision systems also excel at differentiating parts, locating defects and detecting flaws on four sides of a part. Typical applications include inspecting electronic connectors, correct part seating during die stamping, and detection of fill level and cap position on bottles.
