iNspect Express version 1700 for Boa
Dalsa has released iNspect Express version 1700 software for its Boa smart cameras. The software adds new features, improves performance, and offers even greater ease-of-use.
Designed for automated inspection and quality assurance, Boa smart cameras provide cost-effective machine vision solutions for end users across a broad spectrum of industries. The iNspect Express software interface allows users of all experience levels to setup and deploy solutions with no programming required.
The software version introduces optimised algorithms for 360° search, optical character recognition (OCR) and 2D matrix reading, as well as improved calibration tools. These optimisations provide greater robustness and over 10 times speed improvement in some applications. Also introduced with this release is a new PC-based application for displaying images and results from multiple Boa cameras on the same screen. Operators using this application can monitor production, change job files and review inspection history of any Boa connected to the local network.
In addition to these core optimisations, iNspect Express 1700 software includes improvements to the user interface. The built-in script tool has been enhanced with new functions and a syntax checker, a new string editor has been embedded to simplify integration with third-party equipment, and interactive tool management has been implemented to assist users during program development. These and other improvements introduced in the software will extend Boa usage to more difficult applications that typically demand more expensive solutions.
Available in a range of resolution and speed models, Boa smart cameras can be integrated quickly into the factory enterprise and offer various methods for interfacing on the factory floor.
