PPT Vision adds two specialty cameras
November 8, 2011 - PPT Vision announced two GigE-compatible specialty cameras including the 8-megapixel and 3-CCD models as well as the release of Version 10.3 of the Impact Software Suite to support all cameras in its M-Series embedded machine vision system.
The 8-megapixel, 4/3” progressive scan camera, with 3296 x 2472 pixel resolution and 10 frames per second (fps), is ideal for inspections that require a high-resolution, superior quality image and a wide field of view. The camera’s rugged, industrial-grade architecture will withstand the rigors of manufacturing settings while delivering exceptional resolution and quality.
The 3CCD color camera has a prism-block assembly that supports three 1/1.8” CCDs to provide 1620 x 1236 pixel resolution, 15 fps and superior light gathering. With its high image quality and color fidelity, the 3CCD camera is designed for a wide range of color inspections within the printing, electronics and general manufacturing industries.
PPT’s Impact 10.3 Software offers a number of key enhancements including an “auto-trigger” mode to automatically trigger a camera based on a user-defined time period as well as new drag-and-drop and angle tools. This latest version supports the new specialty cameras, as well as the full M-Series embedded vision system family, with added functionality and user control.
“These specialty cameras were developed by JAI, our strategic partner,” said Bob Heller, CEO of PPT Vision. “We are pleased to partner with JAI in our continuing commitment to make the latest vision technologies available to solve today’s complex inspection challenges.”
“We are committed to offering the industry’s leading vision and software technologies, coupled with superior engineering support and customer service—guaranteed” said Heller. “Today’s announcement marks a bold step forward in our expanding product roadmap, which is truly exciting.”
PPT Vision develops, manufactures and markets machine vision solutions for global markets, including automotive, pharmaceutical, electronics and general manufacturing operations.
