High-end color vision system now available in a Low-Cost SmartImage Sensor

Atlanta, Mar 03, 2003 – DVT Corporation, who invented the “smart camera” over ten years ago, has introduced the industry’s first color machine vision sensors, the DVT Legend 542C and 544C SmartImage Sensors.

Color recognition is another DVT breakthrough that has added new levels of flexibility and power to many inspection applications. Until recently, color machine vision systems were expensive, bulky and complex to implement into the factory floor. DVT’s newest SmartImage Sensors represent the industry’s first Ethernet-ready vision sensor with color capability. The supported color spaces are: RGB, Optical Density, CIE LAB DeltaE and CIE LCH DeltaEcmc.

These vision sensors are designed to perform a multitude of color inspections in a diverse group of industries. For example, they can be used in the automotive industry to automatically check proper placement of color-coded fuses in the car’s fusebox; in the packaging industry to inspect print and decorations in full color; in food processing to verify color of fruits and vegetables; and in the electronics industry to verify the sequence of colored wires and components on circuit boards. Other uses include finding color defects, finding and measuring print register errors and monitoring the consistency of color and measuring its variation. Color SmartImage Sensors can quickly and easily be added, by end-users and OEMs alike, to any point on the manufacturing line where color inspection is required, for thousands of dollars less than traditional color inspection systems.

Available now and priced at $5995, the DVT Model 542C features a resolution of 640 x 480. A mega-pixel (1280 x 1024) version of the unit, the Model 544C, is priced at $9995. Purchase includes FrameWork user-interface software and over 30 hours of free training in an interactive CD-ROM and/or local workshop in the customer’s region.

Headquartered in Norcross, GA, DVT Corporation ignited the machine vision revolution in the early 1990s with SmartImage Sensors and has continued to upgrade, enhance and integrate the technology into the most cost-effective vision systems in the industry. Starting at $2995, all SmartImage Sensors are Ethernet ready. Whether implemented as a simple, direct connection between the SmartImage Sensor and a computer, or as a connection that crosses the globe via the Internet, DVT exploits the Ethernet's architecture to bring real-time inspections and remote diagnostics to any aspect of a company’s enterprise.
