Microscan: Turnkey Optical Inspection Solution
Optical inspection system.
Renton, WA — Microscan is introducing the new I-PAK® SE optical inspection system, called the only complete turnkey solution designed specifically for pharmaceutical lot tracking and validation. As a complete and easy-to-use package, the inspection system maximizes efficiency and ease of use while enabling the pharmaceutical industry to meet the requirements of 21 CFR Part 11 for reliable, accurate and validated inspection of labels and products.

At the core of the new entry is the proven I-PAK inspection system already in use by major pharmaceutical manufacturers worldwide. This machine vision system is based on patented Visionscape® hardware and software accessed through a customized software GUI designed specifically for pharmaceutical inspection.

According to the company, the new product takes this proven solution one step further to ensure ease of installation and line use by pairing the core I-PAK inspection system with an industrial touch-screen PC, packaged inside a stainless steel enclosure that is wash-down rated. The result is a powerful solution for comprehensive pharmaceutical inspection that is easy to deploy, simple to use, and requires no routine maintenance. It is described as the only turnkey pharmaceutical inspection solution available that is ready to connect to the line upon delivery.

With the introduction of this new turnkey package, I-PAK is now available in three versions for flexible implementation, all meeting the pharmaceutical industry requirements of 21 CFR Part 11 for reliable, accurate and validated inspection of labels and products. The high-speed, industrial touch-screen PC in an IP67 stainless steel enclosure with tilted top, is specifically designed for pharmaceutical environments. The kit consists of Visionscape board and software, and supports up to four progressive scan cameras or one CameraLink digital camera.

The I-PAK HE Software CD offers I-PAK interface and functionality for Visionscape Smart Cameras.
