Right-Angle Intelligent Cameras from PPT Vision
Right-angle machine vision camera.
Bloomington, MN — PPT Vision, Inc. has introduced its Impact smart camera, the Right-Angle T-Series intelligent camera. The product is paired with the company's full Impact software suite, which solves challenging industrial vision applications such as product or feature inspection, location and identification. The smart cameras use closely integrated vision software and hardware to deliver a sophisticated solution for inspection, optical character recognition (OCR) and many other machine vision applications.

The T-Series smart cameras are now available in right-angle housings, as well as in-line and remote-head housings, to offer operators the flexibility to appropriately position the cameras in an available mechanical envelope, making it simple to install for most manufacturing machinery configurations.

However, the most distinguishing characteristic is its advanced image processing software. According to the company, the software delivers an exceptionally versatile and flexible industrial vision solution. Impact VPM (Vision Program Manager) includes 120 image analysis tools and offers intuitive icon-based, drag-and-drop configuration for user-friendly tool set-up — with no programming language knowledge required.

The comprehensive software suite facilitates coordinate transfer for robotic guidance, reading of 2D and 1D barcodes for product ID, advanced measurement tools for product gauging and many additional applications. The CPM (Control Program Manager) is a simple way to create custom operator HMIs (human machine interfaces) for controlling single or multiple smart cameras. This multi-faceted machine vision software also provides secure user IDs and password control-critical smart camera attributes for designing and implementing pharmaceutical FDA 21 CFR part 11 compliant systems. The Right-Angle intelligent camera is particularly well suited for high-speed inspections. With its 1,600 MIPs rated processor, the camera can inspect up to 6,000 parts-per-minute. Six Right Angle T-Series models are available — including color, grayscale and 1600 x 1200 resolution options — allowing customers to select the resolution, speed, performance and price-point desired to effectively solve a wide array of automated inspections. Vision inspection results can be communicated with the camera's optically isolated outputs or through its serial or Ethernet port.
