PPT Vision Intros 26 New Color Cameras
New class of color camera.
Bloomington, MN — PPT Vision has introduced 26 new IMPACT® M-Series color cameras with dedicated software color tools for sorting, monitoring and identifying color objects. The new Embedded Vision System is reportedly one of the fastest and most robust factory automation camera systems commercially available, and the addition of numerous new color cameras allows the system to solve an even broader range of challenging machine vision applications.

Color M-Series camera models range from economical VGA resolution cameras, to 210 frames-per-second high-speed cameras, to a five megapixel high-precision model.

Grayscale cameras, like the IMPACT A20, solve the majority of machine vision applications. However, sophisticated color cameras and tools are needed to solve numerous critical inspection and guidance operations for industries ranging from food products to transportation equipment. The new cameras can be used to detect wire placement and components in electronic products, food spoilage, and determine the fat content in meat. Other applications solved include sorting and identifying pharmaceutical tablets.

The IMPACT M-Series Embedded Vision System allows users to perform up to four unique inspections that can be initiated independently — at different times or simultaneously — utilizing a single vision processor. Significant cost savings are achieved by eliminating the need to purchase multiple systems for separate inspection/guidance programs, and the comprehensive system greatly reduces setup and networking time over the traditional use of multiple systems.
