PPT Vision'sImpact M-Series Embedded
Vision System delivers increased precision and speed to automated inspection,
guidance and identification production processes. Featuring up to four
asynchronously triggered cameras that run on a single processor, the M-Series
Embedded Vision System allows each M-Series camera to be independently optimized
with the appropriate speed, resolution and size. With high-speed camera frame
rates, up to 210 frames per second, the Impact M-Series Embedded Vision System
provides complete images to the dual-core processor, allowing capture of fast
moving products. PPT Vision says the Impact
M-Series is designed with high performance processing and performs at more than
twice the speed of most of today's cameras, resulting in more high quality
The M-100 camera's footprint measures 29 x 29 mm-the Impact M-Series delivers
high speeds and precision in areas with limited access or environmental
constraints. With 15 Impact M-Series camera models available, users have the
ability to choose the right camera speed, resolution and size to accommodate
versatile application requirements.
The 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. By eliminating the need to purchase multiple systems for
separate inspection/guidance programs, the Impact M-Series saves additional
costs and reduces setup and networking time. The M-Series is an ideal machine
vision solution for manufacturing industries that require more than one
inspection, including electronics, pharmaceutical, medical devices, consumer
products and automotive.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
