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.
Unlike other smart cameras, no PC is required for configuring and
operating the Impact M-Series Embedded Vision System. The M-Series
embedded M40 processor eliminates the need for a separate computer for
programming and operation. The M40 Processor utilizes PPT Vision's universal Impact
software, which works with the Microsoft Windows XP operating system and
features direct connections to a monitor, keyboard and mouse. The M40 Processor
utilizes the Windows XP operating system to simply transmit data and images, connecting
directly to databases, SCADA systems and other business system software.
M-Series embedded vision processor's proficiencies are useful in manufacturing
industries such as electronics, pharmaceutical, medical devices, consumer
products and automotive. The M-Series embedded vision processor is a useful solution
for inspecting dimensions, coplanarity, positioning and identification
markings-both human readable text labels and barcodes. M-Series vision
systems can be used for differentiating parts, locating defects and detecting
flaws on 4 sides of a part. Typical applications include inspecting
electronic connectors, correct part seating during die stamping, and detection
of fill level and cap position on bottles.
