PPT VISION Introduces the Industry's Highest-Resolution Intelligent Cameras for Machine Vision
MINNEAPOLIS, July 20, 2005 -- PPT VISION, Inc. (Nasdaq: PPTV) today announced two new intelligent camera models, the IMPACT(TM) T26 and T27, the highest-resolution intelligent cameras available in the machine vision industry. The T26 and T27 are the latest additions to the IMPACT T-series, the industry's first intelligent cameras with full-scale vision image processing capabilities built into the camera, delivering a cost-effective alternative with all the features of a high-end vision inspection system.
"Both cameras are designed to give manufacturers greater accuracy and improved defect detection, compared to standard resolution vision systems," said Joe Christenson, President of PPT VISION, Inc. "The IMPACT T26 incorporates a 1280 X 1024 CMOS high resolution imager that provides an economical machine vision solution with all the features of a full-scale high-resolution system. The IMPACT T27 is the industry's highest resolution intelligent camera. With a 1600 X 1200 CCD imager, it's ideal for the most accurate and repeatable defect detection even at high production speeds," added Christenson.
In 2004, PPT introduced the IMPACT T-series intelligent camera family, the industry's first intelligent camera with all the features of a full scale-vision system. Early intelligent cameras did not have the image processing horsepower or feature set of full-scale vision systems and therefore could only be used for simple applications. With its broad family of product offerings, including high-resolution cameras, color cameras, micro-head models, and high performance software, IMPACT T-series family offers a cost effective solution for the toughest machine vision applications.
Each member of the IMPACT T-series family contains a high performance microprocessor and real-time operating system, plus a digital imaging sensor. The electronic components are contained into a sealed industrial unit which can be installed directly into assembly lines and manufacturing equipment. A broad array of discrete, serial, and Ethernet I/O make the IMPACT T-series compatible with a full spectrum of industrial control equipment and instrumentation.
Both of these new products are fully supported by PPT VISION's Inspection Builder software. Inspection Builder is a complete machine-vision application developers package using icon-based programming plus a broad range of inspection algorithms including pattern matching, blob analysis, sub-pixel gauging, character inspection and much more.
PPT VISION is offering a free tutorial on the use and benefits of smart cameras and machine vision software and On-line virtual demonstrations of the IMPACT Inspection Builder software are available at www.pptvision.com.
