Vision System utilizes Colour Scale technology.

Press Release Summary:

Not requiring conventional stage or encoders, VµMaster manual 2D vision system features floating high resolution mega-pixel measuring camera whose position is determined by second camera moving in unison, reading X,Y scale. System offers 7.5 micron measurement anywhere within 16 x 12 in. measuring range and uses video edge detection to calculate standard geometric features. Device measures 25 x 30 x 26½ in., and is supplied with integrated PC and 19 in. LCD monitor.

Original Press Release:

Flexbar Machine Corp. Is Proud to Introduce The VµMaster, a Revolutionary New Video Product to the US Market.

The VµMaster is a manual 2D vision system with a massive difference.

Due to a newly patented "COLOUR SCALE" technology, the VµMaster does not have a conventional stage or encoders, just a floating high resolution mega-pixel measuring camera that is able to move anywhere in the measuring range. The position of the measuring camera is cleverly determined by a second camera moving in unison and reading the patented X,Y scale. This enables the VµMaster to offer high accuracy measurement (7.5 microns) anywhere in the 16" (400mm) x 12" (300mm) X, Y measuring range without the need for conventional high precision (high cost) mechanics.

The measuring system operates on a Windows XP platform and is based on Baty's widely used 'Fusion' software. Standard geometric features are calculated from data collected using Video Edge Detection. Other features include a new comprehensive suite of video tools with 'live' edge detection adjustment and digital zooming / panning. The programmable ring light consists of high density white LEDs which can be controlled individually. Conventional measurement of 2D features can be combined with free-form profile scanning which can be overlaid onto CAD files. The results are displayed graphically and a dimensioned component drawing can be produced instantly.

All these features are normally associated with high-end Vision systems but are available as standard with the VµMaster.

The compact sized (25" x 30" x 261/2") fully inclusive system is supplied with a ruggedized integrated PC, 19" LCD monitor and is offered at a lower price than conventional large stage PC based video systems!
