PPT Vision introduces twenty-six new Impact M-Series color
cameras with dedicated color Impact software tools for sorting, monitoring, and
identifying color objects. The Impact M-Series Embedded Vision System is 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. Color Impact
M-Series cameras can be used to detect food spoilage and determine the fat
content in meat. Other applications solved with PPT IMPACT color vision tools
include sorting and identifying pharmaceutical tablets, detecting wire
placement and components in electronic products, and many additional
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.
