Machine Vision Software

PPT VISION, Bloomington, MN, has released IMPACTTM 8.5 software for machine vision applications. It reads 17 different standard barcode types, including ECC 200 DataMatrix 2D, UPC-A and UPC-E, and Pharmacode. The software is able to combine the decoded information with optical character recognition and detailed inspection routines. It includes CPM (control panel manager) and customizable HMI (human machine interface) control software. Cameras can output decoded data from barcodes or optical character recognition through serial or Ethernet ports.

High-Resolution Thermal Imager

L-3 Infrared Products (Dallas, TX) has launched the first commercially available high-resolution Thermal-Eye Series 17-640 thermal imager. The 17-640 features a high-performance amorphous silicon uncooled IR sensor with a fast response time and advanced imaging processing. Its reduced size also increases flexibility; optics can be smaller and lighter and still achieve the same range performance as a 25 μm offering.

Keyence IM-6000 Series

Keyence Corporation of America, Woodcliff Lake, NJ, has introduced the IM-6000 Series dimension measurement and inspection system that features pattern registration and pattern search functions for “place and press” measurement. The system eliminates the need for optical comparators, x-y stages for part positioning, CNC measuring devices, and stereo microscopes. Parts to be measured are placed on the sample tray and the measurement button is pushed. An Intelligent Pattern Analysis Search System (PASS) automatically locates, identifies, and measures parts placed anywhere within the unit’s 100-mm field of view. A Part Evaluation Library stores the images, measurement functions, and specifications of parts, and provides automatic pattern search, part recognition, and measurement without setup the next time inspection of the same parts is required. It performs up to 99 distinct measurements with one press of a button, and measures features such as angle, radius, inner/outer diameter, and circular and linear pitch. Image processing uses functions such as least square fitting and abnormal data point removal.

2009 PTB Products of the Year

Nextreme has integrated its OptoCooler UPF4 thermoelectric cooler into Voxtel’s VDHAX line of hermetically-packaged avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers. The OptoCooler-equipped APD device will be used for applications in military laser radar and optical communications and commercial telecommunications. APDs can multiply the signal produced by incident light by as much as 100 million times, enabling photon detection at very low light levels. The APD device delivers more than 45°C of cooling during operation. The UPF4 removes a maximum of 610mW of heat at 85°C ambient in an active footprint of 0.55mm2.
