Expandable Vision Controller

Matrox® Imaging (Montreal, Quebec) announced the release of the Matrox 4Sight XV6, an expandable vision controller designed to handle intensive vision applications on the factory floor, including warehouses, plants, and manufacturing or fabrication facilities. Powered by an eighth-generation Intel® Core™ processor, the Matrox 4Sight XV6 is capable of supporting intensive machine vision applications.

The new vision controllers include support for up to three displays, whether VGA, DVI-D, HDMI, and/or DisplayPort. Made to address the multitude of camera interface standards, Matrox 4Sight XV6 features four full-height, half-length expansion slots for accepting frame grabber PCIe® cards operating at full performance. They also pair readily with Matrox Imaging frame grabbers to deliver customized video capture solutions for Camera Link®, CoaXPress®, GigE Vision® with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) support, Display Port, HDMI, and SDI interfaces.

Packaging Inspection Bundle

BitFlow (Woburn, MA) has partnered with engineering firm One Box Vision to develop the PackFlow 100% print inspection bundle for inspecting materials printed on high-speed web presses. The PackFlow bundle features all the key components needed for a print machine manufacturer or system integrator to assemble a state-of-the-art vision system: line-scan cameras, BitFlow Axion-CL 2xE frame grabbers, software and LED illuminator.

Contributing to PackFlow’s success is the BitFlow Axion-CL 2xE frame grabber based on the Camera Link (CL) 2.0 specification. The BitFlow Axion-CL is the most powerful CL frame grabber BitFlow has ever manufactured, featuring a StreamSync Direct Memory Access (DMA) engine and buffer manager to prevent overloading of the CPU with image transfer operations, along with a PCIe Gen 2 expansion bus to deliver highspeed access to host memory. It supports Base, Medium, Full or 80-Bit mode Camera Link area and line scan, color and monochrome cameras with PoCL capabilities.

Optics Manufacturing Software

Zemax (Kirkland, WA) recently announced OpticsViewer™, a software solution for companies using OpticStudio® that helps improve optical product manufacturing. OpticsViewer empowers manufacturing engineers and engineering managers to easily view and validate native OpticStudio design files to ensure optical systems meet manufacturing requirements.

OpticsViewer enables optical engineers to safely share a common file to non-optical engineers. By establishing a common language across the optical design workflow, engineers don’t need to rely on assumptions, nor engage in tedious back-and-forth that can result in inaccurate or incomplete data. With OpticsViewer, non-optical engineers are given access to the complete optical design information resulting in more meaningful conversations and ultimately better decisions.
