PPT Vision has launched high-resolution M-390 smart cameras, designed to deliver greater accuracy for high-precision machine-vision applications.

The M-390 cameras can be used as part of PPT Vision’s Impact M-series embedded vision system – a single system with four independently operating cameras running distinct inspection, guidance or identification programs.

The Impact M-series system’s design allows operators to mix and match camera resolutions for all points of inspection, providing the flexibility to deploy cameras that are specifically suited to each of the separate inspection requirements.

With 16 times the resolution of VGA (640 x 480) vision cameras, the Impact M-390 smart cameras are said to be suitable for inspections that require higher precision.

Increasing the vision system’s performance capabilities, the addition of four independent smart cameras allows the M-series system to work well in differentiating parts, locating defects and precisely gauging features on four sides of a part.

Equipped with an optional right-angle view, the compact M-390 smart camera features increased mounting possibilities in space-constrained locations.

The M-series provides good machine-vision configuration and integration for factory automation applications, according to Bob Heller, chief executive officer at PPT Vision.

The M-series embedded vision system allows users to perform up to four inspections utilising a single vision processor.

This eliminates the need to purchase costly separate inspection/guidance programs and reduces set-up and networking time.

Utilising PPT Vision’s universal Impact software, the M40 processor works with the Microsoft Windows XP operating system to transmit data and images and networking directly to databases, Scada systems and other business system software.

It provides a machine-vision solution for manufacturing industries that require more than one inspection, including electronics, pharmaceutical, medical devices, consumer products and automotive.
