In-sight vision systems

A new version of In-Sight Explorer 4.5 expands the capabilities of In-Sight vision systems. The inspection tools now include an edge and surface inspection tool, bead width and position tool, and an ID tool that reads multiple codes at one time, allowing In-Sight cameras to read bar codes and provide inspections simultaneously.

The flexible-flaw detection (FFD) edge and surface tool works for color and grayscale applications and can inspect for boundary defects, such as conformity of shape, and surface defects like stains and scratches. FFD can also be used for print inspections and lets users select accuracy versus speed requirements and ignore defects during system run time.

Also included:
• Two new EasyBuilder user interface tools— Bead Finder and Bead Tracker — which find positional defects and width-based defects and gaps. They provide all bead data needed for process control.
• ReadIDMax is based on ID algorithms 1DMax and 2DMax for 1-D bar-code and 2-D matrix-code reading. It can read up to128 codes at one time, regardless of where the code is in the field of view.
