PPT Vision, represented in Australia by Total Turnkey Solutions , has introduced the Impact T23, an intelligent camera capable of acquiring and analysing colour images in real time for inspection of manufactured parts.
It performs complex colour inspections by rejecting products which fall outside of a preset colour range. It can also be used for colour-based sorting, colour code verification, and paint defect detection.
It uses inspection builder, PPT Vision’s single-software platform that supports the entire Impact family of products. The software is a general-purpose platform which has been successfully deployed in virtually every industrial category. Inspection Builder now contains powerful color image processing algorithms in combination with a broad range of gray scale algorithms, which allows the T23 to be used for color and grayscale image analysis simultaneously.
Colour image processing requires significant power, so the Impact T23 was designed with a high-speed microprocessor, real-time operating systems and a high performance digital colour imaging sensor. A broad range of discrete, serial, and Ethernet I/O make the Impact T-series compatible with a full spectrum of industrial control equipment and instrumentation, and provides easier, trouble-free integration.
