Smart Imaging Systems For Inspection, Traceability And Code Reading
Stemmer Imaging exhibits in conjunction with O’Mara Automation Ltd. at the MEDTEC Ireland exhibition (Cork Irl 5-6 Oct 2011). On show will be the latest smart cameras and intelligent multi-camera systems from Teledyne DALSA. This impressive range can be used for traditional inspection of medical devices for quality control applications, as well code reading, verification and traceability.
The BOA smart cameras are robust, intelligent vision systems designed for integration into any manufacturing environment. Offering on-board image processing capabilities previously only available on PC-based vision systems, these compact cameras feature software capable of a multitude of inspection tasks, such as positioning, identification, verification, measuring and flaw detection. In addition, the BOA IDR version combines 1D barcode, 2D matrix and character reading and verification with pattern recognition capabilities in a single unit for checking barcodes, ‘best before’ dates, lot numbers and even logos. The software also includes user administration tools to help customers achieve system validation for 21 CFR Part 11.
For multi-camera inspection, GEVA is a powerful, single intelligent controller for multiple cameras which makes use of the popular GigE Vision data transmission standard allowing the cameras to be located up to 100 metres from the controller. On show with Teledyne DALSA’s versatile Genie GigE cameras, GEVA can operate with the same ‘iNspect’ software as the BOA camera allowing single and multiple camera solutions to be developed using a common software platform.
