VisionPro expands image acquisition options
November 17, 2009 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Cognex Corp. has released VisionPro 6.0, which expands image acquisition options with support for very large camera images and nontraditional sources such as 3D, thermal and X-ray imagers. It also offers high-accuracy calibration and image correction for line scan cameras, and expanded ID reading capability of 2D codes.
The image acquisition system in VisionPro 6.0 has been enhanced to support images up to 16 bits in depth, which enables use of nontraditional acquisition sources such as 3D profilers, thermal cameras and X-ray imagers. Built-in compatibility with selected thermal cameras and 3D profile scanners ensures rapid integration with VisionPro. It supports Microsoft 64-bit operating systems, to meet the demands of larger cameras and greater pixel depth. VisionPro’s framework enables users to switch seamlessly between 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems.
