ProInspect is configurable machine vision system suited to automated inspection, gauging and machine guidance applications. With ProInspect, State of the art image analysis tools are easily combined into an inspection “recipe” for a specific task.
ProInspect is based on industrial standards such as the PC and the MS Windows. Taking full advantage of modern PC technology, it offers outstanding performances: inspection rates in excess of
40 parts per second are possible.
ProInspect is designed by our team of machine vision professionals with more than 15 years of experience in industrial applications.
Superior image analysis technology
ProInspect supports the superior image analysis technology from Cognex Corporation with PatMaxTM and PatInspect. PatMax is a pattern localization and inspection technique that revolutioned the machine vision industry. Many other vision tools, proven in thousands of industrial applications, are available
Flexibility and ease on use
A simple yet powerful point and click interface allows to build sophisticated inspection recipes by combining vision tools and creating relationship between them. For example a set of “calipers” is used to locate edge points of a circular object. An interpolation tool is used to combine the edge points and calculate a best fit circle . The object center is then estimated and the object circularity controlled. Every tool is able to cooperates with others. For example a localization tool could provide a position that is taken into account for adjusting the region of interest of another tool.
A further customization possibility allows to create new vision tools for specific tasks and making them available in ProInspect without releasing a new version.
Strong camera support
ProInspect already supports a wide variety of image sources such as progressive scan cameras, analog and digital megapixel resolution cameras, line scan cameras. New cameras can be easily supported as they become available.
A standard configuration supports 4 cameras to achieve multiple views of an object or else to serve simultaneously multiple inspection stations.
Robust and modular communication
roInspect open and modular communication architecture takes advantage of the wide
variety of communication devices that are available for PC’s: discrete digital I/O, RS232
serial, ethernet, profibus, CANBus are currently supported interfaces.
Other communication devices can be easily supported on a custom basis.
Ready to use solutions are available for several robot controllers. Please consult our
factory for up to date information on currently supported robots.
Accurate camera calibration
ProInspect provides a variety of calibration techniques suited to diverse application
