Machine Vision Software for Smart Cameras



Microscan offers the latest version of its simplified AutoVISION Machine Vision Software to support new MicroHAWK Smart Cameras.

Featuring an intuitive user interface for basic to mid-range applications, AutoVISION Machine Vision Software is designed to allow any user - regardless of experience level - to implement practical machine vision jobs for item tracking, traceability, defect detection, automated guidance operations and monitoring.

Inspection jobs are set up using step-by-step controls in the interface that guide users to connect to a camera, capture an image, add tools and run the applied inspections. Graphical drag-and-drop machine vision tools allow users to add inspections to a saved image or live image feed from a connected camera to see real-time results and understand how a particular tool will affect the inspection output.

AutoVISION tools range from the Decode Tool (decode any linear or 2-D symbol to identify, log, track and trace products) to the Measure Tool (ensure accurate parts and assemblies as well as enable guidance operations) to Optical Character Recognition and Verification tools. The software is scalable and backward-compatible with Microscan's advanced Visionscape Machine Vision Software for access to programmer-level machine vision settings, enabling users to migrate jobs from one software environment to another on a single vision system. This allows users to meet changing demands without increasing time or cost to implement new capability.

With the release of new AutoVISION 4.0 software, Microscan adds more powerful features to Microscan's machine vision technology portfolio. AutoVISION 4.0 offers exclusive support for new MicroHAWK MV Smart Cameras and an expanded toolset for additional inspection capability in AutoVISION's same user-friendly graphical UI. To its toolset, AutoVISION 4.0 adds a Circle Measure Tool for measuring the radius of a circle when inspecting features such as drill holes and apertures. New Color tools have also been added for detecting, identifying and matching colored objects such as test tube caps, PCB components or features in automotive dashboard displays. All measurements in AutoVISION 4.0 are now available in real-world units such as millimeters and inches for intuitive application by human operators. In addition, AutoVISION 4.0 adds a setting for FTP image output, enabling users to store pass/fail images taken by the connected camera to a local file location for documentation and audit purposes.

AutoVISION 4.0 continues to be fully scalable to Microscan's comprehensive machine vision software, Visionscape (now Visionscape 8.0), for advanced inspection tasks and custom machine vision programming. Optionally, an AutoVISION Sensor interface is also available for inspection applications not requiring Microscan's Decode and Barcode Verification capability offered in the full AutoVISION Machine Vision Software, providing a cost-effective software solution when barcodes are not a factor in inspection applications. When barcode tools are desired, however, full AutoVISION 4.0 software comes standard with Microscan's X-Mode 4.0 technology, which includes advanced image processing and decode algorithms for reading challenging symbols, including damaged codes and direct part marks.

With the release of AutoVISION 4.0, Microscan's latest high-performance MicroHAWK imaging platform is now configurable for machine vision applications, with a new line of MicroHAWK MV Smart Cameras released and available for order. In three compact models (MicroHAWK MV-20, MV-30 and MV-40), each MicroHAWK camera features selectable options for sensor (WVGA, SXGA or QSXGA), lens (standard and high-density) and integrated lighting (red or white internal and add-on LEDs). AutoVISION 4.0 also supports the integrated liquid lens autofocus capability of the new MicroHAWK MV-30 and MV-40 models for inspecting parts at various positions, distances or sizes. Industrial high-speed Ethernet/IP and PROFINET communication is supported in applications utilizing the MV-40 model, and the new advanced communication capabilities of AutoVISION 4.0 allow MicroHAWK cameras and PCs to exchange data across different subnets, enabling users to connect to MicroHAWK cameras from anywhere in a factory or connect a camera from a local factory to a satellite facility. AutoVISION 4.0 is supported on Windows 7 (32- and 64-bit) and Windows 10 operating systems.
