The fifth release features a more image-centric approach to project configuration, whereby measurements are set up directly on the image itself, rather than through configuration panes. It also streamlines flowchart creation by allowing the logic for specific events and actions to be placed in separate sub-flowcharts, decluttering the main flowchart. A new ready-to-go communication structure simplifies the interface between the vision system and a programmable logic/automation controller. The new version adds support for persistent recipes, which makes it possible to create a single flowchart for inspecting similar part types that can be modified or added to by the vision system designer and an operator. A project specific operator interface can now be accessed from any HTML5-based web browser, enabling greater access, not just from PCs, but also from tablets or smart phones as well. The new version also integrates the company’s SureDotOCR technology for reading challenging dot-matrix text as produced in practice by industrial inkjet printers. This new flowchart step handles distorted and rotated text, on uneven backgrounds and under non-uniform illumination. Development is done on a PC running 64-bit Windows. The software will be made available in Q4 2016 through the software’s update service to registered users with maintenance subscriptions in good standing.
