HALCON Embedded Running on VC Smart Cameras

Brings new possibilities to the machine vision market

The machine vision software HALCON was ported by MVTec for cameras from

Vision Components (VC). From now on, HALCON Embedded runs on VC smart
cameras and brings new possibilities to the machine vision market.

HALCON is the comprehensive standard software with IDE for machine vision
and is used worldwide in many industries. HALCONs flexible software
architecture enables fast application development to solve the demands of
industrial and medical imaging.

For optimal integration to the VC smart camera series, MVTec ported the
complete HALCON 11 software library. The development of the application can
be done conveniently on a standard PC. After uploading, the machine vision
application runs on the smart camera and is able to use HALCONs entire
machine vision functionality.

Smart cameras are widely used for quality and process control in industrial
manufacturing lines. Smart cameras from VC provide sufficient computing
power and direct communication interfaces. The combination of robust
hardware from VC and the general-purpose and reliable HALCON software from
MVTec provides a powerful allaround package for modern machine vision.

About HALCON Embedded
HALCON Embedded means HALCON running on a special platform. HALCON is
portable to various microprocessors/DSPs, operating systems, and compilers.
HALCON Embedded lets software developers exploit the power of the
comprehensive machine vision library HALCON by MVTec on embedded systems.
HALCON Embedded enables the development of the software part of a machine
vision application on a standard platform and thereby greatly eases the
programming of an embedded system. Simply stated: Development is done on a
PC, while the application runs on an embedded system.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
