BitFlow Supports 3rd Party Software for Developing, Deploying and Maintaining Vision Applications

BitFlow drivers now support the very latest versions of all major vision software packages, resulting in faster application development and lower lifecycle costs.

WOBURN, MA, OCTOBER 8, 2015 -- BitFlow, the world's leading innovator of frame grabbers for machine vision and medical imaging, is helping vision engineers build more robust applications that take full advantage of the graphical capabilities of NI LabVIEW, Cognex Vision Pro, MVTec Halcon and other third party software by maintaining its extensive and current library of software drivers. BitFlow drivers now support the very latest versions of all major vision software packages, resulting in faster application development and lower lifecycle costs.

Optimized for ease of use, fast acquisition, and minimal CPU usage, BitFlow drivers deliver images to third-party applications in real-time. They are also fully compatible with all current BitFlow frame grabber models, including the newest Axion-CL and all the Cyton CXP family. This means that deployments of BitFlow frame grabbers require only a single driver for any given application regardless of which BitFlow frame grabbers are used.

"Our drivers are simple to implement and ensure rapid time to deployment of BitFlow frame grabbers so new customers can begin realizing their benefits with their existing software package in minutes instead of days or weeks," said Donal Waide, Director of Sales and Marketing for BitFlow, Inc. "In addition, the drivers allow BitFlow customers to quickly and non-disruptively upgrade third-party software with zero downtime. For customers with older versions of their software, we offer a compatible package as we have been supporting these 3rd party applications for several years now."

BitFlow drivers have been evaluated to avoid incompatibility and similar performance issues that can impact development time and sourcing complexity. Drivers are available for packages from: A&B Software, Adaptive Vision, AQSENSE, Cognex, Mathworks, Media Cybernetics, MVTec, National Instruments, NorPix, OpenCV, Stemmer and IO Industries.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
