Microscan Wins Prestigious Industry Award for Its AutoVISION™ Suite at the 2012 IPC APEX Expo
Microscan Systems, Inc. Posted 02/29/2012
Electronics manufacturers rely on machine vision to ensure accurate board assembly and achieve “cradle-to-grave” traceability. Microscan’s AutoVISION™ software was developed to simplify the setup and deployment of machine vision applications, while providing a powerful tool set for reliable, high performance inspection and identification. Real time feedback during programming and device configuration helps time-crunched engineers implement their vision applications with a minimum of effort. The AutoVISION™ tool set includes decoding capability for all standard 1D and 2D barcode reading, along with fixed font and fully teachable OCR. For inspection and control applications, AutoVISION™ includes Locate, Measure, and Count and Detect tools. AutoVISION™ is available in Microscan’s Vision MINI and Vision HAWK hardware platforms.
The newly updated AutoVISION™ 1.1 software includes several feature enhancements, including faster OCR and Locate Tools as well as a web-based HMI terminal window. The scalable platform can now be migrated to PC-based cameras such as GigE, allowing users to set up jobs in AutoVISION™ and later transfer them to a PC-based solution. In addition, the new AutoVISION™ release includes usability improvements to its OCR library, support for 64-bit Windows 7, and serial match code input via serial port or Ethernet.
Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
