DVT Receives Control Design Magazines "Readers Choice Award"
Oct 30, 2001-THE Vision East (Boston, MA). The readers of Control Design magazine have spoken. They've selected DVT's SmartImage Sensors as the best machine vision systems for the industrial machine builder community.
A few months ago, Control Design sent survey forms to 5,000 subscribers who have the authority to specify, recommend, or buy the industrial automation and control products that are embedded on their machines. Control Design didn't even include a list of vendors to choose from. They just provided about 45 hardware and software categories and asked the participants to write in the one best company for the products he or she had experience with. This method, called unaided research, is considered to be the most accurate survey method there is. By as overwhelming majority, receiving more than double the votes of two leading competitors, DVT was named the preferred supplier of machine vision systems.
The results were: 1. DVT 29% 2.(tie) Cognex 13% Keyence 13%
"This award reaffirms DVT's position as the de facto standard in machine vision," said Robert Steinke, CEO of DVT. "Over ten years ago, DVT took traditional machine vision, slashed the price and invented the smart camera. Now, we are enabling our OEM customers even more flexibility by adding color, 1280 x 1024 resolutions, and ultra-high speeds to our SmartImage Sensors," he adds.
Control Design is the only publication exclusively dedicated to the automation, control and instrumentation needs of industrial original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). For more information visit their website at www.controldesignmag.com
