Subsidized Starter Kits for mvBlueGEMINI Smart Camera

Subsidized Starter Kits for mvBlueGEMINI Smart Camera

Following the introduction of the mvBlueGEMINI smart camera twinned with its intuitive and flexible mvIMPACT-CS software package MATRIX VISION has now added a starter kit to help new users take their first steps in smart camera machine vision. At the heart of the starter kit, which will be exhibited at the Manufacturing Exhibition Citywest on the 31st January, is the mvBlueGEMINI camera itself which comes preloaded with the mvIMPACT-CS application software. No additional software installation is needed; the camera is accessed using a web browser, such as Chrome or Firefox, typically from a PC or laptop. This interface allows customers to set up for many common quality inspection and data tasks including part present/absent, 1D and 2D code reading plus OCR text reading and verification.

 

Also included in the starter kit is a C-Mount lens suitable for the camera’s 1.3 megapixel sensor along with a diffuse white ring light which fits around the lens using the integral thread and can be triggered by the camera each time it captures an image. Further, the starter kit has a power supply and cables to connect the camera plus a useful workshop I/O box. This can be used to easily connect the camera’s inputs and outputs onto local terminal strips with LED indicator lights. It also features an adjustable pulse generator which can be used to provide an external trigger signal to initiate image capture in the mvBlueGEMINI camera. Finally a mounting bracket plus adjustable clamp allow a quick installation on the office desk or workshop, or even provide a temporary installation in the manufacturing environment. All this is presented in a sturdy carry case.

 

The mvBlueGEMINI smart camera features a high resolution images 1.3 megapixel image sensor. The 1280 x 1024 format offers 4 times as many pixels as most currently available smart cameras allowing optimum field of view and excellent image resolution for each installation. The mvIMPACT-CS software package offers a wizard driven web interface for set up and monitoring. This combines and distills powerful image processing algorithms from HALCON’s huge suite into simple commands such as “Find Object”, “Read Code” or “Read Text”.  This greatly simplifies the majority of set ups saving time and allows user’s with only limited experience to create effective inspection and label checking programs.

 

To celebrate the launch of the mvBlueGEMINI smart camera family this starter kit is being offered at a substantially subsidized price. Please note that purchase is limited to one starter kit per customer.
