Ready-to-use Image Processing – Engineered in Germany
Do not waste your time to evaluate, test and validate any general computers for your vision application – take a direct look at the VisionBox AGE-X: it was invented only for machine vision.
The robust image processing computer features all ports on the front, for an easy communication with GigE, Camera Link and USB3.0 cameras and peripheral equipment. The integrated real-time controller operates LED power, camera-trigger and digital I/Os, while the x86 processes the images.
MVTec MERLIC 2.0
While most common machine vision programs require extensive programming knowledge, MERLIC was created to build a machine vision application without programming a single code line. So instead of coding line for line, you can simply step through your application and rely on the various standard machine vision tools. The vision tools in the MV App are connected automatically, if it doesn´t work, you can simply reconnect with drag & drop.
A wonderful new approach from the leading manufacturer of the machine vision library HALCON – but what about the hardware?
With your VisionBox set “Ready for MERLIC”, you are able…
- to directly connect GigE, Camera Link or USB cameras supported by MERLIC
- to connect sensors and generate intelligent trigger pulses via the Real Time
- to connect the trigger signal coming from the Real Time Communication Controller
- to operate typical LED illumination units precisely adjusted by the integrated
LED controller in strobe or continuous mode without separate power supply
- to use a fieldbus interface for the machine communication (optional)
…we provide more than two dozen types of VisionBoxes and additional OEM versions. Don´t hesitate to take a look at our range of different products and please feel free to use the VisionBox Finder
Why Use a VisionBox?
- It saves time. Market analysis, evaluation of functions, trigger,
timing, camera timing, etc. start on a much higher level.
- There are less risks. The details are important. And if an error occurs,
you have a partner who can answer questions and who understands
machine vision behavior.
- Security with different types: Evaluate the world market of embedded
devices for machine vision – without fan! Who has an extensive
platform? Who integrates all relevant interfaces? Imago is the world
market leader in machine vision product variety.
- The price-performance ratio is very good. We are not the cheapest
one, because in the end, cheap means a higher risk of failure. Prevent
breaking out in sweat only because components were low-grade.
- It means having a happy boss and a satisfied customer. By being
faster in R&D and providing a more reliable app, you will receive
respect and acknowledgement from your boss and/or your customer.
Image-Centered User Interface
The very clear and reduced interface presents a large view of the processed image in the center of the program. The tool library on the left side provides many standard vision tools such as acquisition, calibration, alignment, measuring, counting, checking, reading, locating, and defect detection. It can also be extended with customized, user-defined tools. Each tool has its own graphical representation in the workspace, which allows you to see every step of your vision application when scrolling the workspace. The image centered design allows you to configure the application directly via the image without needing to write source codes or to adjust a lot of parameters.
An outstanding innovative and unique feature in MERLIC is the “easyTouch” concept. It helps to guide the user interactively towards the solution. For example, simply hover the mouse pointer over an image and “easyTouch” recognizes it and marks objects to be identified. You can choose relevant objects with just a single click. Thus, you don’t have to configure complex parameters. In addition, some tools support “easyTouch+”, with which you can select multiple objects (by holding the ctrl-key) to configure parameters even better for your purpose. “easyTouch” saves you a lot of time during development.
Machine Vision Application Without Programming
While most common machine vision programs require extensive programming knowledge, MERLIC was created to build a machine vision application without programming a single line of code. So instead of coding line by line, you can simply step through your application and rely on the many standard machine vision tools. The vision tools in the MVApp are connected automatically, if not, you can simply reconnect with drag & drop.
