STEMMER IMAGING can now offer the latest release of software, iNspect Express version 1700, for the BOA range of smart cameras from TELEDYNE DALSA. This new release even further enhances BOA’s capabilities for automated inspection and quality assurance applications in a wide range of industries by adding new features, speeding up measurements and making it even easier for users to configure BOA for more demanding applications that would otherwise require more expensive solutions.
The iNspect Express software interface allows users of all experience levels to set up BOA all-in-one intelligent vision systems using a standard web browser with no programming required. Enhanced performance comes from optimised algorithms for 360° search, optical character recognition (OCR) and 2D matrix reading, and improved calibration tools. These optimisations provide greater robustness and over 10 times speed improvement in some applications.
The new release also features a new PC-based application for displaying images and results from multiple BOA cameras on the same screen. This allows operators to monitor production, change job files and review the inspection history of any BOA connected to the local network.
By including improvements to the user interface, iNspect Express 1700 software extends BOA’s use to more difficult applications. The built-in script tool has been enhanced with new functions and a syntax checker, a new string editor has been embedded to simplify integration with third party equipment, and interactive tool management has been implemented to assist users during program development.
Available with a choice of resolution and speeds, the ruggedised BOA smart cameras can be quickly integrated into harsh factory floor environments.
