Visionscape® Smart Camera Wins Global Technology Award

Nov 19, 2009

RENTON, WA, November 2009 — Microscan, a global technology leader for precision data acquisition and control solutions, announces that it has been awarded a Global Technology Award in the category of Test Equipment and Services for its Visionscape® Smart Camera (formerly HawkEye 1600T). The award was presented during a ceremony that took place on Tuesday, November 10, 2009 at the New Munich Trade Fair Center in Munich, Germany.

The Visionscape® Smart Camera combines a compact form factor with the broad applicability, versatility and proven performance of machine vision software. Designed for use in a wide range of applications, the Visionscape® Smart Camera provides a cost-effective, easily deployed solution for manufacturers to monitor quality, control processes, or identify and trace parts on production lines.

The innovative Visionscape® Smart Camera is a flexible solution that can be used for PCB quality inspection, device metrology inspection, and full traceability. The advanced technology used in this system includes high-end machine vision algorithms and state-of-the-art high-speed multi-core dual processor smart camera technology. This fast, powerful system is not only simple and easy to use, program and operate, but it is totally transportable across a wide variety of applications throughout the factory—all at a fraction of the cost of traditional AOI solutions.

As a further contribution to quality and process control, Visioncape® Smart Camera inspection systems stand alone in their support of track, trace, and control processes with full blown Optical Character Recognition (OCR), Optical Character Verification (OCV), and full reading of any barcodes or 2D symbols including the most difficult Direct Part Marks (DPM).

Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology 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.
