Engineered for new users of automation technology, the Microscan AutoVISION 3.0 machine vision suite includes a simplified intuitive software interface. The Vision MINI and Vision HAWK smart cameras provide plug-and-play capability. A guided 3-step job setup in the software enables users to create inspection jobs by linking a camera, acquiring an image and dragging tools onto an image to see real-time inspection results. The CloudLink web-based HMI allows users to visualize inspection results from any device with a browser, including smartphones and tablets. The suite automates a range of applications such as barcode reading, quality verification, reading text, measuring and defect detection.
