WATERLOO, ONTARIO – April 12, 2010 - DALSA Corporation [TSX: DSA] was recently honored in an awards ceremony hosted by the editors of Test & Measurement World magazine when the company’s BOA Vision System received the 2010 "Best in Test" award in the Machine Vision and Inspection category. The BOA Vision System is a highly integrated smart camera with all of the elements of an industrial machine vision system. BOA is easy to use and flexible and offers advanced vision capabilities that are easy to integrate at an affordable price, while consuming very little space and power.
The Best in Test awards are presented annually by the editors of Test & Measurement World to honor important and innovative new products and services in the electronics test and measurement industry. Test & Measurement World announced the finalists for the 2010 awards in its December/January issue, and the winner of each category was then selected by a vote of readers and editors. The Best in Test award winners were announced on April 1, followed by an awards ceremony earlier this week.
“BOA has set a new industry benchmark for smart cameras,” states Steve Geraghty, director of DALSA’s Industrial Products group. “We are honored that Test & Measurement World has chosen to acknowledge the BOA smart camera with their Best in Test award. Since the BOA was introduced last October, it has gained significant traction in the industry and has achieved several design wins for interesting machine vision applications.”
DALSA's new BOA smart camera has generated a lot of keen interest," says Simon-Julien Elie, Machine Vision Engineer at Rotalec in Montreal, Canada. "With its compact size, on-board processing, and versatile, easy-to-use application software, BOA is quickly proving itself a very competitive option to the larger more cumbersome smart camera platforms available today."
DALSA has recently launched a color model for the BOA family, and is planning to add high resolution models as well. For a downloadable image of the BOA vision system, please visit our online media kit, and to see the BOA smart camera in action, view our video demonstration.
