iNspect is a machine vision software application that runs on a Teledyne DALSA Vision Appliance or a Windows based PC.
It automatically inspects images taken from cameras for the purpose of detecting product defects during the manufacturing process.
All types of online or offline manufacturing or production operations that require verification for quality control. iNspect offers a general set of common tools that can be applied across a diverse range of industries from Automotive to Pharmaceutical.
Presence/absence of features, part alignment, part measuring, package and content inspection, bead inspection, surface inspection (looking for scratches, stains or irregular features), ID verification (barcode and 2D), character reading, label inspection, color verification etc.
iNspect is built on a simple interface framework, with wizard-like capabilities, that guide users through the setup process. All of the complexity normally associated with vision algorithms has been carefully abstracted in favor of more logical and intuitive control.
iNspect can interface and process data from up to 8 cameras. These cameras can be configured for synchronous (all triggering at the same time) or asynchronous (each camera triggers independently) operation. Support for multiple cameras significantly reduces the deployment cost per camera.
Analog, Firewire or GigE cameras are supported by iNspect. Analog cameras are only supported by the Vision Appliance hardware, whereas Firewire and GigE (Teledyne DALSA Genie cameras) are also supported for PC configurations.
GigE stands for Gigabit Ethernet. These cameras are relatively new technology that use 1000BaseT Ethernet for transporting images to the vision controller. The major advantages of this technology are distance (up to 100 meters) between camera and controller and the ability to use commodity switches to build larger system configurations.
iNspect can supports in excess of 1,000 solutions. These solutions can be dynamically switched via I/O (in the case of a Vision Appliance) or network commands. Solutions can also be switched using the iNspect GUI.
Depending on the hardware platform being used, iNspect is accessed either through a network as a web application or locally via a desktop interface.
No problem! Our web browser interface enables you to check the status of your production line whether it is a few feet or half a world away.
Our evolving technology has been used to service manufacturers for over 20 years. Teledyne DALSA is a worldwide leader in developing and manufacturing machine vision components and systems for industrial deployment.
Not necessarily. Many manufacturers are already using PLCs for process control, so it's natural to interface the vision components with them. Other manufacturers only need to perform point inspections and for these tasks a PLC is not usually required.
iNspect supports several common protocols such as Modbus and Ethernet/IP, as well as direct support for many PLCs. Teledyne DALSA is also a Rockwell Automation Encompass partner.
To make setup and debug easier, iNspect records information (images + results) on recent passed, failed and reworked parts; It also allows users to store images that can be run on the offline emulator. This is very useful for fine tuning the application without disrupting the online process..
