IDentify and Report

BOA IDR includes a version of iNspect Express that has been streamlined for identification and tracking applications. It provides tools for reading barcodes, 2D matrix codes and characters, as well as pattern verification. BOA IDR allows manufacturers to combine these core tools to ensure that all product markings are correct when they leave the factory floor.

BOA IDR offers all of the integration capabilities that are available in BOA INS. This includes discrete I/O, RS-232 and Ethernet supported protocols such as Ethernet/IP, Modbus and ProfiNet. In addition, BOA IDR supports scripting capabilities for advanced integration needs.

Embedded Application Software Simplifies Vision Deployment

BOA IDR comes complete with application software to satisfy a wide variety of inspection tasks. General features of BOA IDR software include:

Simple Web-based Operator GUI
  • Web browser access
  • No setup software to install
  • Intuitive one-click guided navigation
  • Full complement of vision capabilities
  • Choice of factory communications
  • Runtime editing
  • Image and data logging
  • Custom Scripting
  • User administration
  • Language support
  • PC emulation

BOA application setup does not assume programming or machine vision knowledge.
