PRESS RELEASE: Teledyne DALSA Launches BOA Pro for Industrial Inspection Applications

WATERLOO, Ontario - October 20, 2011 - Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and a global leader in machine vision technology, will launch its new BOAPro smart camera at Vision China 2011 (booth A028) from October 26-28, at the China International Exhibition Center in Beijing, China. The BOA Pro combines the robustness of Teledyne DALSA's highly integrated BOA smart camera with the flexibility of Teledyne DALSA's advanced Sherlock inspection software, resulting in a compact industrial vision solution with diverse applicability across all manufacturing industries.

"Sherlock's wide-ranging capabilities allow users to standardize on a machine vision software interface that can satisfy their current and future inspection needs," said Steve Geraghty, Director of Teledyne DALSA Industrial Products. "Embedding Sherlock inside our BOA smart camera offers a single-point solution with uncompromised design flexibility and integration resources."

BOA Pro applications are configured through a web browser via a standard Ethernet interface. During development, images from the camera are fed directly to the Sherlock GUI and commands from the program are executed directly on the camera. This methodology optimizes the user design experience while providing an accurate representation of runtime performance. A secondary interface is available through a standard web browser for device setup, runtime monitoring, and firmware updating. At runtime, BOA Pro runs autonomously and can be disconnected from the PC.
