FFP 2 mask inspection with the EyeVision software

EyeVision image processing software enables medical mouth and nose coverings to be inspected for quality. This enables precise compliance with the desired safety standards by immediately detecting defects and eliminating their causes.
The system is autonomous, fully configured and therefore ready for immediate use. The innovative EyeVision software ensures precise, error-free and fast inspection of the protective masks.
The software uses thermography to check the adhesive points and seals, for example of the rubber pads used to attach the mask to the ears. In addition, the Optical Character Recognition command (OCR command) of the EyeVision software can inspect the printed lettering and number on the masks for accuracy and legibility. At the same time, the attachment of the metal nosepiece is inspected to ensure that it will not damage production line machinery if it is incorrectly attached. EyeVision inspects not only the mask, but also its packaging through thermography. The image processing software can prevent the contamination of the medical product by inspecting the weld of the plastic packaging.

Hand-eye calibration with the EyeVision software

The EyeVision image processing software now enables simple and intuitive hand-eye calibration for robots and handling systems. The expanded command set enables hand-eye calibration of systems in 2D and 3D to be carried out with just a few clicks. A RoboCom command is also available, which includes communication with many robot manufacturers but can also be easily adapted to new robots. Numerous handling systems can also be controlled via this command. The combination of control, image acquisition in 2D or 3D and automatic adaptation means that the hand-eye calibration for the robot eye can be implemented quickly and precisely.

Real-time recognition of pharmacodes and color ring codes

Within the pharmaceutical industry, the documentation and traceability of products is very important and required by law. In addition to OCR codes, barcodes and DMC codes, pharma codes and color ring codes are also used so that products can be clearly identified at any time.

These two codes are either a single or multicolored print similar to a barcode or a code made up of several rings.

The EyeVision software enables the exact recognition of colors and color nuances in real time. The software assigns the recognized codes to a product. This is done very easily, without programming. This evaluation is very easy to implement with the powerful EyeVision color commands. The camera with which the task is to be carried out can be freely selected and the ideally suited camera can be used for the respective task.

Due to the simple integration using various interfaces such as Profinet, Modbus, OPC UA, MQTT, remote control, remote control and the transfer of the results to higher-level systems, such as a database, is possible.

Line scan camera with 6K sensor

The smart cameras of the Jupiter series have been expanded by another line sensor with 6K pixels. This means that even higher resolutions or larger image areas can now be covered.

The Jupiter series is particularly suitable for all tasks involving continuous materials, for example in the fields of strip, plastics, extrusion, but also wood surface analysis. The camera series enables fast and precise inspection of all woven and non-woven materials.

A very advantageous feature is that line applications can be easily and quickly assembled using drag-and-drop. This means that many applications can be realized within 2- 4 hours and thus fast time-to-market solutions can be developed.

All cameras of the Jupiter series are equipped with GigE with PoE, which allows them to be powered directly via the Ethernet connection. A powerful I/O interface offers, in addition to various I/O lines within the 24V technology, incremental encoder inputs to synchronize the image acquisition with the system. A daisy chain input and output also allows several sensors to be lined up, so that even large areas can be scanned without gaps.

The powerful FPGA also allows fast image pre-processing. This pre-processing can be done by the customer with a suitable development tool or by EVT’s specialists.

EyeVision Crosshair Generator

A crosshair application where only a flicker-free overlay is superimposed on the camera image, or a semi-manual measurement system that works similar to a profile projector.

With the EyeVision Crosshair Generator diverse application cases can be solved, because the Crosshair Generator has various options. From a simple cross to further circles and scale strokes, everything can be configured.

In combination with the image analysis functions of the EyeVision software, the Crosshair Generator from EVT enables the realization of semi-automatic as well as fully automatic measurement sequences. The collected results can be transmitted directly to a PLC or host computer via the built-in communication interfaces OPC UA, TCP/IP, MQTT, Profinet, Modbus.


In addition, all camera options of the EyeVision software are available to the user. Thus, the crosshair generator can already be realized very inexpensively, for example on the basis of a Raspberry PI and an 8 megapixel camera.

New laser & camera modules in smart Saturn

The smart 3D sensor Saturn was equipped with new lasers, thus a significantly more homogeneous laser line is possible. The lasers are available in all standard colors red, green, blue, violet. Depending on the object to be imaged, the right laser color can produce a significantly better artifact-free image.

The lasers are also available in different power levels from 0.5W to 10W, so that sufficient light output is available for all applications.

This is advantageous and necessary because, depending on the application, greater laser power must be used, an example of which is tires. On their rubber, a large part of the light power is eliminated due to the absorption of the surface. Therefore, more light must be used.

But even at high speeds, more light must be applied to the test object so that the laser line can be detected despite the short exposure time.

With the new lasers, new camera modules with faster sensors are also available. This increases the maximum frame rate and thus 3D lines per second from the previous 3 KHz to 9 KHz.
