JULY 17, 2009--Impact 8.3 pairs with smart camera technology to provide usability and inspection capabilities for machine-vision tasks. The new API works with the Microsoft ActiveX platform, allowing Impact data to be seamlessly embedded in local machine and/or factory control systems. Setup tools assist users in creating a vision inspection, guiding them through common vision tasks and reducing learning curves. Impact Vision Program Manager (VPM) now offers more than 120 tools including code reading, pattern find, blob analysis, circle gauge, line find, and sub-pixel gauging. Impact Control Panel Manager (CPM) includes more than 60 fully configurable controls.

PRESS RELEASE

PPT VISION IMPACT 8.3 VISION SOFTWARE PROVIDES INCREASED FUNCTIONALITY FOR MACHINE VISION APPLICATIONS

Bloomington, MN--June 11, 2009-- PPT VISION, Inc. announces IMPACT Software Suite 8.3, the latest installment of the company's powerful, easy to deploy vision software. IMPACT 8.3 pairs with smart camera technology to provide enhanced usability and inspection capabilities for challenging machine vision applications--in a multitude of new ways.

"PPT delivers high-end machine vision made easy," stated Sean O'Driscoll, Executive Vice President of PPT VISION. "Besides delivering on our mission to make PPT's powerful solutions simpler to use, 8.3 adds significant functionality," O'Driscoll continued. "PPT's new API (application programming interface) works with the Microsoft ActiveX platform, allowing IMPACT data to be seamlessly embedded in local machine and/or factory control systems."

Setup tools in IMPACT 8.3 assist users in creating a vision inspection, guiding them through many common vision tasks and significantly reducing operator learning curves. These tools ensure even users with minimal programming experience can efficiently create powerful, accurate inspection solutions.

Included in the IMPACT Software Suite, which accompanies PPT VISION's exceptional selection of smart cameras, is the IMPACT Vision Program Manager (VPM)--which now offers more than 120 tools including code reading, pattern find, blob analysis, circle gauge, line find, and sub-pixel gauging. These and many other advanced vision tools allow users to create vision programs to suit a broad range of applications. A pre-configured operator runtime display panel is built within VPM so inspection date and pass/fail results are dynamically displayed while the camera inspects.

The IMPACT Control Panel Manager (CPM), also included in the IMPACT suite, now includes more than 60 fully-configurable controls. This means that data, image and controls can easily be configured for the machine operator, with a customized Graphical User Interface (GUI) that mirrors the machine environment with which they are familiar.

Plus, with IMPACT 8.3 software, manufacturers in the health care industry are equipped to comply with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 requirements.

IMPACT Software is currently available in English, Chinese, Japanese and German languages.
