Andor Technology (Belfast, UK), a manufacturer of scientific imaging, spectroscopy solutions, and microscopy systems, has joined the Image Acquisition Partner Program from MVTec Software (Munich, Germany). This follows the compilation of an image acquisition interface between Andor’s low-noise cameras and MVTec’s image processing library HALCON.
The HALCON-Andor interface allows the configuration of and data acquisition from Andor’s iKon-M and Luca-R cameras using a camera abstraction layer provided by the HALCON library. The interface is available for HALCON 8.0 and 9.0 as well as all upcoming software releases.
Christian Felsheim, OEM sales manager within Andor Technology, said: "Our partnering with MVTec brings a wide range of added benefits to our customers in the photovoltaic and life sciences related industries and makes our iKon-M and Luca-R cameras even more productive tools.”
Christoph Zierl, director product management for MVTec, commented: “Thanks to our latest cooperation with Andor, HALCON now supports scientific-grade high sensitivity cameras. This is attractive to our customers with demanding inspection applications and opens new frontiers for the automated medical image analysis.”
