ADVANCED OCR TOOL The Advanced OCR tool is a powerful vision software tool for challenging OCR applications demanding fast reading and extremely high recognition rate of hard-to-read characters. Available with IMPACT Software 11.11, the Advanced OCR is the best solution for reading ink-jet printed dot matrix strings on package labels and embossed characters, raised or lowered in the product surface, used primarily in the Food and Beverage and Automotive industries.

Many applications in robotics and automated serial production can only be satisfactorily implemented using three-dimensional data. This applies equally to challenging assembly processes such as bonding and welding, and to the notoriously tricky process of bin picking. The Ensenso 3D cameras from IDS represents a solution for 3D image capture that is impressively precise, cost-efficient and fast. With the Ensenso X, IDS is providing a 3D camera system that makes 3D vision applications very easy and flexible to implement. The system comprises a powerful 100 W projector unit with an integrated GigE switch on which two 1.3 megapixel cameras can be mounted at different distances. This facilitates a range of working distances and angles and allows you to capture larger objects, such as whole pallets or entire rooms. Cameras, lenses, baseline, adjustment angles and focal distance can be selected freely. This gives the system endless flexibility to tailor it to your 3D application requirements. The range of applications includes anything from bin picking to warehouse and logistics automation. PROTECTED AGAINST DIRT, DUST, WATER SPLASHES The Ensenso X series is now extended with models for rough environments. All components of the new Ensenso X30 FA and X36 FA camera systems fulfill the requirements of protection code IP65/67 and are effectively protected against dust, dirt and water splashes.

Verification software for ID mark reading helps ensure effective product identification by way of dot-matrix characters and printed barcodes. Machines easily read barcodes, but this format is challenging for human legibility. Consequently, inkjet-printed dotmatrix characters remain the most common form of human-readable text on product packaging. These printers are not without their own challenges, and imperfections or variations in the way text is printed are common occurrences. These imperfections make reading for automatic tracking difficult. Thankfully, the world’s most comprehensive solution for reading dot-matrix text resides in Matrox SureDotOCR™, a software tool specifically designed for the unique challenge of reading dot-matrix text. Using Matrox SureDotOCR is as straightforward as specifying the number of characters in a potential text string, the size of the dots, and the approximate dimensions of the text region—and yields accurate, reliable results every time. This powerful software tool easily reads multiple lines of text, even in instances when lines contain different fonts. Choose from a set of pre-defined fonts and punctuation marks, or input custom fonts for more precise matching. SureDotOCR accepts a range of user-defined constraints, overall and at specific character positions, that help improve character recognition rates. Skewed angles, uneven backgrounds, variation in character scale or contrast, or distorted characters pose no issue for this robust tool. FASTER THAN EVER Recent optimizations to SureDotOCR have improved reading speed. SureDotOCR can now read two times faster than before, reaching an industry-best speed of over 2,000 ppm when using an Intel® Core™ i5-6500TE platform. Speeds of four times previous rates have also been measured under specific conditions. POWERED BY FIELD-PROVEN SOFTWARE Powered by Matrox Imaging software, SureDotOCR is available as a featured tool in both Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) and Matrox Design Assistant software. MIL is a software development kit (SDK) for creating vision application through traditional programming, while Matrox Design Assistant is an integrated development environment (IDE) where vision applications are created by constructing an intuitive flowchart. Whichever development environment is selected, be confident that SureDotOCR delivers rapid, accurate, and reliable track and trace capabilities for applications with stringent regulatory requirements. Whatever the requirement, be sure with SureDotOCR.
