Sherlock 7 is an advanced machine vision software designed for systems integrators and end users. It can be easily configured to solve a wide variety of automated inspection problems.
Sherlock 7 machine vision software is a "point & click"
design environment and provides an extremely rich suite of proven tools
and functionality that have been deployed in thousands of installations
iPD's Sherlock 7 is designed with iPD's "ease-of-use" philosophy
and so can be used to develop applications in very short times giving
integrators the advantage of reduced development costs and reduced time
Sherlock 7 machine vision software has many tools and functions including
advanced pattern finding tools for object alignment and robot guidance;
measurement tools; calibration tools for lens distortion; analysis tools
such as blob analysis and edge counting; colour tools for monitoring,
classifying, sorting and tracking; barcode and optical character reading
tools; scripting tools; I/O tools; maths tools and many many more.
Sherlock 7 machine vision software operates on Windows-based Desktop
or Industrial PC's and with IPD's Vision Appliances which are compact,
fully integrated multi-camera vision systems. When used with Sherlock
Vision Appliances can provide full colour or mono imaging, in-built opto-isolated
I/O, real-time reject queuing and timing and all other features required
of a high performance vision system.
Sherlock 7 Machine vision software Features:
iPD's Sherlock is represented and fully supported in Australia and New
Zealand by Adept Electronic Solutions and is used in a wide variety of
applications to provide quality assurance and control in manufacturing.
Be it identifying and rejecting defective parts on a conveyer or guiding
a robotic arm doing spot welds. Armed with proven machine vision software
tools in a "point & click" interface, no programming is
required and the development, testing and commissioning of a vision system
is rapidly facilitated.
iPD's Sherlock 7 automated quality inspection program allows you to identify
and correct problems before your customers find them. Sherlock 7 will
help you improve customer satisfaction, increase productivity and reduce
production costs. In addition, it offers you the flexibility to adapt
with your changing inspection needs and protect your technology investment.

Vision Technology's new Guppy F-044NIR Firewire 1394a camera uses a highly-sensitive
interlaced sensor to produce highly sensitive images in the visible and
near infrared. The interlaced F-044NIR CCD camera is available as both
a monochrome and colour cameras and comes equipped with a ½"
Sony ExView HAD CCD sensor. It features a resolution equal to that of
standard analog CCIR or PAL cameras (752 x 580 pixels) and so makes the
transition from analog to digital simple and affordable. The F-044NIR
is ideal as a replacement for analog cameras and for applications that
require high sensitivity or sensitivity in the Near Infra-red spectrum.
The Guppy F-044NIR CCD camera operates at up to 25 frames per second
or 50 fields per second. It is equipped with a plug-and-play Firewire
(IEEE 1394a) digital interface that replaces the need for frame grabbers
and provides simple and fast connectivity.
The F-044NIR CCD camera has newly integrated smart functions and features
that can be programmed with the Application programming Interface supplied
with the cameras. These features include single/multi/free-run modes,
1 programmable input and 3 programmable outputs, AGC (Auto Gain control),
AEC (Auto Exposure Control), AWB (Auto White Balance), LookUp Table and
many others. Allied Vision Technology firewire cameras are the industry
leader for advanced features.
One size fits all takes on a new meaning for this tiny CCD camera with
its overall size at just 48.2x30x30mm. It has the ability to fit snuggly
and compactly into space-constrained applications and to be mounted in
weight limited situations. Its extraordinary price-performance ratio and
ease-of-use makes this remarkable CCD camera a must consider for many
The Guppy F-044NIR CCD camera has made the transition from analog to
digital a lot simpler. The best of both worlds have truly come into the
AVT Guppy family - Red hot and ready to play.

DALSA's new Genie high speed GigE Vision cameras are compact easy-to-use digital cameras engineered specifically to accommodate most industrial machine vision applications.
Dalsa's high speed Genie cameras use Dalsa exclusive sensor technology to provide unprecedented image acquisition quality in a small compact form factor that allows them to be implemented into most tight-fit applications that require high performance.
With an uncompromised signal-to-noise ratio all Genie high speed cameras transmit digital images over the Gigabit-Ethernet interface with the use of standard CAT-5e and CAT-6 cables for up to 100m.
The Genie series comply with the international GigE interface standard called GigE Vision released by the AIA (Automated Imaging Association) and therefore are plug and play replaceable with other GigE Vision cameras. They are supported with Sapera, Dalsa's machine vision software offering fast, simple setup with unique data reliability features.
The Genie HM1400 features 1400x1024 pixel resolution at capture rates up to 75fps at full resolution and 300 fps at VGA resolution while maintaining a crisp image quality. Its global electronic shutter with exposure control allows the HM1400 to handle the capture of very fast moving objects.
On-board flat-field correction allows users to flatten the effects of uneven lighting and to correct for pixel variations therefore simplifying software analysis. The anti-blooming feature of the Genie HM1400 provides the ability to minimise artifacts due to the effects of very bright points or areas of an image.
Unlike many other GigE cameras the Genie series are compatible to most gigabit ethernet chipsets and do not rely on some specific features of a limited number of chipsets on the market. They produce high data rates over networks with very limited CPU involvement, leaving the CPU for image processing tasks.
DALSA's Sapera software enables users to benefit through its fast and simple camera setup. As soon as the camera is connected to the system, auto discovery automatically identifies the camera and communicates all of the supported features to the Sapera environment greatly facilitating system setup and configuration.
Moreover the Genie Framework package found in the Sapera software employs DALSA's Trigger-to-Image reliability framework. This allows it to dependably capture and transfer images from the camera to the host PC.
Trigger-to-Image reliability (T2IR) is an engineering design framework exclusive to Dalsa, ensuring the reliability of the image acquisition system by supplying the key design elements needed to:
1) Secure the image acquisition process
In summary the Genie HM1400 high speed monochrome camera features:
