Available in Standard, advanced and professional, MERLIC 4 is flexible
and easy-to-use by factory-floor personnel.
It is an all-in-one software package designed for building machine
vision applications without the need for programming and offers
fast performance and ease-of-use.
Version 4 has added new features and addresses
key demands in the machine vision market: Parallelization, 3D vision
and PLC integration.
A key highlight of MERLIC
4 is the parallel processing tool which simplifies the implementation
of multi-camera setups and allows for a more efficient use of the
system's computing power. Different machine vision tasks can now
be performed on one single instance.
3D vision tools
MERLIC 4 provides 3D vision tools based on
height images. This provides users with the ability to read embossed
text, check heights and perform other 3D machine vision tasks. For
this, four new tools are included that make it possible to prepare
images from 3D sensors or 3D cameras so that inspections can be
carried out using MERLIC's existing 2D tools.
Process integration with
real-time Ethernet and fieldbus systems and recipes
MERLIC 4 now provides optimized process integration via Hilscher
cifX cards of all current for factors enabling easy communicating
with common fieldbus and real-time Ethernet industrial protocols,
such as EtherCAT PROFINET and many others, via Hilscher PC cards.
This makes it possible to use a programmable logic controller (PLC)
to integrate, seamlessly.
• Non-skilled users can develop a robust professional vision
• Just about anyone on the factory floor can build their own
inspection with GUI without having to write any code
• MERLIC enables a faster time to market due to the shortening
of software training time
• The total cost-of-ownership is lowered by MERLIC: Changing
a product or inspection is quicker, cheaper and easier with MERLIC
• MERLIC is simple and quick, but, for customised inspections,
it can be combined with MVTec’s rich-and-powerful HALCON Toolbox
for added functionality
