SMARTKAMERA IN THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY
In the pharmaceutical industry the circumstances do not allow the integration of a computer based image processing system. Intelligent and computer-autonomous systems can then be used here.
Barcodes on labels are to be read by the customer and the data then transferred to a central control unit.
ISW GmbH has used the Microscan smart camera for the use of intelligent cameras. This camera can be loaded with software jobs previously created in Visionscape, so that no PC is required for the camera.
The cameras then send the previously selected result values to a PLC or computer via an Ethernet cable.
With intelligent cameras, computer systems can be saved, which is an advantage in space-critical applications. The smart camera offers the possibility to use the Visionscapetools on the camera itself.
