IMPACT Software

Advanced Vision Inspection Software Available in Full and Lite Versions

Over 120 Inspection Tools and Customisable Operator Control Panels

IMPACT Software

IMPACT Software Suite, with over 120 inspection tools and 50 user interface controls allows users to create unique inspection programs and develop user interfaces quickly and easily. All this can be done without the loss of flexibility or the need for vast amounts of development time.

Vision Program Manager (VPM) provides hundreds of image processing and analysis functions. Use VPM to enhance images, locate features, measure objects, check for presence or absence, and read text and barcodes.

Control Panel Manager (CPM) simplifies development of operator interfaces providing real time graphical information and the ability to make on-the-fly adjustments to critical machine controls.

For stand-alone smart cameras, IMPACT Lite provides a reduced tool set compared to full IMPACT but maintains the essential features. IMPACT Lite is ideal for feature finding, presence or absence, OCR and barcode reading applications.
