ADLINK introduces ready-to-go smart camera with MVTec MERLIC
NEON-1021-M delivers application-supported high performance all-in-one machine vision performance with no programming requirement
ADLINK Technology, a global provider of trusted machine vision products, today announced the release of its new NEON-1021-M Intel® Atom™ E3845 processor-based ready-to-go smart camera with MVTec MERLIC. Equipping its state-of-the-art quad-core smart camera with an easy-to-use machine vision software, the NEON-1021-M significantly increases competitive advantage, exceeding basic smart camera advantages for machine vision development.
“MERLIC’s ease-of-use and its powerful machine vision software tools, combined with ADLINK’s state-of-the-art imaging hardware, provide quick deployment of solutions with minimal configuration effort. This makes the combination ideal for facing the challenges of increasingly fast-paced markets”. — Torsten Wiesinger, Sales Director, MVTec Software GmbH.
ADLINK’s NEON-1021-M features high performance quad-core Intel® Atom™ processors, speedy multi-ROI image capture, 2MP global shutter image sensors, and PWM lighting control support. High-speed multi-barcode capture by multi-ROI function shortens image processing cycle time, and optimized I/O includes one additional slave GigE Vision camera connection, 4x isolated input, 4x isolated output, and VGA output for maximized integration with external devices. Rugged construction with IP67-rated housing and M12 connectors enables the NEON-1021-M to withstand the harshest industrial environments.
“ADLINK’s NEON smart camera series breaks the boundaries of smart camera and embedded vision systems, and the integration of the easy-to-use machine vision software MERLIC makes it a simple matter for system integration to fulfill a wide variety of inspection application needs.” Simon You, Product Director, Automation Business Center at ADLINK Technology Inc.
MVTec MERLIC is an all-in-one tool for quickly building machine vision applications with no programming requirement. Based on MVTec’s extensive machine vision expertise and combining reliable, fast performance with ease of use, the PC-based complete software solution features an image-centric user interface, intuitively guiding the user through the application. Similar to a WYSIWYG editor (what-you-see-is-what-you-get), developers can focus on the image-based display rather than complex lines of code or parameter lists. MERLIC is particularly suited to operations that favor a clear, graphical user interface for configuring imaging functions.
