Microscan to Introduce AutoVISION™ 2.0, the Next Generation of Simplified Machine Vision Software, at Automate 2013
January 3, 2013
RENTON, WA, January 3, 2013 – Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision and lighting
solutions, will demonstrate AutoVISION™ 2.0, its latest generation of machine vision software in booth #425 at Automate 2013,
scheduled to take place at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL, January 21-24. AutoVISION 2.0 combines a simplified user interface with
a powerful toolset for inspection, error proofing, and identification applications.
Microscan first introduced AutoVISION software in 2011, and it has since been widely adopted by manufacturers looking to implement
machine vision based systems with minimal time, effort, and training. AutoVISION 2.0 maintains the same intuitive interface as the
initial AutoVISION release, but provides additional capabilities, including Verification and OCV (Optical Character Verification)
tools to validate print quality, a logic tool for building pass/fail criteria, and support for automated job changeover.
AutoVISION 2.0 also features Microscan LINK. for easy connectivity to PLCs and other industrial control systems.
AutoVISION 2.0 supports Microscan’s Vision MINI and Vision HAWK Smart Cameras. With compact, fully integrated or C-Mount designs,
the hardware line offers a range of solutions for easy integration into systems or existing production lines. The AutoVISION suite
of products provides an ideal solution for manufacturers who need to read barcodes, but want to add additional inspection
capabilities to this process with a single hardware device. For more complex applications, AutoVISION can be upgraded to
Microscan’s advanced Visionscape platform. This scalable format protects the customer’s time, effort and capital investment in
their system because it is uniquely expandable to handle cases where requirements expand beyond the scope of original application.
The common software architecture across Microscan‘s hardware line enables portability from smart cameras to PC-based systems.
