Top Reasons to Use the Vision Development Module

Use a Single Software Package for All of Your Vision Hardware

Acquire and process images with a wide range of cameras and vision hardware to reduce development time and maintenance costs, as well as port existing code when changing hardware.

Process Images With a Complete Suite of Algorithms

Whether performing optical character recognition on pharmaceutical packaging or examining solar panels for cracks, you can use the hundreds of algorithms in the Vision Development Module to meet any vision application challenge.

Integrate With PLCs, Motion Drives, and Automation Devices

When mere image processing is not enough to complete your application, take advantage of the tools and functions to communicate with other devices using a range of I/O options and protocols including digital I/O, Modbus, Serial RS232, TCP/IP, EtherNet/IP, and EtherCAT.
