PVS-50 & PVS-50-M1
Compact Machine Vision Systems
(Windows CE Image Processing System)

The exterior of the PVS-50-M1 Machine Vision System is similar to our PVS-30 compact machine vision system and it uses the same progressive-scan sensors.  However, that is where the similarity between the two family of products ends.  The PVS-50-M1 is available is a 8.4" flat panel display with touch screen capability.  The display may be attached directly to the control unit or mounted remotely with the proper cabling.

The PVS-50-M1 offers a more powerful Central Processing Unit (CPU) with greater image processing capabilities.  The system implements the Microsoft Windows CE operating system to handle the house-keeping and communication functions.  The PVS-50-M1 offers two high-speed USB ports and a high-speed EtherNet port (Tx 10/100).  This allows the user to simply plug-and-play keyboards, mouse and other USB devices for added programming functionality.

Show above is the PVS-50-M1, Standard Configuration includes a built-in 8.4" Touch Screen Flat Panel Display packaged in a NEMA-4 enclosure.

The PVS-50-M1 features state-of-the-art technology at half the price of comparable systems. The system offer 256 level grayscale processing as well as the more common binary processing. The PVS-50-M1 can use two 1/3-inch format progressive-scan sensors.  Each system has two camera inputs and allows two images to be acquired simultaneously! The PVS-50-M1 also includes a programmable logic controller with 16 inputs, 16 outputs and a dedicated "ready" line. There are 16 internal count-down timers and 16 internal count-down counters. There are 64 internal System Relays that can be used for both input and output program control.  There are 1024 Auxiliary Relays that can be used as inputs or outputs for measurement results and program logic.

PVS-50-M1 Internal I/O Standard Configuration

PVS-50-M1 Image processor (Standard Configuration)
[other processor configurations available for additional cost]

  • IVS-51M (Hitachi SH4 chipset, 200 MHz CPU, 100 MHz bus)
  • LCD Monitor Output (Digital), Feed-through video signal (VGA)
  • Menu Programming using Touch Screen
  • Processing can be either 256 grayscale or binary.
  • Region of Interest can be Circular, Ellipse, Rectangular, Polygon or Free-Shape (easier when drawn with mouse).
  • Image processing tools allow Sub-pixel measurement Accuracy, High-speed Pattern Matching, Part Rotation Correction (360, 45, 15), Edge Calipers and Blob Analysis.
  • Optical System Configuration Settings:
        Focus Adjustment
        Contrast Adjustment
        Image Distortion Diagnosis & Compensation
        Image Calibration
  • Built-in light level meter that provides low light alarm and automatic threshold adjustment.
  • The image processor incorporates hardware for fast normalized correlation operations (8 ms for 64 x 64 pixel model in a 256 x 256 pixel search area).
  • All programming functions are performed "On-line" so that you can "see" the results of parameter adjustments in real-time. Inspection results may be displayed on the external monitor.

The PVS-50-M1 series image processors offer the control engineer a very attractive alternative to more expensive PC based machine vision systems or less than reliable intelligent sensors. The system is packaged for industrial applications in a heavy-duty NEMA type 4 or type 12 enclosure with internal re-circulating air, exchanged external forced air cooling (Vented Fans), sealed heat exchanger or solid-state air conditioning unit. The PVS-50-M1 right-side plate is designed to accommodate all of the afore mentioned cooling techniques and may retrofit in plant if required.

The PVS-50-M1 product includes all the necessary components required for system installation.  PVS-50-M1 series products can be removed from their shipping containers and mounted in the plant environment without modification.
