The Merkur smart line scan camera series from EVT provides high-speed inspection for materials.
The Merkur camera series from the EVT, specialist of machine vision products, combines a line scan camera and a smart camera, resulting in an intelligent, high-speed system for testing 'continuous' material (as opposed to workpieces), printed material, paper and steel webs in the printing industry and in textile production – a huge help in quality control.
The Merkur ZLS features a FPGA and IP core to programme the testing independently. A Dual Core ARM processor can be optionally extended with a Myriad 2 Deep Learning processor, which then provides even faster applications in deep-learning surface inspections. The camera features Power over Ethernet (PoE), M12 connectors and IP67 protection, and has a maximum resolution of 2X2,048 pixels. The Merkur smart line is used to inspect products and goods transported on conveyor belts, also at high speeds in the printing, sorting and packaging, food processing industries, and all types of surface inspection.
Merkur can be easily integrated into machines, requiring no PC, and is a cost-effective alternative to conventional industrial line scan cameras.
Also, Merkur is supported by Eye Vision software and can thus be used with the entire command set of the drag-and-drop software. The combination of Merkur line scan camera and Eye Vision software is also available as Eye Check ZLS.
