Embedded Vision System supports PoE
PoE support reduces cabling complexity for M40 processor by eliminating the necessity for camera power cables; reducing costs, enhancing system reliability.
PPT VISION’s IMPACT M-Series Embedded Vision System features Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, delivering network reliability and significantly simplifying the installation and maintenance of networked devices. Using standard CAT 5 Ethernet cables, system cameras are powered from the embedded M40 processor—which eliminates the need for a separate computer for programming and processing and individual data and power cables. Limited cable wiring decreases installation and wiring expenses, while providing a more clear and safe workspace for operators and equipment. PoE allows for increased system flexibility with the ability to install virtually anywhere, allowing devices to be located at distances over 100 meters from a power supply.
Using uninterrupted power supply (UPS), PoE ensures the reliability and availability of the IMPACT M-Series cameras operating on the M40 processor. This combination facilitates continuous operation, eliminating power interruptions and costly system downtime.
“PoE support delivers a simple and reliable camera solution for the IMPACT M-Series Embedded Vision System,” said PPT VISION Chief Executive Officer Bob Heller. “Combining power and data into one cable allows for a scalable and flexible networking infrastructure, while providing significant time and cost savings.”
Delivering increased precision and speed to automated inspection, guidance and identification production processes, the IMPACT M-Series Embedded Vision System allows up to four M-Series Smart Cameras to perform independent asynchronously-triggered inspections. Utilizing the single M40 vision processor, the IMPACT M-Series eliminates the need to purchase and install multiple cameras—saving additional costs and reducing setup and networking time. The IMPACT M-Series benefits manufacturing industries ranging from electronics, pharmaceutical, and medical devices to consumer products and automotive. Typical applications include inspecting electronic connectors, correct part seating during die stamping, and detection of fill level and cap position on bottles.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
