Vision software update supports camera technology
The EyeVision software by EVT has been revised, allowing compatibility with CoaXPress cameras in addition to PC interfaces like USB, GigE and FireWire.
The EyeVision software by EVT now also supports CoaXPress cameras, offering a software solution with more speed. The revised EyeVision software allows the user to transfer his images to another interface, allowing the EyeVision user has not only the standard PC interfaces like USB, FireWire (IEEE1394), GigE and CameraLink, but also the CoaXPress BUS. CoaXPress combines coaxial cable with high speed serial data technology.
There will be no change for the EyeVision user, when it comes to the programming interface. If you use a sensor with DSP or a high end PC with CoaXPress interface for the image capture, you will always have the same programming interface. And as already known from the EyeSpector systems, the EyeVision software is programmed quite easy with its drag-and-drop function.
The EyeVision software not only offers a graphical user interface for controlling and monitoring of all cameras, but also the possibility to create even complex image processing solutions in only a few minutes. The intuitive user interface allows therefore the creation and configuration of new inspection programs.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
