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 - Embedded Vision SystemPPT 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

Participate in the 2013 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.
