                      For many years, most machine vision systems only operated in black-and-white. Even today, the majority of machine vision applications are still monochrome. Yet there are a growing number of applications where color imaging is both required andcan provide significant advantages.

                      The use of color in machine vision applications has increased significantly in the past ten years. This has been accompanied by steady improvements in both the camera technology and the algorithms to support color machine vision applications. As a result, many more machine vision system designers are finding themselves facing new challenges as they embark on building systems where color is a critical factor.

                      Read on to learn more about the unique characteristics of color imaging in machine vision and find out which color imaging machine vision technologies best suit your application requirements.

                    • Advanced color microscopy solutions for life sciences and industrial applications.

                      It is often said that the world gets smaller every day. For designers of vision systems, that phrase takes on a special meaning as increasing numbers of today’s vision systems must concern themselves with microscopic details. Tasks which once might have been performed manually by a single individual with an optical microscope, are now being performed faster and with higher accuracy and repeatability than ever before by combining microscopy with digital cameras and sophisticated image capture and analysis software.  

                      These microscope-based machine vision systems can be found in a wide range of life sciences applications, as well as in industrial applications ranging from semiconductor inspection to materials science to failure analysis and QA.

                      For many of these digital microscopy systems, the capture and analysis of color information is critical to meeting the application’s goals. Thus, the system’s camera or cameras, which serve as the “eyes” of the system, must be able to provide the right levels of both spatial and color information to enable the software “brain” of the system to perform its function.

                      Read on to learn more about digital microscopy solutions and how various camera capabilities can be utilized to meet your application requirements.

                    • Tech Guide: Multispectral Imaging

                    • Multispectral imaging for medical and industrial machine vision systems

                      Just as machine vision systems have evolved from traditional monochrome cameras to many systems that now utilize full color imaging information, there has also been an evolution from systems that only captured broadband images in the visible spectrum, to those that can utilize targeted spectral bands in both visible and non-visible spectral regions to perform more sophisticated inspection and analysis.

                      The color output of the cameras used in the machine vision industry today is largely based on Bayer-pattern or trilinear sensor technology. But imaging is moving well beyond conventional color where standard RGB is not enough to carry out inspection tasks. Some applications demand unconventional RGB wavelength bands while others demand a combination of visible and non-visible wavelengths. Others require exclusively non-visible wavelengths such as UV, NIR or SWIR, with no wavebands in the visible spectrum.

                      Complex metrology and imaging applications are beginning to demand higher numbers of spectral channels or possibilities to select application-specific spectral filtering at high inspection throughputs. With the traditional machine vision industry merging with intricate measurement technologies, consistent, reliable, high-fidelity color and multispectral imaging are playing key roles in industrial quality control.

                      Multispectral cameras capture image data at specific frequencies across the electromagnetic spectrum. The wavelengths may be separated by filters or using instruments which are sensitive to specific wavelengths, including light from frequencies beyond our visible sight, such as infrared. Spectral imaging also allows for extraction of additional information which the human eye fails to capture.

                      Read on to learn more about multispectral imaging solutions and how various camera capabilities can be utilized to meet your application requirements.
