Expanded SmartView system. (Supplier's Corner).
Cognex Corporation has expanded the data access capabilities of the
SmartView web inspection system, which is used for detecting and
classifying defects in papers, metals and nonwovens. SmartView will now
feature OPC data access, which ensures real-time inspection control and
data access between the SmartView system and business, production and
quality systems in the mill. Real-time data access can be valuable in
situations where a mill requires notification of defects as they occur
in order to react to them immediately. The SmartView system also
features ODBC access, which provides flexible, remote access to
inspection data from mill information systems and third party production
data management applications. Telephone: 508-6503218; Fax: 508-650-3333.
