Firstsight Vision has published the latest issue of its well respected Vision Elements Machine Vision Handbook. With 40 per cent more information than the previous edition, the publication features new sections on systems (PCs configured with vision technology), filters, high-speed imaging, UV and IR lighting, and comprehensive coverage of the new GigE Vision and Gen(i)Cam technology.
The handbook is an extremely useful guide to machine vision, since each section features a comprehensive 'technology overview' that not only explains clearly how products featured within the section work, but also shows how they can best be applied in machine vision systems. This can be extremely useful when considering complex issues such as getting the correct illumination for a particular application.
Selecting and ordering of products has also been simplified, with more emphasis on the performance of product 'series' as well as full order codes for each product. Firstsight Vision Director, Mark Williamson says: "Producing a new edition of the handbook is a major exercise, but so many of our customers have told us how useful they have found it that we feel the investment in time and effort is really worth it. It is the sort of publications that engineers keep on their shelves."
The Machine Vision Handbook is part of Firstsight Visions strategy to work in partnership with customers by adding real value in the selection of machine vision technology.
