IMPACT® M40 Embedded Vision System

Inspect, Guide and Identify

PPT VISION's M40 Vision Processor is a ruggedized and compact embedded vision system that features Intel Multi-Core processors and four independent PoE (Power over Ethernet) Camera ports. Long-life embedded components of the M40 provide a very robust and reliable vision system for mission critical inspection applications.




M40 Processor Features and Benefits

  • Controls up to 4 M-Series cameras — Reduces cost per inspection point via shared processing
  • PC built into the M40 processor — No added PC required, lower installation cost
  • Multi-Core processing power — Increases inspection power providing higher inspection rates
  • Wide selection of camera models — Allows for a selection of unique camera capabilities for application specific requirements
  • Supports PoE (Power over Ethernet) — Reducing cabling complexity by eliminating the necessity for camera power cables
  • Supports GigE Cameras — Capable of running up to 100m from M40 processor to cameras using standard Cat6a cables
  • Utilizes IMPACT's Vision Program Manager (VPM) — Allows fast deployment of flexible, robust inspection tasks and migration of existing inspection tasks to A, T, C and M processors
  • Utilizes IMPACT's Control Panel Manager (CPM) — With the addition of a monitor, the M40 enables deployment of a configurable and secure operator interface with "on-the-fly" control
  • Easily integrates with PPT VISION's A, T, & C Smart Cameras — allows for data sharing and inter-camera communication without the need for a PC
  • Optional Embedded Security Software — Maintains security by preventing unauthorized changes to the system software.
