Adaptive Edge Detection techniques
Extensive set of edge detection tools is available. Automatic edge detection within specified ROI (region of interest), auto edge points. Edge detection providess tools and setups to deal with variety of surface finishes and lighting requirements.

Build in autofocus is offered as standard for both manual and automatic video systems. Focusing an inage before the dimension inspection takes place, increases inspection accuaracy.

Auto Feature Detection
One click operation to measure the range of standard features. Program automatically recognises feature and provides the results..
