Matrox Imaging Launches Project Change Validator to Safeguard Vision Systems

Available in Matrox Design Assistant 5.1, the validation feature protects against erroneous project modifications

MONTREAL, Quebec, November 28, 2017 — Matrox® Imaging today announces Project Change Validator, a modification proofing utility that ensures machine vision systems uphold inspection requirements following any new project updates. Available in the Matrox Design Assistant 5.1 flowchart-based machine vision software, Project Change Validator provides production managers the comfort that all project modifications maintain inspection integrity.

Project Change Validator brings enhanced inspection standards to manufacturing environments by minimizing subjective, end-user interventions that could potentially be detrimental to a project. An easy-to-integrate, easy-to-use tool allows quality control managers to run the utility to record a defined set of reference images, along with the associated inspection settings and results, and use this as a baseline project. A server then performs the validation, permitting production personnel to compare current projects against the reference data and readily detect any invalid changes or anomalies. Users can run the utility remotely via the Matrox Design Assistant web portal, which provides access to the validation data as well as the validation results.

“Project Change Validator gives quality assurance managers confidence knowing all parts, products, or goods adhere to a specific set of inspection standards while mitigating any risk of operators accidentally allowing defective or faulty items to be approved,” said Fabio Perelli, product manager, Matrox Imaging. “Customers who have already deployed the utility have stated that Project Change Validator now acts as a mandatory quality-control mechanism in their vision systems. There’s no substitute for peace of mind.”

Availability
The Project Change Validator utility is now included in Matrox Design Assistant 5.1, which is available to users of Design Assistant through the software’s update service with valid software maintenance. New users are able to purchase Matrox Design Assistant 5.1 today through anyMatrox Imaging representative.
