PVS-30 & PVS-30-M1 Compact
Image Processing System
The PVS-30 Machine Vision System is similar to the PVS-20
compact machine vision system but offers more processing power and additional
Show above is the PVS-30-M1, Standard Configuration
includes a built-in 10.4" TFT flat panel display packaged in a NEMA-4
The PVS-30 features state-of-the-art technology at half the price of
comparable systems. The system offer 256 level grayscale processing as well as
the more common binary processing. The PVS-30 can use two 1/3-inch format
Progressive- Scan sensors. The system has two camera inputs and allows
two images to be acquired simultaneously! The PVS-30 also includes a programmable logic
controller with 8 inputs, 8 outputs and a dedicated "ready" line. There
are 8 internal count-down timers and 8 internal count-down counters.
PVS-30 family of image processors has been expanded to better match the
application to image processor.
The PVS-30 family a complete line of image processor to handle a wide range
of inspection applications. The processing family consist of the IV-S31,
IV-S32, IV-S33 and the IV-S35 (color). Each processor offer a special
feature set and price point to help you match the processing power to the
specific application. The entire family of IV-S30 products offers the
capability to support 2 cameras and a built-in PLC to condition digital

Processing can be either 256 grayscale of binary.
Region of Interest can be Circular, Ellipse or Rectangular in shape.
Image processing tools allow Sub-pixel measurement Accuracy, High Speed
Pattern Matching, Part Rotation Correction (PVS-20 ±90°, PVS-30 360°),
Edge Calipers and Blob Analysis.
Built-in light level meter that provides low light alarm and automatic
The image processor incorporates hardware for fast normalized correlation
All programming functions are performed "On-line" so that you
can "see" the results of parameter adjustments in real-time.
Inspection results may be displayed on the external monitor.
The PVS-30 series image processors offer the control engineer
an attractive alternative to more expensive PC based machine vision systems or less than
reliable intelligent sensors. The system is packaged for industrial applications
in a heavy duty NEMA type 4 or type 12 enclosure with forced air cooling or air
conditioning. The PVS-30
product includes all the necessary components require for system installation.
PVS-30 series products can be removed from their shipping containers and mounted in the plant environment without modification.

PVS-30 Image sensors
The PVS-30 sensors offer detachable sensor cables. The cables are
offered in several different lengths to meet application requirements. The
standard cable lengths (typically a stock item) are 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, 15, and
Progressive Scan video inputs (the system has 2 inputs allowing simultaneous
capture from both sensors). The sensor has an adjustable electronic shutter, the
range covers 1/30 to 1/10,000 in fine increments. The electronic shutter feature
allow the system capture moving objects without the use of a strobe light and
the progressive scan feature insures that the image does not stair step or
shear. The 1/3 inch format sensor incorporates 8µm square pixels providing 512
x 480 resolution, readout can be either full frame or partial area.
The sensors may be mounted in optional PVS-30-ENC1 or ENC2 Sensor enclosures. The
a convenient environmental enclosure that allows easy mounting and lens
adjustment. The enclosures are a completely sealed "clam shell"
design with a 2" borosilicate window.
