Scorpion Mono Stinger™: Wolf in sheep’s clothing!

Oslo, Norway – September 29th, 2011
Tordivel AS announces a brand new product range: Scorpion Mono Stinger™. Scorpion Mono Stinger™ is all the hardware and software you need to build your own vision sensor. We provide the best, low cost and high performance platform for OEM, machine builders and automation partners to build their own 2D or 3D vision sensor solution into their equipment or solution.

Scorpion Mono Stinger™  solves tasks within object location, shape verification, barcode reading, label inspection, assembly verification, counting, alignment, robot vision,color identification and gauging.

Scorpion Mono Stinger: Wolf in sheep’s clothing

Scorpion Mono Stinger is powered by a selection of the best 2D and 3D machine vision algorithms from Scorpion Vision Software 9.0. They run on a PC and have the accumulated industrial strength and the extensive results from a series of large 3D Machine Vision R&D projects. Sub-pixel measurement with MonoPose3D, the fastest object location and robust filtering, is available with Mono Stinger to build into any solution, product or machine.

Extended by custom Scorpion Tool Components 

Mono Stinger can be extended to meet any requirement with the new Scorpion Tool Components based on Scorpion Vision Software or the best open-source image processing: OpenCV 1.1 or 2.3, NumPy or SciPy or the the user’s own algorithm developed in C or C++.

Scorpion Vision Apps

We invented the new Scorpion Vision Apps to lower the integration cost of machine vision in manufacturing. The Scorpion Vision App is compatible with Scorpion Mono Stinger and will reduce the development time of an OEM solution to the bare minimum.   The user screen is minimal, compact and very easy to understand.

Scorpion Mono Stinger™ features:

  • Multicore support by manual thread management produces near optimal linear speed-up
  • Extremely easy to use Scorpion Vision Apps
  • Scorpion Plugins and Scorpion Tool Components
  • Sub-pixel accuracy
  • 3D Imaging with Laser Triangulation or 3D MonoPose
  • Scorpion Mono Stinger Starter Kit
  • Windows XP and Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit compatibility

Backed by the best support

The Tordivel development team backs the Scorpion Mono Stinger with the finest 2D and 3D customisation.

Scorpion Vision Software® Concept

Scorpion Vision Software provides powerful image processing for 2D and 3D applications without the need of programming skills.  Machine Solutions and Scorpion Vision Apps are developed in a user friendly graphical user interface that can be customized to show various amounts of information and controls to the operator such as html based instruction screens and visual studio style controls using com add-ins. A number of different image analysis tools are available with user selectable outputs. This allows for rapid development from the simplest to the most complex image analysis tasks.
The user interface also has built-in statistics and logging capabilities making it ideal for process control and integrating with manufacturing database systems.

Scorpion Vision Software® is an extremely robust and accurate 2D and 3D machine vision software framework including: integrated python development, scorpion plugins, scorpion components, .net plugins,  2D toolbox of 100 tools, 2D and 3D visualization, 3D toolbox containing 50 tools, extremely accurate 3D stereo vision, a nice tool set for 3D point cloud processing.

Scorpion Vision Software® is an independent and open software tool for industrial vision. The system gives the user the choice of a compact pc-based Scorpion Mono Stinger™ Sensor, a small form factor of an embedded PC, a SmartCam or the power of an Industrial PC multicore PC. The system is founded on top of a standard Windows XP/Vista/7 PC platform. It is cost effective benefitting from the processing power of the multicore CPU, low cost – high quality firewire/usb/GigE cameras and the possibility of connecting multiple cameras to one PC. The Scorpion Stinger family of hardware components is compatible with Scorpion Vision Software.
