Munich, May 28, 2019 - MVTec Software GmbH (www.mvtec.com), the top provider of modern machine vision software, and Hilscher Gesellschaft für Systemautomation mbH (www.hilscher.com), a market director for PC cards for industrial communication, begun a technical partnership to enable easier integration of machine vision and process automation. Combining MVTec software products with Hilscher PC cards enables powerful machine vision applications to be integrated easily and seamlessly into any process control system. For example, MVTec's machine vision software MERLIC can communicate universally with all commercial programmable logic controllers (PLCs). The partnership rewards customers by perfectly bundling two leading and compatible technologies.

 

Optimized process integration into MVTec MERLIC

As for MVTec, the optimized strategy integration is largely based on the application programming interface (API) of the cifX PC card family from Hilscher. This API is a standardized interface for all PC cards which are offered by the manufacturer for all common form factors. Users of MVTec MERLIC and MVTec HALCON can pick from among all popular Fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet industrial protocols, including PROFINET, EtherCAT, and many different standards.

 

Thanks to Hilscher's steady platform strategy, all cifX PC cards use the standard API as well as the same drivers and tools, regardless of the protocol or card format. The integration of the multiprotocol netX processor enables all Real-Time Ethernet protocols to be realized with just one hardware. To switch from one protocol to another, only the firmware has to be reloaded.

 

"The combination of MVTec and Hilscher products proves how easy it is to connect the two 'worlds' of machine vision and process automation," says Christoph Zierl, Technical Director at MVTec Software GmbH, about the collaborative effort. "We look ahead to promoting our customers this great added value and hope to see many more machine vision solutions based on the revolutionary products from Hilscher and MVTec in the near future."

 

"With our cifX PC card technology, we are happy to offer HALCON and MERLIC users an interface between their automation network and machine vision software," adds Tim Pauls, Product Manager at Hilscher Gesellschaft für Systemautomation mbH. "The combination of MVTec and Hilscher technology provides users with a unique range of drivers, form factors, and network protocols, along with powerful machine vision software."
