CONTROL DESIGN is the only industrial automation magazine dedicated to the automation information needs of industrial machine builders, those original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that build the machines that make industry work.

Vision Systems Resource Center

Controls engineers need a variety of information on machine vision topics such as closed-loop vision systems and color sensing.

Machine vision systems are becoming a basic feedback sensor in many industrial applications, along with providing both online and offline inspection capability.

These machine vision systems vary from completely integrated, standalone vision sensors, to systems assembled by users, system integrators, and machine builders from components including cameras, frame grabbers, and computers.

Machine vision software allows users to customize application performance to their specific needs.

Machine vision systems often are built to support fast data handling protocols such as GigE, a gigabit Ethernet protocol for machine vision applications, and a serial Camera Link protocol. Timely news, back-to-basics primers, feature articles, technical white papers and descriptions of the latest products all provide valuable insights that can be used in designing and building machine controls.
