VIA units easily connect between a video source and monitor and generate an overlay on top of a live video image. Overlays contain graphics and/or measuring lines, used to annotate/measure various aspects of the image in real-time.
The original image is never altered.
The VIA-20J lets users choose one of 11 different pointers. At the touch of a button, individual pointers may be anchored at any location on the screen. Any combination of pointers may be used. In addition, anchored pointers may be erased one at a time until the screen is cleared, or all at once, at the touch of a button. The VIA-20J is available with a joystick controller only.
The VIA-30J provides three types of positionable lines — vertical, horizontal, or crossed lines. Each line may be displayed in one of ten different line patterns: solid fine, medium or bold; dotted fine or bold; dashed fine, medium or bold; scaled fine or bold. An intersection option allows users to select an intersection that is closed or open. A centering option automatically places an intersection in the center of the screen or leaves positioning up to the operator. On-screen menu options let users clear the screen entirely or erase lines one at a time. The VIA-30 is available with a joystick controller only
The VIA-70 provides eight marking tools — typed text, pointers, grids, scales, circles, boxes, lines, and a date/time label. The grids, scales, circles, and boxes can be sized on-screen. With the optional light pen, mouse pen, or mouse, the operator can also freehand draw over the video image. Combinations of different marker types may be created in one overlay and simultaneously displayed. The align mode allows users to position markers in unison over important aspects of the video image. Up to 10 different overlays can be stored and recalled for later use. The VIA70 comes standard with a keyboard; an optional light pen, mouse pen, or mouse can be added to the system.
The VIA-100 enables an operator to perform horizontal (X), vertical (Y), two-dimensional (XY), diagonal (point-to-point), circle (radius and circumference), and angle measurements. Separate X-axis and Y-axis calibration ensures accuracy for all measurements. Ten separate calibrations can be stored and retrieved for multiple measurement setups. The VIA-100 has RS-232 output so that users can transmit ASCII data of measurements to printers or computers. Available with a joystick or knob controller.
>Used with a hardness tester, the VIA-110 provides the capability to measure an indentation using vertical and horizontal measuring lines. A Knoop, Vickers, or Brinell hardness value is automatically determined. With the knob controller, up to 500 of these values can be entered into a statistics table, which displays the count, mean, standard deviation, range, and high and low hardness values. Ten calibrations may be stored and used for multiple measurements. Approximate conversions to Rockwell B or C can also be displayed. A labeling option features the date, operator ID, lot number, sample size, load utilized, dwell time, and magnification. In Brinell mode, label information also includes the ball diameter. The VIA110 has RS-232 output so that users can transmit ASCII data of measurements and statistics to printers or computers. special RS-232 for output to Mitutoyo™ SPC products is accommodated as well. Available with a joystick or knob controller.
The VIA-150 is the first Boeckeler product to combine marking and measuring features. Markers include lines (solid, dashed, or dotted), 10 different pointers such as arrows and cross hairs, vertical and horizontal scales, boxes, circles, alphanumeric labels, grids (solid or dotted; horizontal, vertical, or crossed), and a positionable date/time label. With the VIA-150, operators can measure the horizontal (X) dimension, vertical (Y) dimension, horizontal-vertical (XY) dimensions, diagonals (point-to-point), angles, and circles. Up to 10 different marker overlays and 10 different calibrations may be stored for future retrieval. The VIA-150 has RS-232 output so that users can transmit ASCII data of measurements to printers or computers. Available with a joystick or knob controller.
The VIA-170 combines all the measurement features of the VIA-100, except that instead of on-screen menus, operators simply press a keyboard function key to activate a measuring function, with all the marking features of the VIA-30 and VIA-70. Along with X, Y, XY, point-to-point, angle, and circle measurement modes, the VIA-170 offers an elapsed time mode to track on-screen events and can display path length. This product can also calculate the area of a cell or shape, measure the long and short cords of a cell or object, count cells or particles, and group the cells or particles into ten different categories. A statistics table displays the count, mean, standard deviation, range, and high and low readings for up to 500 measurements. A security menu allows users to protect overlays and calibrations from inadvertent changes. The VIA-170 is the product of choice when an image requires measurement and then quick or extensive typewritten labeling for video prints or other recordings. The VIA-170 comes standard with a keyboard; an optional joystick or knob controller may be used simultaneously with the keyboard, as can an optional light pen, mouse pen, or mouse.
