BELFAST, UNITED KINGDOM – Andor Technology plc, a provider of scientific imaging, spectroscopy solutions and microscopy systems, announced that they have joined the Image Acquisition Partner Program from MVTec (Munich, Germany), an international manufacturer of standard software products for machine vision, after both companies successfully compiled an image acquisition interface between Andor’s highly sensitive, low-noise cameras and MVTec’s image processing library Halcon.

The Halcon Andor interface allows the configuration of and data acquisition from Andor’s iKon-M and Luca-R cameras through MVTec’s Halcon software, using a camera abstraction layer provided by the Halcon library, itself popular in the machine vision world, also for photovoltaic inspection applications. The interface is now available for Halcon 8.0 and 9.0 as well as all upcoming software releases.

Christian Felsheim, OEM sales manager within Andor Technology, says, "Our partnering with MVTec brings a wide range of added benefits to our customers in the Photovoltaic and Life Sciences related industries and makes our iKon-M and Luca-R cameras even more productive tools."

Christoph Zierl, director product management within MVTec, says, "Thanks to our latest cooperation with Andor, Halcon now supports scientific-grade high sensitivity cameras. This is attractive to our customers with demanding inspection applications, like in the PV industry, and it opens new frontiers for the automated medical image analysis."
