DVT Releases Legend XE Camera

Product Range Expanded to 'Sweet 16' Fully Integrated Cameras

Duluth, GA, May 3, 2004 ¨C The DVT stainless steel Extreme Environment Legend XE camera, released at Vision Show East in Boston, brings the power of the Legend 550 high-speed camera to the wash-down environment.

The new camera system, priced at $8,495, is configured in a stainless steel enclosure that is suitable for FDA-regulated wash-down environments. The Legend XE includes the Legend 550 camera, which features Texas Instruments DSP technology and increased memory, operating at speeds up to eight times faster than DVT's high-speed Legend 540.

"We've hit the 'sweet 16' level," commented Bob Steinke, Chairman and CEO of DVT. "We now offer 16 machine vision cameras¡ªthe broadest range of fully integrated machine vision systems in the industry. As the sophistication and diversity of inspection applications grow, we will grow accordingly. The machine vision industry worldwide is on the move and DVT will continue to lead the way."

The Legend XE is an extreme environment machine vision system that achieves an IP68 rating for dust, wash-down, and corrosion protection, making it suitable for harsh, wash-down environments, common in the food processing industry, or other high humidity environments.

To demonstrate the ruggedness and water-resistant characteristics of the new camera, the Legend XE will be submerged in a saltwater tank at DVT's Vision Show East booth in Boston.

"For many applications, a customer can purchase a Legend XE instead of a camera with a separate housing," commented Steve Gieseking, Director of Research & Development. "The Legend XE is the perfect solution for wash-down environment applications requiring high-speed machine vision."

Unlike other similar wash-down environment vision systems, the slick exterior of the Legend XE is almost devoid of creases and edges, which can trap food bacteria or particles. This allows for an easy wash-down of the system.

The Legend XE, like all DVT machine vision products, comes with free training, free software, and free support. DVT is the only machine vision company to offer a support model that includes free classroom, online and CD-based training, free software and software upgrades, and free online technical support.

DVT attributes its success to the company philosophy of 'Servant Leadership.' This means putting the needs of our customers ahead of our own needs. Instead of asking 'What's in it for me?' we ask our customers 'How may I serve you?' Agape is a Greek term meaning Unconditional Love. DVT's Agape Support is Unconditional.
