All Coherix 3D inspection systems operate on our i-Cite software. This includes Predator3D solution product , Tru3D sensor , 3DX and OPIS . i-Cite executes on any standard PC running the Windows 2000 Pro, XP Pro or 7 operating systems, and supports a dozen different frame grabbers, as well as many USB 2.0, and IEEE 1394 cameras.

By using i-Cite software, you are free of all legacy hardware and you can precisely choose the right configuration of cameras and other peripherals for your application. The modular Vision Chip design allows us to develop your applications in days instead of months, which in turn allow OEM’s to quickly respond to the end user’s rapidly changing needs. In addition to these benefits, our clients typically save 30 percent in hardware costs.
