"Xpectia", Vision Sensor FZ3 has been selected among its competitors as the best innovative product for 2009 by the French magazine Mesures. A jury composed of journalists and editors of the magazine gathers each year in June to reward the major innovations of the last 12 months. After a press conference held in the Omron IAB French premises last October and followed by a Japanese lunch and vision workshops, the journalist has been impressed by the high performing and easy to handle Xpectia. Important features were also that Omron launched the first 16 million colour system and that Xpectia was able to directly process the images in coulour, not needing any of the usual filters.
The PMM for Vision Products in France Florent Poitrine has been the happy recipient of the innovation trophy for the Industrial Vision category, handed over by the Chief Editor of the magazine Mr Y. Belgnaoui in the premises of the electric trade syndicate in central Paris. A reception then followed,
with champagne and congratulations.
