In automation technology visions sensors are an integral part of assembly and manufacturing tasks as well as quality control. In a robust, industrially compatible housing, the vision sensors combine lighting, lens, camera chip, evaluation and process connections for the integration in the higher-level controller.
The object recognition sensor O2D with orientation-independent contour verification solves tasks like presence and position monitoring, quality control and sorting and counting tasks. It is ideal in applications where the object’s shape is repeatable and defined.
The object inspection sensor O2V is used for presence, completeness, position, size and quality control as well as for sorting tasks. It is ideal for applications where the objects vary in shape, size or shade.
Application areas of the O2I multicode reader range from product tracking and product control to product identification. The sensor can read 1D and 2D codes regardless of their position.
The 3D camera detects scenes and objects in their spatial dimensions at a glance. It measures the distance between the sensor and the nearest surface point by point using the time-of-flight principle. Applications can be found in the area of packaging, storage and materials handling, airport logistics, collision avoidance, robotics, and monitoring of space and persons.
The illumination units generate a homogeneous light field with visible red or invisible infrared light - either for virtually shadow-free object illumination or for emphasising surface characteristics such as dot-peened codes, scratches or nicks.
Industrial imaging’s scope of applications is often also referred to as machine vision, computer vision, 2D image analysis and 3D image analysis. The products indicated here are also known as vision systems or smart cameras.
