Sensors Simplify Basic Inspections for Part Completeness, Presence, Location and Positioning
Southington, Conn. - February 20, 2008.... Baumer Ltd. has introduced its VeriSens® family of smart vision sensors, including entry level to advanced products that meet the needs of any parts inspection application. Designed to be extremely user-friendly, VeriSens® smart vision sensors are ideal for discrete automation applications in a range of industries including automotive production, electronics manufacturing, food/beverage processing, packaging (general and medical/pharmaceutical), metalworking, printing and graphics, general industrial assembly, and wood processing.
Using contour based algorithms, VeriSens® smart vision sensors provide edges that are more stable and reliable than edges found using photometric (gray scale) methods. As a powerful FEX processor is used to calculate the edges, changes in environmental conditions do not affect the resulting data. Integral lighting and lensing make setup fast and easy. Three levels of VeriSens® smart vision sensors are now available to meet any part inspection requirement. Entry level, CMOS sensor-based 500 Series products offer powerful, contour-based analysis and 1-D position correction functions, in addition to brightness control and contrast inspection. Using the drop-down menus in the included software, even staff with minimal training can inspect for part presence, part location, part completeness, and part position. No programming knowledge is needed to set up the unit.
VeriSens® 1000 Series smart vision sensors are comprehensive products that calculate 2-D position correction and provide data on the position and angle of the target. They can also perform simple measurement and location calculations. A total of 20 photometric and contour sensors are available to solve applications.
The most advanced VeriSens® smart vision sensors available, 1200 Series products offer all the tools of the 1000 Series along with an RS485 communications interface that allows the sensors to transmit and receive data on an application. These sensors can store up to 255 jobs during real time sensor operation. Configurable teaching inputs allow new objects and new reference values to be added when there is a change in production. A total of 32 software tools can be included in each job on both the 1000 and 1200 Series.
For challenging or harsh environments, VeriSens® smart vision sensors are available with stainless steel housings that offer IP69 protection.
