ifm Introduces the Series O2V Efector Dualis Pixel Counter Sensor for Inspection and Error-Proofing Applications
EXTON, PA - ifm's Series O2V efector dualis Pixel Counter sensor solves a variety of inspection and error-proofing applications throughout the manufacturing process. The compact CMOS vision sensor provides reliable performance in production control. The Pixel Counter analyzes the area of an object by counting the pixels and can identify objects that vary in shape, size or shade. Applications include part verification, orientation, sortation, part / no part, pattern matching, shape detection, object counting and contrast, inner/outer radius and measurement.
The Series O2V Pixel Counter includes an image sensor, evaluation electronics and integrated lighting in a die-cast metal housing that withstands harsh industrial environments. Objects are reliably detected and precisely evaluated with the sensor's fast image capture and powerful algorithms. The sensor's pushbutton setup and 4-digit numeric display indicates the sensor's output. An on-board lighting element illuminates the object and provides the corrct amount of image brightness at various ranges. An easily accessible focus tool quickly defines images. The sensor features an easy-to-follow Setup Wizard that guides the user for quick setup and supports Allen-Bradley's Ethernet IP and standard Ethernet TCP products.
The 24 VDC units are available with PNP or NPN output and offer an IP67 III NEMA protection rating. The sensors carry a 100 mA maximum load current per switching output and an 14...122°F (-10...50°C) operating temperature.
