Vision Sensor Advantages
Vision sensors solve factory automation inspections
Vision sensors provide fast pass/fail, yes/no, and go/no-go results to solve automated inspection challenges in ways which differ from other sensor types and are especially well-suited for factory automation. Vision sensors use machine vision tools to perform multiple inspections from a single acquired image.
Key Vision Sensor Features
Vision sensors offer manufacturers many advantages.
Identifies features photoelectric sensors cannot
Vision sensors locate and inspect highly patterned features that other sensors can’t.
Eliminates external triggers
Vision sensors overcome imprecise part positioning using patented multi-image analysis to determine whether a part is present.
Inspects multiple part features
A single vision sensor can perform multiple inspection types in a target image.
Works on a smart display or PC
Operators can set up new parameters or adjust existing inspections on a PC for easy interaction on the factory floor.
Optimizes illumination, brightness, and image contrast
Modular vision sensors can be outfitted with flexible lighting and filter options to create better images and achieve more consistent and reliable results.
Handles misalignment and variability
Vision sensors can detect objects regardless of their speed or position on the line--no mechanical fixturing required.
Easy to use
Simple development environments are designed for both new and existing users.
