Touch screen vision sensors with Ethernet connectivity
Inspection setup is accomplished through a menu-driven user interface, with no PC required. The iVu Plus family includes integrated touch screen TG and BCR (Bar Code Reader) models, as well as remote versions of both. Integrated iVu Plus sensors allow users to quickly setup and modify an inspection on-site, while remote versions pair a remote touch screen display with one or more separate sensors.
Equipped with three discrete communication channels over Ethernet or serial interfaces and a faster processor, both the iVu Plus TG and iVu Plus BCR models can export data, such as inspection and image results, to HMIs and PCs at a much greater speed. The sensors feature a command channel and data export channels to support remote control and results, as well as an image export channel to export image data.
A 2.7" (68.5mm) LCD color built-in display comes standard on integrated models, while the remote versions feature a 3.5" (88.9mm) display. The iVu Plus TG can be configured to operate as one of four different sensor types to tackle diverse inspections. These types include Area, which verifies the presence of a feature or features of interest; Blemish, which identifies flaws on a part, such as scratches on a disc; Match, which verifies that a pattern, shape or part in any orientation matches a reference pattern; and Sort, the newest sensor type, which recognizes and sorts different patterns of parts, such as nuts, bolts, and washers.
Each iVu Plus model is housed in an IEC IP67-rated housing, making the sensors rugged and versatile to suit a broad range of application environments. The camera acquire up to 100 frames per second, and each sensor includes an integrated ring light available in red, green, blue, white, or infrared. With USB 2.0 output, users can simply save and load configuration data to expedite inspection setup.
