Illumination is among the most important components of an image processing system, as it determines which object characteristics are visible and can therefore be checked. We explain to you how to choose the right illumination for your application.
VeriSens vision sensors offer 23 different feature checks. Up to 32 simultaneous checks are possible – with only one captured image – for the efficient implementation of even comprehensive quality controls.
Where others only see grayscales, the patented Baumer FEX image processor for the VeriSens vision sensors calculates object contours at the subpixel level in real time. This means that your image processing functions reliably and quickly at all times, even in unstable ambient light conditions.
The integrated FEXLoc part location with reliable 360° part recognition allows VeriSens vision sensors to virtually align objects – regardless of the background. This completely eliminates mechanical part alignment and feeding.
The intelligent 3D color assistant ColorFEX helps you to set up color inspections quickly and intuitively. The three dimensions of object color, saturation, and brightness including subtle nuances are automatically determined and visualized.
Thanks to the fully integrated VeriFlash flash controller, the VeriSens vision sensors of the XC series generate external flash pulses with up to 48 V and 4 A; hence expensive external flash controllers and the entailed programming effort are no longer needed.
VeriSens SmartGrid (patent pending) with automated coordinate alignment of vision sensor and Universal Robot will reduce setup times of robot-compatible vision sensors to only few minutes – while improving precision and eliminating the conventionally required time-consuming and manual hand-eye calibration. Supported are automated image distortion correction in real time, conversion to world coordinates and additional Z-calibration for 3D scaling of coordinates.
The VeriSens real-time correction of distortion, shading, and perspective bias corrects image distortions and intensity variations, allowing precise image evaluations and dimension checks even if the vision sensor is mounted at an angle.
The configuration software VeriSens Application Suite is uniform for all vision sensors, includes a configurable web interface, is available in nine languages, and guides even non-experts to a fully configured vision sensor in four clearly understandable steps.
The configurable user interface VeriSens web interface allows you to configure the vision sensors at any time, even during the production process, to adjust the range of functions, for example. It can be operated directly via the browser integrated in the machine control.
VeriSens vision sensors offer a complete image processing system in the shape of a sensor. Their compact industry-suited housing integrates an image sensor, illumination or illumination connection, lenses or interchangeable lens connection, software, as well as Ethernet and digital interfaces. They can therefore be used as inline solutions to check various features of products for early recognition and ejection of faulty parts. They offer 23 different feature checks. Following a one-time configuration on the PC with the VeriSens Application Suite, the vision sensors reliably perform their inspection tasks around the clock.
Which applications benefit from vision sensors?
Nowadays, practically everyone wants to benefit from the flexibility and versatility of image-based product inspections. However, in cases where PC-based image processing programs are too complex and expensive and the performance of optical sensors is too weak, vision sensors offer the ideal solution.
They operate particularly efficiently in applications in which several characteristics must be tested simultaneously or in which the position of the inspected objects is constantly changing. VeriSens vision sensors are also the ideal components when different batches are tested on a production line and the acquired data is to be forwarded for evaluation. Thanks to PROFINET and Ethernet/IP, time-critical processes can also be easily and affordably implemented via Industrial Ethernet.
