The F30 machine vision system incorporates a camera lens, lighting, and processor into a 3 x 3 x 6-inch assembly. This system fills the niche between high-end photoelectric sensors that cannot detect two dimensions and which require adjustments as applications and/or products change, and basic vision systems that require programming and considerable set-up time. The F30 is for inspection applications such as presence/absence, orientation, parts sorting, and detecting foreign material in objects or their packaging as they are being manufactured.
