Banner Engineering's image sensor has
enhanced recognition, communication and rapid changeover capabilities. It can
save up to 30 inspections and the new iVu Plus TG sensor monitors labels, parts
and packaging for type, size, orientation, shape and location. Its color touch-screen display and on-board memory allow fast and easy
installation and application setup without connection to a PC. Ethernet
communication is compatible with most industrial systems.
The iVu Plus TG has a Sort sensor that can recognize up to ten different patterns within the same inspection. Applications for this new capability include identifying parts on a production line and ensuring that all required parts are present in a package. Other functions included in the unit are:
- Area sensor to ensure that some features are present on a part.
- Blemish sensor to detect flaws such as scratches or color variation.
- Match sensor to verify that a pattern, shape or part is identical to a reference.
Ease of use is supported by integrated lighting, adjustable focus lenses, automatic exposure control and high speed processing. The sensor's housing is rated to IP67 for use in harsh environments. Industry applications include packaging, material handling, robotics, assembly, automotive, food processing, pharmaceutical, electronics, metalworking and plastics.
