Image sensor for multiple inspections

AN image sensor offering enhanced recognition, communication and rapid changeover capabilities has been introduced by Banner Engineering, locally represented by RET Automation Controls.

The new iVu Plus TG sensor extends the iVu image sensor platform with capability to save up to 30 inspections.
It monitors labels, parts and packaging for type, size, orientation, shape and location. Its colour touch screen display and on-board memory allow fast and easy installation and application setup without connection
to a PC.

Ethernet communication assures compatibility with most industrial systems and, in addition to previously available functions, the iVu Plus TG has a sort sensor that recognises up to ten different patterns within the same inspection.
Applications for this new capability include identifying parts on a production line and ensuring required parts are present in a package. Other functions include an area sensor to ensure that features are present on a part, a blemish sensor to detect flaws such as scratches or colour variation and a 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 and a full line of external lighting solutions is available for special applications.
The new iVu Plus TG platform consists of a vision sensor and a bar code reader, both of which are available with integrated or remote touch screen.
