Omron Industrial Automation: Smart Camera for Pick-and-Place Robots
Vision sensors offer built-in motion tracking and EtherCAT/Ethernet.
The FQ-M vision sensor comes with Ethernet and EtherCAT embedded for ease of integration into any environment, and includes an incremental encoder for easy tracking and calibration. It features a processing speed of 5000 pieces per minute even with full 360 degree rotation. The unit is easily configured for guidance of dynamic pick-and-place robots using the company's Sysmac Studio software, and is complemented by the palm-sized TouchFinder console for local monitoring and access to functions and settings. The smart camera meets all the needs of demanding object recognition and tracking applications, combining a camera, image processing functionality and flexible communications options in a single package. The vision sensor ensures stable and robust shape-based detection even under changeable environmental conditions, and has been designed for the inspection of a wide range of objects.
