Universal Vision Sensors

April 9, 2008
Multi-purpose VOS300 Series Vision Sensors combine a camera, illumination, digital outputs, process data and five evaluation methods into a single, rugged sensor housing.
The result is an out-of-the-box vision sensing solution that can be configured without programming knowledge and operated without the need for detailed image processing experience, says the vendor. Two versions are available. The VOS301 can check a single feature of the target object. The VOS310 can check up to five unique features, with checks logically linked together to facilitate detection of the complete presence of several details. VOS300 vision sensors act like a simple sensor with a single discrete output indicating general “pass/fail” status. Additional data can be read from the sensor via the Ethernet connection to determine the pass or fail condition of each feature check. Sensing range is 100mm when using internal illumination, and 500mm using external illumination, with 640x480 resolution. Pepperl+Fuchswww.am.pepperl-fuchs.com330.486-0001
