Inspection Precision with Storage

Feb. 1, 2005
The F500 vision sensor is the most precise of the vendor’s line of vision sensors, featuring a 1 million pixel digital camera.

The F500 is well-suited for critical inspection needs in packaging and electronics, where precise appearance, positioning and measurement data is important, says the vendor. The F500 stores up to 200 images in compact flash that can then be transmitted in batches to permanent storage. Two separate processors, one for judgment and one for communication, allow the system to transmit images and be accessed from remote sites without slowing its operating inspection rates. The F500 supports operations in IT networks, enabling ready access to data and images. Measurement images are stored for future use in checking measurement accuracy for quality control, for ongoing analysis and for attachment to reports. The F500 vision sensor is available from stock priced at $15,000.
