The shape of things to come

The shape of things to come Quality assembly requires correct components presented in the right orientation. Checking is now easier with the new Dualis contour sensor from IFM Electronic. Housed in a rugged 42x42x43mm die-cast industrial casing, the Dualis contour sensor is a compact and cost-effective 2D sensor ideal for a multitude of quality control tasks. The device recognises up to 32 contours of the object or objects, allowing badly moulded parts, missing parts, or parts presented incorrectly to be detected immediately. All the Dualis needs to operate is a backlight, also available from IFM, with wizard software making it easy to set up the system in a few simple steps. Available in three different sizes, the backlights are only 9.2mm thick, so mounting space is not a problem. The whole system, sensor and backlight, can be supplied for visible red light or infrared to match the application, and different object sizes can be checked, over distances of up to 400mm. IFM has put together a limited number of starter kits with everything you need to trial the system for yourself. You get a sensor, backlight, trigger switch, unrestricted software, and even a power supply, all for a very attractive price. The sensor and backlight are standard so they can be fitted on the line after you’ve finished your evaluation.
