Vision capability but sensor simplicity

Vision capability but sensor simplicity
The BVS vision sensor from Balluff combines vision capability and photoelectric sensor simplicity, providing reliable error proofing and quality inspection anywhere. It can be used like a sensor, but provides far more functionality. Its small size at just 58x52x40mm allows the sensor to be placed virtually anywhere to provide reliable product detection, part configuration and dimensional and/or position confirmation.

With its black-and-white CMOS image sensor (640x480 pixels) it detects specified features regardless of location anywhere within the capture range. Up to seven inspection tasks - such as counting edges, checking brightness, comparing contrasts, checking contours, detecting patterns and finding positions - can all be handled simultaneously with a detection rate of up to 15Hz.
