Vision system design is critical to performance
John Stamos, 10-22-2012
How your vision system is designed will play a large part in determining how easy the system will be to set up on your production line. Some vision systems can be downright clunky – Their X, Y and Θ dimensions simply do not fit the space and this really limits the areas in which the system can be deployed. Also, most vision systems require external lighting to be effective – this adds bulk and cost. If the external lighting requires a power source, the space and cost required to provide it can create even more of a challenge.
A system with a right angle design and a slim profile is one of the easiest to set up. If the system includes ethernet, IO and light connectors the system becomes even more streamlined. A vision system with integrated lighting and field-replaceable autofocus optics delivers the ultimate in ease of set-up on the production line.
