Part 4 5 Things to Look for in a Vision Sensor Flexible modular design
Feature #4: Flexible, modular design
Are you looking for a vision sensor to help with simple presence/absence inspections on your manufacturing floor? On paper, all vision sensors look like they could get the job done. But, selecting a sensor with 5 specific features will help ensure your error-proofing applications run smoothly and accurately.
When space on the production line is at a premium, it can sometimes be difficult to mount a vision sensor in the precise location to achieve the optimal field of view, image resolution and part illumination. Finding a vision sensor that is ready to go, right out-of-the-box and which fits into any space will get your inspections up and running quicker and easier. In-Sight 2000 vision sensors can be configured for in-line and right-angle mounting installation. This modular body design provides maximum flexibility to mount in limited spaces, simplifies optical paths and cable routing, and minimizes the need to design new mechanical fixtures.
