Sensors solve repetitive inspection tasks quickly and objectively

Vision sensors are a category of machine vision system designed to perform simple error-proofing applications, such as presence/absence inspections, and deliver pass/fail results in unstructured environments. Vision sensors combine a camera’s ability to take pictures with the processing power of a computer to make decisions about a manufactured part or product, including position, quality, and completeness.

Vision sensors can detect specific parts within a wide region of interest and can do so dynamically as parts move along the line. Vision sensors can detect their targets by pattern, feature, and color. Most sensors typically support several communications protocols in order to communicate with upstream and downstream equipment and notify systems whether a part is present or passes inspection.
