Vision Sensors

Image processing sensor

Even inexpensive vision sensors, such as the In-Sight 2000 series from Cognex, can handle simple applications for localisation, presence and absence detection, and measurement and counting applications. Proven In-Sight image processing tools are used for these applications.

Examples of the tool range:

  • Pattern recognition
  • Edge detection
  • Pixel number recognition
  • Brightness/contrast evaluation

Volume sensors

3D sensors, such as the ifm O3D ,are used to record distances, levels and volumes. The application possibilities are almost unlimited:

  • Completeness checks
  • 3D object measurement
  • Level measurement/limit level detection (e.g. of bulk material or chip buckets)
  • Palletising/de-palletising
  • Bin picking
  • Robot guidance
