The iVu SeriesTG image sensor is said to combine qualities of photoelectric and vision sensors. It has a touchscreen with an intuitive interface and easy-to-configure inspection parameters. Three advanced sensor types — a match sensor, area sensor, and an area sensor that adjusts with motion — come in one package.

Features of the sensor include: no PC required to configure, change, or monitor; menu-driven tools guide setup; an intuitive interface; software emulator for offline programming; housing is available with or without a variety of integrated ring lights — red, blue, green, and infrared; 68.5-mm LCD touchscreen display; 752 × 480 CMOS imager, onboard help functions; adjustable focus lenses; and an onboard USB port for upload/download to USB drive.
