Vision sensor

April 25, 2014
The BVS Universal Vision Sensor offers 360° part-position detection, defect finding, contour-based counting and matching, bar-code reading, and optical character verification (OCV). The device has a serial port, digital I/O, and a 360° algorithm for performance comparable to higher-priced vision systems.
The BVS Universal Vision Sensor offers 360° part-position detection, defect finding, contour-based counting and matching, bar-code reading, and optical character verification (OCV). The device has a serial port, digital I/O, and a 360° algorithm for performance comparable to higher-priced vision systems.

The sensor reads multiple codes at once and is extremely fast — up to 40 codes/sec can be located, read, and verified in any orientation. The OCV function verifies printed sequences of characters and numbers such as batch numbers or minimum shelf-life dates.

The sensor is available with a 6, 8, and 12-mm lens and either a built-in visible red or infrared ring light. It also has a 640 × 480 resolution with pnp digital outputs, the ability to trigger an external light source, and an RS-232 serial port.
