Festo SBRD smart camera system simplifies optical inspection applications.
Festo released its SBRD smart camera system, comprised of three elements: 5 megapixels USB cameras (monochrome or colour); a space-optimized controller with two camera interfaces; and the Camera Configuration Studio (CCS) image processing software. The fanless remote head controller is designed for multi-camera tasks and has a dual core processor and PROFINET communications.
The two camera interfaces allow inspections to be carried out from several different perspectives with large fields of view. With the CCS software, users can configure inspection programs and define, log and adjust all processes from image recording to the input and output parameters – and simulate them in advance on the PC. The software processes images using image analysis and image lists rather than individual images.
