Automation Automation Balluff vision sensor

Balluff BVS-E sensor designed to tackle almost all inspection tasks.

14-Feb-Balluff-sensor-625Balluff launched its BVS-E Universal vision sensor, which integrates processing electronics, lighting and two digital outputs in a single device.

In addition to inspecting a large number of characteristics in one pass, the sensor can also simultaneously check brightness, compare contrasts, count edges, check positions, detect patterns and read codes at speed. New tools such include a 360° contour, barcode and data matrix check as well as the option of counting and checking contours. Check results are issued either as an OK or error signal via the digital outputs or the RS 232/Ethernet interface. The position of the detected part can be transmitted to a PLC or robot control, for example, so that the part can be aligned for subsequent process steps.

The device can locate up to 40 barcodes and data matrix codes per second, and then read and verified independently of their position. The code data is available for further processing via an interface. In addition, an optical character verification (OCV) function can verify printed sequences of characters and numbers such as batch numbers or minimum shelf life dates.

The BVS-E Universal vision sensor is available with different lens versions. Integral red light or infrared LED lights illuminate the image area. The power supply and peripherals are connected via two M 12 connections.
