Low-cost vision sensor

02 February 2016

Teledyne DALSA has introduced a low cost sensor that is said to easy to integrate into vision solutions for quality inspections on the factory floor.

The IP67 rated BOA Spot vision sensors are suited to use in a range of error-proofing applications. The combine the power and flexibility of a BOA vision system with integrated LED lighting, lens cover, and easy to use software which promises high value capabilities and a low cost of ownership. 

Available with 640 x 480 or 1280 x 960 image resolution, BOA Spot vision sensors can inspect multiple part features at the same time, at higher speeds and with greater accuracy than traditional photoelectric sensors, according to the company. Embedded vision tools for part locating, feature finding, counting and measuring applications, provide a simple graphic user interface and can be combined and used numerous times to solve simple or complex inspection tasks. 

Inspections using BOA Spot vision sensors can be triggered by parts in motion or from a PLC after being moved into a stationary position. Standard factory protocols, such as Ethernet/IP and PROFINET, are directly supported for communicating with third-party equipment or the factory enterprise.
