ITASCA, Ill., March 16, 2012 — The IV Vision Sensor from Keyence Corp. of America combines some of the functionality of machine vision and traditional sensors in a single system. The multipurpose sensor can handle a variety of difficult presence-detection applications.
Setup is easy and fast, taking approximately 1 min using the software’s “Easy Navigation” function. The sensor accommodates difficult detection applications that previously required multiple conventional or proximity sensors.
Standard equipment includes high-intensity illumination, lenses and a selection of eight sensor heads to produce sharp, clear and stable images. The IV camera selection includes close-, medium- and long-range models. The sensor complies with the IP67 enclosure rating, which is based on IEC/JIS standards. It can be used safely in dusty or wet environments.
It has applications in the semiconductor, electrical, electronics, automotive, food, pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries. Features include automatic focus, automatic one-touch brightness adjustment, a quad lens, output adjustment, remote operation, a statistics function and a pattern tool for stable detection.
The Navigator software can be used with any PC for quick setup. The auto tuning function enables automatic optimization of threshold and parameters to further simplify and reduce setup time.
Additional illumination accessories and utilities include dome lights, a high-speed/high-dynamic-range function and polarizing filters to eliminate glare.
