WATERLOO, Ontario, Canada — The BOA2 smart camera from Teledyne Dalsa Inc. is a complete vision system for automating parts and assembly inspection.
It is offered with 2-, 3- or 5-MP resolution. For very high-speed applications, the CMOS sensor format can be changed to achieve inspection rates of up to 80 parts per second. The 2-MP model supports an optional integrated LED ring light with built-in collimators that provide uniform lighting across the inspection area. The sensor supports standard C-mount lenses that, together with the optional LED light, can be enclosed within a protective cover to safeguard against accidental damage or tampering.
The BOA2 is rated for use in harsh industrial environments and provides several mounting options on the front, back and side surfaces.
A 1.5-GHz dual-core processing engine allows execution of user-configured solutions. System memory resources include 2 GB of solution storage and 1 GB of program memory. Inspect Express application software supports standard factory protocols, such as EthernetIP, Profinet and Modbus for interfacing with complementary factory products and control networks. The physical interfaces include Gigabit Ethernet, RS-232 serial, and opto-isolated inputs and outputs, all of which can be connected using standard M12 factory cables. A DIN mountable breakout module is offered to simplify control panel wiring.
