Checker 232

, a vision sensor that will inspect small features over a wide area and provide inspection results on the fastest production lines, detecting and inspecting up to 1,500 parts per minute.

Checker 232 is designed for applications where small features are being inspected on large parts, such as the inspection of clips and springs on large automotive assemblies, or when a much longer working distance is needed and the vision sensor must be mounted far from the area to be inspected, Cognex says.

“Customers value the simplicity and power of Checker vision sensors because they offer a very cost-effective option for inspections where traditional sensors are not reliable and a full-blown vision system is too expensive,” says Pascal Dorster, senior director, Vision Sensors Business Unit. “The Checker 232 extends the versatility of the Checker product line so customers can solve a broader range of inspection applications more effectively.”

There is no limit to the number of part features thatng and delivering precisely timed pass/fall results. The Checker 200 series is simple to set up, small enough to fit almost anywhere, and offers IP67 protection. It joins three existing 200 series models: Checker 200 for part detection, Checker 201 for part detection and inspection, and Checker 202,with ladder logic for more complex pass/fail decisions.
