Courtesy: BalluffBalluff's BVS Universal Vision Sensor is designed for assembly and presence control, reading and verification of codes, and advanced part position detection with a 360 degree algorithm. The BVS Universal Vision Sensor is able to read, locate, and verify up to 40 codes per second in any orientation. 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 Balluff BVS Universal Vision Sensor is now available in a 6 mm, 8 mm and 12 mm lens version with either a built-in visible red or infrared ring light. It is available in a 640x480 sensor resolution with PNP digital outputs, the ability to trigger an external light source and an RS232 serial port, and still provides an Ethernet TCP/IP port for PC based configuration.
