Courtesy: BalluffBalluff's BVS-E Universal vision sensor features integral processing electronics, lighting and two digital outputs for inspection tasks and stock management.

The BVS Universal can inspect a large number of characteristics in one pass and also simultaneously perform various tasks such as checking brightness, comparing contrasts, counting edges, checking positions, detecting patterns and reading codes at speed. Additional tools like a 360° contour, barcode and data matrix check are available as well as the option of counting and checking contours offer virtually unlimited application possibilities.

The result of the check is issued either as an OK or error signal via the digital outputs or the RS 232/Ethernet interface. The position of the detected part can be transmitted to a PLC or robot control, for example, so that the part can be aligned for subsequent process steps.

The universal device can locate up to 40 barcodes and data matrix codes per second, and then read and verified independently of their position. The code data is available for further processing via an interface.

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 BVS-E Universal vision sensor is available with different lens versions. Powerful integral red light or infrared LED lights illuminate the image area. The power supply and peripherals are connected via two industry proven M12 connections.

The ConVIS software runs on Windows XP and Windows 7 and also offers the option of storing up to 10,000 inspection images on the computer for troubleshooting purposes.
