Courtesy: FestoFesto's SBSI series of low cost vision sensors are designed for code reading and inspection. The SBSI vision sensor is designed to make it easy for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to incorporate the power of vision sensing into their solutions. SBSI sensors can be ordered as components, parts of a sub-system ready for assembly, or incorporated into a plug and play module.

The SBSI-B reads 1-D and 2-D codes. These code readers can be used to identify and track and trace products for production flow, logistics, and serialization. The SBSI-B can also read direct part marking (DPM) codes, including both laser etched and dot-peened codes, and can check for the quality of a DPM code. The SBSI-B reads up to 10 codes per image. SBSI-B readers are ideal for automated solutions in the food and beverage, automotive, and electronics industries. Medical and laboratory equipment manufacturers can also utilize these cost effective readers for sample/vial barcode identification.

The SBSI-Q for quality inspection can be used for completeness and presence sensing to ensure all relevant parts are mounted and/or accounted for. For example, the sensor can determine whether a blister pack of tablets is complete or a package label printed correctly. Position checking can verify if caps are correctly mounted or screws and holes are in the right position. Fill level control can ascertain that the correct amount of liquid, powder, or pills are in a bottle. The SBSI-Q can compare an object's contour with taught-in reference contour, and can compare patterns and evaluate pixels within the search area by calculating contrast, brightness, or variations in gray scale.
