VeriSens smart vision sensors are equipped with IP 69K-rated stainless steel housings, shatterproof glass, special connectors and seals that protect the devices from damage in high temperature/high pressure washdown environments.
The sensors are suitable for discrete automation applications in a range of industries, including food/beverage, pharmaceutical, medical and cosmetic processing. Using contour-based algorithms, VeriSens smart vision sensors provide edges that are more stable and reliable than those found using photometric (gray scale) methods. Using 656 x 494 pixel CCD imaging, the sensors calculate 2-D position correction and provide data on the position and angle of the target. They also perform simple measurement and location calculations. An RS485 interface communicates with a computer or control device to transmit and receive data. An Ethernet version is also available for real time remote image monitoring.
