February 15, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
February 15, 2019 – Omron Automation Americas has released the FHV7-series smart camera featuring a multi-colour light alongside a range of image sensors.
Equipped with a multicolour light and an autofocus lens, as well as a high-resolution image sensor for wider areas of view, the FHV7 can respond to changes in the colour and size of objects to be inspected. The company says this eliminates the need for multiple cameras or manual lens adjustments and ensures compatibility with inspection criteria on lines producing many different types of products in varying quantities.
The autofocus lens covers a focal distance between 59 and 2,000 mm. The camer has a modular structure that allows the user to combine the lens and lighting variants available for use with the camera. A dual-core CPU provides image processing speeds that are four times faster than the previous generation of Omron’s smart cameras.
High-speed image logging enables image inspection to be conducted while image data is being saved.
