The enhanced version of Omron Electronics’ Smart sensor offers colour sensing abilities that makes it suitable for many industrial applications, including manufacturing, assembly, and packaging. This Smart Vision Sensor is available though Omrons’ official distributor for Geelong and Western Victoria; Factory Controls.
The ZFV-C Smart sensor offers sensing capabilities close to human vision. Colour sensing abilities allow the device to see images invisible to monochromatic sensors and make it more reliable for inspecting complex targets.
Integrated colour filters enable sensing of only selected colours when necessary to obtain a better image.
The ZFV-C features a teach-and-go function using a colour LCD and menu to reduce inspection setup to a few steps. Screen shows a real-time image for instant feedback.
Eight functions are available in ZFV-C Smart sensor, depending on the controller used. They include counting, pattern recognition, size verification, position, brightness, width, text verification, and hue (comparing sensed colour to a referenced colour).
A snap-on system allows up to five sensors to be connected to one controller bus to perform five inspections in one pass.
