THE new PresencePLUS P4 OMNI and P4 OMNI 1.3 vision sensors from Banner Engineering Corp. combine all P4 vision inspection and analysis tools into one self-contained housing.
Available from Micromax Pty Ltd , the complete range of tools - including GEO, Gray Scale, Blob, Edge, Object and optional Bar Code Reader - makes it easy to robustly inspect for multiple features.
The P4 OMNI offers 640 x 480 pixel resolution for accurate analysis at high speeds and the P4 OMNI 1.3 features 1280 x 1024 resolution for extra detail or extended sensing field of view.
The P4 OMNI offers a complete set of vision tools to solve thousands of inspection challenges according to Banner.
One do-it-all sensor is convenient for customers who want to add vision inspection technology to several processes of their operation. Users can quickly switch between applications without changing sensors.
The P4 OMNI and P4 OMNI 1.3 allow users to accurately solve many different factory applications, making them ideal for a wide range of applications including:
* Establish that products are correctly oriented for robots to handle in an automatic feed work cell
* Eliminate rejects before they have been assembled or packaged
* Verify the presence and placement of all clips, bolts and nuts in an automotive trim panel
* Ensure the correct number of holes are punched into a sheet of metal
* Provide traceability in assembly operations.
The P4 OMNI and P4 OMNI 1.3 are easy to install and use. Remote TEACH allows the sensors to learn new features to inspect without connecting to a PC or shutting down the production line.
The device’s built-in live video output allows users to view the sensor's inspections in real time and to view failed inspection images without a PC.
The P4 OMNI family interfaces to machinery or factory networks through a built-in 10/100 ethernet connection or RS-232 serial input/outputs.
The compact, self-contained P4 OMNI and P4 OMNI 1.3 are available with two lens positions: in-line (on the end of the housing) and right-angle (on the side of the housing).
Both versions measure only 66.8mm wide - the in-line model is 136.1mm long and the right-angle model is just 124.5mm long.
The included mounting brackets make it easy to attach the P4 OMNI and P4 OMNI 1.3 sensors to machines or conveyors.
The units include three bi-colour LED indicators that clearly show unit status during setup and operation.
Models operate on 10 to 30V dc. Banner also offers hundreds of lighting and lensing options to solve even the most challenging applications.
