The Inspector I20, available from Sick , is the newest member of the Inspector family. With its exchangeable lens concept, new output logic solution and expandable IO, Inspector I20 can solve a wider range of applications. The Inspector series consists of compact, easy-to-use, and reliable 2D Vision sensors with integrated lighting, image evaluation and Ethernet interface.
The Inspector I20 devices were designed to solve a diverse range of applications. They are capable of checking parts in any orientation and position and a predictable response time. The vision sensor’s robust design is suitable for difficult applications and its intelligent and fast evaluation algorithms enable InspectorI20 to keep up with high process speeds.
Inspector I20 allows easy replacement of optical lenses for different distances and fields of view while maintaining a high enclosure rating (IP67). This, together with integrated lighting, makes the Inspector I20 convenient for both end users and system integrators who want to solve a large number of different applications using only one kind of device.
Logical output options are available in the Inspector I20. With simple and/or logic, multiple inspections can be combined to give the end user detailed feedback. These inspection results can be used for sorting based on defects or for detailed control of other process steps in the production chain, for example.
Extended I/O support is available through an external I/O box. With the IO box, it will be possible to extend the number of outputs from 3 to 16. All of the outputs can be user defined with logical operations or be used for single inspection results. Moreover, the IO box enables more inputs as well. Input selection up to 16 taught reference objects is now possible without compromising other input functions such as trigger, encoder and teach control.
