The new Inspector infrared variants from SICK
are designed to meet a new set of vision inspection challenges. It offers features that greatly benefit different applications, such as reducing colour dependency and providing safe inspection in unwanted visible light production.
Viewing of the images and change of configuration takes place by means of a standard web browser. Integration into the automation and fieldbus environment of machines is effected via Ethernet (TCP/IP) or EtherNet / IP and the web API allows users to customize the HMI.
Other key advantages of the intelligent vision solution are:
- compact and user friendly connectivity
- reliable sensors
- IR sensors are invisible, therefore beneficial in open production areas
- speed of up to 50Hz
The infrared variants also inherit all of the qualities from the Inspector I20 and I40, such as a well-designed tool set for part inspection and easy-to-use connectivity possibilities.
According to SICK, using infrared light with optional visible block filter is the easiest and most cost effective method to gain immunity to changes in environmental lighting.
