Vision sensor

April 5, 2012

Developed to meet the needs of pick-and-place applications, the Omron compact FQ-M vision sensor has a processing speed of 5,000 pieces/min., even with full 360° rotation. The sensor comes with Ethernet and EtherCAT embedded for integration into any environment, and includes an incremental encoder for tracking and calibration. A contour-based search algorithm enables object detection, regardless of changing lighting conditions, reflection, object inclination and overlapped or partially hidden objects. It outputs position coordinates and the corresponding encoder values, and manages the object queue so no coordinates are duplicated.
