Presence sensing

Thursday, 17 March, 2005 | Supplied by:

Cognex has released Checker 101, a simple-to-use and inexpensive sensor that can visually detect the presence of items during the manufacturing process.

Checking for the presence or absence of multiple items - such as the cap and the label on a bottle, or the straws on drink packs - is one of the most common tasks in manufacturing. With Checker, manufacturers will be able to easily and cost-effectively inspect 100% of products at each stage of production. And, because Checker can analyse over 400 images each second, it can keep up with even the fastest manufacturing operations.

Checker's compact design provides illumination, optics, sensor, processor, memory and I/O, all fully integrated in a single industrial-grade package about the size of a mobile phone. In addition, Checker can automatically detect when a product is ready to be inspected; because of that, it doesn't require an external trigger, even for products in continuous motion at high speed, as do all other vision sensors and systems.
