The Inspector vision sensor from Sick is designed to be an intelligent vision solution in an easy-to-use sensor package with the ability to verify completeness and quality, even if products vary in size. The sensor provides pass/fail output to ensure that only the correct product makes it through. Additionally, the sensor is built to be fast enough to keep up with quick line speeds. Applications include verifying label position, date-code presence and cap inspection in packaging, as well as bowl feeder inspection and verification of part assembly. The sensor offers a 384 × 384 resolution and an IP 67 metal housing, which is said to be suited for tough environments. It comes with an integrated dome light that delivers high-quality images even on glossy and reflective surfaces without a complex setup, the company says.
