MicroHAWK smart cameras simplify code reading and inspection

October 2020 Sensors & Transducers

Omron’s powerful MicroHAWK V/F400 and V/F300 Series smart cameras simplify applications by offering the possibility to combine code reading and vision inspection into a single, highly compact device. These cameras are suitable for the pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries, as well as commodities where serialisation with a combination of track and trace is important.

Bundling multiple capabilities in one, the V/F400 and V/F300 Series lower hardware costs and minimise the work required for commissioning and maintenance. Powerful technologies such as liquid lens autofocus options and a high-resolution 5-megapixel colour camera ensure exceptional precision while promoting greater flexibility in production line layouts.

The cutting-edge autofocus technology ensures that the camera can reliably inspect products that vary in size, shape, colour or desired inspection type. In addition, Omron’s advanced X-Mode algorithms allow reading of any code on damaged, shiny, curved or otherwise textured materials, minimising downtime and keeping production moving smoothly.

The compact size of the V/F400 and V/F300 Series makes it easy to embed them within space-constrained equipment or mount them on small robots. Their wide variety of communication interfaces includes Ethernet/IP and Profinet for added flexibility.
