Vision sensor for manufacturing processes

August 2014 Sensors & Transducers

The Dualis vision sensor from ifm electronic can solve a variety of inspection and error proofing applications throughout the manufacturing process, providing the simplicity of a standard sensor and the high performance of a vision system.

Dualis is a compact, highly-durable CMOS image sensor providing reliable performance in production control. Components are detected and precisely evaluated with the sensor’s fast image capture and processing algorithm and the Ethernet interface allows quick adjustment in the system.

Applications include contour matching, sorting, verification, part/no part, orientation, object character verification, recipe and measurement. Application parameters are quickly established using the sensor’s setup wizard that guides the user through application configuration. The software can be downloaded at no cost by visiting the ifm website.

This vision sensor offers a price to performance ratio that allows it to be used throughout the plant. The sensor has a robust design and a compact metal housing to give long life and reliability in harsh industrial environments.
