Leuze camera looks around the corner

March 2019 Sensors & Transducers

Manufacturing plants, packaging facilities and warehouse operations often have areas where visibility is not what it should be, and not only can these prove hazardous to both vehicles and pedestrians moving in these areas, but plant operators have limited visibility as well.

A solution, available from leading sensing solutions supplier Countapulse Controls, is the robust LCAM 408i IP camera which has been engineered for use in industrial environments. Correct positioning of the device will allow visibility into hard-to-see areas with the 5 mexapixel colour camera delivering live data stream at high image quality through its Gigabit Ethernet interface.

The housing of the robust camera is rated at IP65/67 and features an easy-to-clean glass pane. It is easily integrated into machinery or system controls via M12 connections, and requires only a 24 V power supply. Flexibility of installation is ensured through diverse mounting options including the use of dovetail, threaded holes as well as an extensive range of mounting accessories.

Configuration is simple and is accomplished via a standard browser and displayed via standard streaming tools. There is no need for additional software, and troubleshooting has been simplified in case of failure.
