Inspector I40-IR: Powerful Part Inspection Using Infrared Light

Light is a crucial component in vision. With the correct lighting, details of interest on the part are emphasized – providing a high-quality image for analysis. The Inspector family provides full flexibility with integrated light, “Flex” window options or external solutions to match illumination needs.

The new Inspector infrared variants are designed to meet a new set of vision inspection challenges. They offer features that greatly benefit different applications, such as reducing color dependency and providing safe inspection in unwanted visible light production. The invisible infrared light allows in a simple yet highly efficient way a maximum degree of independence from color. This constitutes a particular benefit for, among others, the detection of black contours on multicolored objects. Using infrared light in combination with the optional visible block filter, is the easiest and most cost-effective method to gain immunity to changes in environmental lighting. In addition, IR has the quality to be invisible for the human eye. This is beneficial in open production areas where operators are working next to the sensor.

The infrared variants also inherit all of the qualities from the Inspector I20 and I40, such as a well-designed tool set for part inspection and easy-to-use connectivity possibilities.

The new Inspector PI50, makes inspection and integration solutions possible that are generally associated only with smart cameras. Viewing of the images and change of configuration takes place by means of a standard web browser. Integration into the automation and fieldbus environment of machines is effected via Ethernet TCP/IP or Ethernet/IP and the web API allows users to customize the HMI. This is very convenient for many machine builders and system integrators. In addition, the new calibration ensures reliable images even in tight and tilted setups where the image would otherwise be distorted.The Inspector PI50, with a speed of up to 50 Hz, is used, among other things, for inspecting and positioning of components in the automotive and consumer goods industry or in electronics and solar manufacturing.
