New Cognex Feature Location Technology Offers Unmatched Performance and Speed

Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX), the world’s leader in machine vision, has introduced PatMax RedLine™, a feature-location technology that reinvents the industry-leading PatMax® pattern-matching tool by maximizing speed and performance. Available in the latest Cognex® In-Sight Explorer™ software version 5.1, PatMax RedLine technology is optimized to run on these three new In-Sight® vision systems:
  •     In-Sight 5705, the world’s fastest stand-alone 5MP vision system, for reliable inspection on high-speed production lines;
  •     In-Sight 8405, the world’s smallest stand-alone 5MP vision system, ideal in applications that require a lightweight camera or have limited mounting space; and
  •     In-Sight 5705C, the world’s only stand-alone 5MP color vision system, which addresses even the most challenging applications with advanced tools and true 24-bit color image filters.
Pattern matching represents the critical first step in most machine vision applications. Because previous tools imposed certain speed limitations, many applications resorted to lower resolution cameras to keep pace with production lines. PatMax RedLine technology performs faster on high-resolution vision systems, eliminating the tradeoff between speed and performance, and enabling customers to increase resolution and gain accuracy without sacrificing speed.

“Our customers have told us that they have an increasing need for color inspection and visualization of very small defects, even in a large field of view,” says Joerg Kuechen, Vice President and Business Unit Manager, Vision Products. “Conventional pattern-matching algorithms are too slow for these high-resolution applications, but now with the incredibly fast pattern matching of PatMax RedLine technology, our customers don’t have to compromise on performance.”

Like all In-Sight vision systems, these 5MP models are conveniently set up with In-Sight Explorer software. The In-Sight Explorer spreadsheet view provides robust and efficient system configuration and handling of vision-application data. A drag-and-drop vision tool palette and tool property sheets make the effort more intuitive. The new vision systems also employ JavaScript to greatly simplify complex and data-intensive vision tasks.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…
