COMPACT IP68 VISION SENSOR FOR WET
A compact, full-featured vision sensor housed in an IP68-rated enclosure for dependable performance in wet and dirty environments has been introduced by Banner Engineering. The new IP68 PresencePLUS Pro II Waterproof Camera is the only unit of its kind with a separate DIN-mountable controller that can be placed at a distance from the harsh conditions. This allows the camera and its integrated light to be significantly smaller than comparable units. It also assures that firmware and programming are preserved in the event of a catastrophic failure at the camera location.
The rugged camera is designed for use in dirty industrial environments including automotive painting and assembly, metal stamping, injection molding and others. It is also appropriate for use in bottling and food packaging facilities. Applications include 360° fixture-free inspection, error proofing, assembly verification, pattern recognition, flaw detection, orientation confirmation, fill level detection, and others. 2D and 1D bar code reading capability is available.
All features of Banner Engineering’s new Pro II system are included in the IP68 model. These include a wide range of location, vision and analysis tools, higher capture speed and fast image processing. Models feature gray scale or color digital imagers with resolutions up 1.3 megapixels. All models feature Active X utilities and connect directly to industrial standard Ethernet networks for exporting data, inspections and images. A wide choice of standard C-mount lenses accommodates extensive field of view and distance requirements. Purchasers may select integrated lights with bright, flashing or continuous LED illumination in infrared, red, blue, green or white.
Intuitive PresencePLUS software assures quick set-up and easy point-and-click operation. The Remote TEACH function allows rapid configuration. Connectivity includes 10/100 Ethernet, serial, IP and Modbus TCP industrial networks.
Banner Engineering is one of the world's leading manufacturers of vision sensors, photoelectric and ultrasonic sensors, fiber optic assemblies, machine guarding systems, and precision measurement and inspection systems. The company provides local application support worldwide.
