Banner: Sealed Vision Sensors in Harsh IP68 Environments

Tuesday 17 April 2007

Banner Engineering Corp. announces that the PresencePLUS® Pro vision sensor now features a compact, metal, IP68-rated camera, with the option of an integrated light or lens cover. The sealed, IP68-rated Pro accurately and reliably performs advanced machine vision inspections in challenging industrial and washdown environments. A sealed camera with a full-featured controller is priced as low as $2580.

“Our IP68-rated vision cameras allow them to be located anywhere that water, dust and other contaminants might normally be a problem for general vision products,” said Dan Holste, director for Banner vision sensors. “Pair the camera with one of our powerful controllers featuring a comprehensive suite of inspection tools and you have an easy-to-apply, vision inspection solution of extraordinary sophistication for significantly less than comparable systems.”

Applications. The rugged camera is designed for use in dirty industrial environments including automotive, assembly, printing, food handling and packaging.

The PresencePLUS Pro incorporates a remote camera with a controller. All controllers include the powerful suite of gray scale tools—including Locate, Pattern Find and Count, Geometric Find and Count, Edge, Object, Blob and Average Gray Scale—that deliver extraordinary precision and versatility, for the most demanding inspections. Color models also offer the Color Match tool to inspect for a specific color or color range taught to the sensor.

A family of affordable vision sensors. Banner’s PresencePLUS Pro and PresencePLUS P4 OMNI vision sensors deliver affordable full-featured image-based inspection capabilities—at an unprecedented price. The P4 AREA, P4 GEO, P4 EDGE and P4 BCR dedicated-function sensors offer specific tools for solving the most common inspection challenges. One reason Banner’s PresencePLUS vision sensor products are so successful is because they share a user interface that many consider the easiest to use on the market today. It is available in nine languages: English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish. With the PresencePLUS’s intuitive interface, even operators with only basic computer skills can easily set up an inspection.
