Vision Control introduced the S24 family of vision sensors. Simple to use teach-in operation makes possible reliable input of all necessary parameters over the digital inputs, by which the sensors can be quickly and simply connected.

The use of PLC levels allows problem free integration into automation equipment. The new S24 series allows the inspection of up to 20 parts per second. This clearly demonstrates the superior capabilities of compact Machine Vision sensors, compared with simple optical sensors such as light barriers, as they are based on Machine Vision algorithms.

The sensors are accommodated in a compact, robust housing and comprise a DSP-based Machine Vision unit, a matched and pre-set lens as well as a fine-tuned LED ring light. With the choice of functions installed at the factory, the standard hardware can be used as Pattern matching sensor; Measurement control sensor; Position sensor; Roundness sensor; and Angle sensor.

Image acquisition is based on a CCD chip, which can resolve detail down to 0.05 mm. The full-frame shutter adjusts to the ambient lighting. The S24 series Machine Vision sensors are an inexpensive, uncomplicated and rapid way of getting into Machine Vision for a large group of users who, up until now, have only used simple optical sensors.
