Smart vision sensor targets industrial automation and inspection
Teledyne DALSA (Billerica, MA) has introduced new low-cost vision sensors for for error proofing, identification, general inspection, and robot guidance applications.

Designed for error proofing, identification, and robot guidance applications, the BOA Spot XL smart vision sensors are claimed to offer performance and capabilities that rival any product in their class. The sensors come with integrated LED lighting, lens cover, and easy-to-use application software.

Embedded vision tools include positioning, part locating, pattern matching, measuring, feature or defect detection, and identifying, including automatic reading of characters (OCR) based on a pre-trained artificial intelligence (AI) inference network. Additional features include extensive image preprocessors and advanced calibration for image correction and system coordinate mapping.

"BOA Spot XL vision sensors deliver the performance and capabilities of a sophisticated smart vision system," says Steve Geraghty, General Manager of Teledyne DALSA's Industrial Imaging Solutions US. "This latest BOA Spot model offers manufacturers the tools and integration flexibility for a wide range of automation and inspection applications."

Inspections using BOA Spot XL vision sensors can be triggered by parts in motion or from a PLC after being moved into a stationary position. Compatible protocols, such as Ethernet/IP and PROFINET, provide standard languages for communicating with third party equipment or the factory enterprise.

The BOA Spot XL vision sensors are available in thru- and surface-mounting options and feature a slim form factor enabling automation and system developers to position the BOA Spot XL in tight places. The BOA Spot XL is available immediately.
