The SelectVu vision sensor is designed to perform visual inspection using a single camera and lighting in a stainless-steel enclosure. However, a single user interface can be linked up to four SelectVu sensors upgradeable and changeable to production line demands.
The system, which can be placed over existing conveyors and has easy height adjustment, offers a small footprint, tool-less changeover and easy operation via NEMA 4X color touchscreen with icon-driven menus. Products are tracked and can be rejected from the production line by the Teledyne TapTone T4000 PC control platform.
Applications include inspection of labels, closures, tamper bands and verification of bar codes and date and lot codes; it can also check the visual fill level of clear containers.
