The Checker® 232 Model has been added to the Checker vision sensor product line. Designed to inspect small features over a wide area, the Model 232 provides reliable inspection results on the fastest production lines, detecting and inspecting up to 1,500 parts/min. The sensor is suitable for applications where small features are being inspected on large parts, such as the inspection of clips and springs on large automotive assemblies. It is also ideal when a much longer working distance is needed and the vision sensor must be mounted far from the area to be inspected. There's no limit to the number of part features the sensor can inspect because it uses patent-pending, multi-image analysis to determine if a part is present without an external trigger, greatly simplifying installation. This capability also enables the product to track parts in varying positions along the production line, overcoming imprecise part positioning and delivering consistent, precisely timed pass/fail results, the co. states.
