Vision sensor for robot guidance

The new FQ-M vision sensor for guiding pick-and-place robots offers built-in motion tracking and EtherCAT/Ethernet for easy integration into any environment. This smart camera has a processing speed of 5,000 pieces per minute, even with full 360-deg rotation. The FQ-M combines a camera, image processing functionality and flexible communications options into a single compact package. It measures just 110x75x50mm. The FQ-M is easily configured for guidance of dynamic pick-and-place robots using Omron's Sysmac Studio software, and is complemented by the palm-sized TouchFinder console for local monitoring and access to functions and settings.
