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.
