Munich, Germany - Like the human eye, Xpectia from Omron Electronics can identify objects of any colour and size at any distance. It also features an easy to use touch screen, and many automatic functions that make the implementation of vision systems fast and straightforward. Because the vision systems use a true colour system that is capable of sensing 16 million colours, they deliver results that are more accurate and stable than those provided by conventional monochrome or colour systems. In addition, the often complicated task of selecting colour filters is completely eliminated.
Simple to use vision system even for complex applications
The system also provides high resolution, with 2 MPixel UXGA cameras. This makes it possible to inspect small and large characteristics of the target at the same time, and to find small defects on large objects " tasks that are virtually impossible with standard resolution cameras.
Facilities are also offered for three-dimensional inspection, either alone or in conjunction with two-dimensional inspection. As a result, workpieces with complex shapes that prevent them from being laid flat are easy to measure. Inspection sequences and decision trees can easily be implemented, along with application specific software packages. Omron also offers simulation software that can be used to evaluate the feasibility of applications, and to perform configuration off-line, thereby reducing the start-up time for new systems. The vision system is available with a range of controllers, including versions with integrated touch screen interfaces, which can support up to four cameras.
