Vision Sensors Accurately Detect Infinite Color Variations


Banner Engineering Corp. introduces PresencePLUS® COLOR vision sensors for detecting an infinite number of color variations accurately—even in the most challenging color inspection applications. These color vision sensors are available in two convenient packages: the two-piece PresencePLUS Pro COLOR with separate DIN-mountable controller and the one-piece PresencePLUS P4 COLOR OMNI. PresencePLUS COLOR vision sensors are available starting at only $3,495. “Users can easily program the sensor to detect a specific color and unlimited color variations in the camera’s field of view,” said Dan Holste, director for Banner vision sensors. “The sensor can combine shape and color data to identify minute variations, and it can also monitor color consistency within the taught range of acceptable color.” Holste adds, “The two housing platforms—along with the robust inspection tools and capabilities—provide an easy-to-use full-featured application solution for a wide range of industries and machinery.” Applications. The Pro COLOR and P4 COLOR OMNI vision sensors inspect for the specific color taught to the sensor with the Color Match tool. The new sensors are appropriate for thousands of color sensitive applications in food and general packaging, pharmaceutical, electronic and automotive industries. Examples include the following: °Candy and packaging inspection °Assembled-product color inspection and verification °Error proofing of fuse installation in an automotive fuse box °Pharmaceutical blister pack inspection °Bottling cap and fill inspection### The Pro features a compact camera with separate DIN-mountable controller. Sealed Pro IP68-rated cameras are available for challenging industrial and washdown environments. The one-piece P4 is available in both in-line and right-angle configurations. In addition to the Color Match tool, all models include the powerful suite of gray scale tools—including Locate, Pattern Find and Count, Geometric Find and Count, Edge, Object, Blob and Average Gray Scale—for the most demanding inspections. The Pro and P4 COLOR sensors have a 752 x 480 pixel resolution color CMOS imager. All models feature the PresencePLUS universal software. Several features of the Pro COLOR and P4 COLOR OMNI make it particularly easy to set up and operate: Universal software with three-step point-and-click setup Ethernet, serial and flexible discrete I/O in the same full-featured sensor Direct connectivity to EtherNet/IP and ModbusTCP industrial networks ActiveX utilities for exporting inspections, images and results Live video display without a PC Remote TEACH Complete selection of lenses, lighting, brackets and accessories 10 to 30V dc operation A family of affordable vision sensors. Banner's extensive line of PresencePLUS vision sensors include standard- and high-resolution, general-purpose and dedicated-function vision sensors, sealed IP68-rated cameras as well as lighting, lenses, brackets and other accessories. One reason Banner’s PresencePLUS vision sensor products are so successful is because they share a user interface that many consider the easiest to use on the market today. It is available in nine languages: English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish. With the PresencePLUS’s intuitive interface, even operators with only basic computer skills can easily set up an inspection.
