Hygienic Machine Vision-Building Kit


As the first mounting system for machine vision applications that is suitable for installing cameras, lighting, and lasers, the Hygienic Building Kit is for use in the food and pharmaceutical industries or in cleanrooms. Since imaging components can be contaminated with product residues during steam-jet cleaning of conveyor systems, they are subject to the same hygiene requirements that apply to plant components in direct contact with the product.


The camera, lighting, and laser enclosures are mounted on rails made of smooth stainless-steel rods. Hygienic T-pieces enable flexible positioning and orientation. Cable routing within the tubes not only ensures optimum protection against mechanical forces, but also eliminates the need for a separate food approval of cable materials. Alternatively, hygienic protective hoses are available for cable routing.


All gaskets as well as an acrylic window are approved for direct food contact according to FDA and EU guidelines. In addition, all components meet the strictest criteria for hygienic surface design. The kit can be mounted directly on conveyors, walls, machine covers, and ceilings. For application-specific configuration, users can shorten the available shafts to the required length and machine a hole for cable entry at the required location.
