Which Applications Can Be Solved with the VOS Vision Tool Set?

Posted by Pepperl+Fuchs on Mon, Aug 02, 2021

To meet the diverse and highly complex requirements of industrial applications, users rely on a range of photoelectric sensors. The camera-based 2-D universal vision sensors of the VOS series not only close the gap between simple vision sensors and complex vision systems—they offer flexible configuration and open up the possibility for users to solve particularly complex automation tasks as well as multiple tasks with just one vision sensor. In this blog post, we will show you which software features the VOS sensors offer and the applications for which they are suitable.

Into the Future of 3-D Vision Technology with PXL+

Posted by Pepperl+Fuchs on Wed, Apr 07, 2021

In industrial vision applications, a conventional representation of 3-D point clouds in space is often no longer sufficient to precisely identify relevant object details. With the PXL+ technology developed by Pepperl+Fuchs subsidiary VMT, however, 3-D point cloud images can be enriched with any number of sensor data. Thanks to this valuable additional information, the gap between human and machine vision can be closed, allowing numerous (industrial) applications to be solved more efficiently and expanding the range of applications that can be automated.

In this blog article, we explain what stands behind the term PXL+, where the technology is already being used successfully, and the potential it offers.

Taking the Complexity out of Industrial Vision

Posted by Sam Horn on Mon, Apr 09, 2018

Is it possible to meet every requirement of an application with a single solution? It all depends on the complexity of the application. Simple applications may only need simple digital-output sensors to detect the presence or absence of a target. But what about demanding applications that involve flaw detection, high-speed target inspection, precise positioning, profile comparison, or some combination of the above?
