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.
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.
Conventional camera-based vision systems and light section sensors can be applied to range of applications. While vision systems are a more traditional solution, they can be expensive and complex for simple presence or absence detection tasks. In contrast, light section technology is a more economical alternative that offers a simple “yes/no” result for detection, monitoring, or protection applications. Whether for advanced measurement tasks, part verification, or profile comparison, these technologies can provide the results you need for your application.
