Sensopart’s VISOR vision sensor with advanced result processing capabilities was recognized among the best in machine vision by the judges of the Vision Systems Design 2022 Innovators Awards program.

In the global automation of industrial processes, vision sensors like the VISOR make vast numbers of decisions every second. For example, whether a part has been correctly and completely assembled, whether it is correctly positioned or whether it has been correctly identified. In many of these cases, these decisions can be brought about by a simple, logical linking of individual detector results.

These capabilities, combined with the ease of use, mean that vision sensors are becoming more and more popular with users, who are looking to solve increasingly difficult tasks as time goes on. Here, however, more complex links of detector results are necessary to achieve a safe and reliable good/bad decision.

Applications that rely on complex decisions could only be solved to date by programming the necessary operations in the PLC. With firmware update Version 2.6, the VISOR Framework receives new advanced result processing capabilities. Much more complex applications can now be evaluated with an easy-to-use vision sensor.

With the ‘Result Processing’ detector, results from other detectors can be flexibly linked and thus, for example, calculations can be performed, character strings can be processed and compared, or logical decisions can be made. The unique possibility to store and access ‘static variables’ extends the range of possible applications for low cost and easy to use vision sensors widely.

“Thanks to more than 50 integrated operators, the possibilities for processing results in VISOR are extremely diverse and go well beyond what has been offered so far in this product and price class.” said Mark Hintze, vice president of Sensopart.

“Among other things, it is possible to calculate dimensions and positions of objects or to check the contents of different codes for consistency. The VISOR can then tell the PLC, for example, whether any two holes are concentric with each other, whether the print labels on a box are always the same distance from the edge, whether part A has been mounted at the correct angle on part B, or whether the data matrix code on a drug package contains the same information as the adjacent plain text imprint.”
