OMRON has announced the global release of its new FHV7-series Smart Camera combined with illumination and image processing functionality for advanced vision inspections. Thanks to the world’s first multi-colour light and a best-in-class 12-megapixel high-resolution camera, only a single FHV7-series Smart Camera is required for achieving the industry’s highest standards of precision in vision inspections on a high-mix production line.
This FHV7 high-performance smart camera makes it possible to easily adopt advanced vision inspection in manufacturing processes. Equipped with a multi-colour light and an autofocus lens, the FHV7 Series can respond flexibly to changes in the colour and size of objects to be inspected. This eliminates the need for special skills for camera installation and adjustment to cater for different products and inspection criteria, even in a flexible production line where many different types of products are produced in different quantities.
Included in the features is a high-speed image compression algorithm that compresses inspection images at double*3 the regular speed, enabling all image data to be saved even during measurement and allowing complete traceability in production processes where quality control is paramount.
The modular structure enables simple configuration for a wide range of application. Lens and lights can be combined to meet with the most versatile and demanding application while not effecting the footprint of the camera.
