Sick presents its 3D Visionary smart cameras equipped with "Nova", a versatile application for simple 3D vision checks and measurements.
Whereas 2D vision applications require complex equipment, Sick's solution provides solutions for object presence checks, filling, level measurement, etc., thanks to a compact, stand-alone 3D camera, without the need for specific vision skills.
3D cameras ready for the field
The Visionary family comprises the Visionary-T Mini AP time-of-flight model and the Visionary-S AP color stereovision model. These cameras with IP67 industrial housings feature on-board intelligence for direct decision-making (digital I/O) and communication of results via Ethernet TCP/IP.
The Visionary-T Mini AP is capable of capturing the environment with great reliability, even in the presence of strong light-dark contrasts, at a range of up to 13 meters. Its extremely short image acquisition time also enables precise data to be collected, even on moving objects.
The Visionary-S AP, meanwhile, is aimed at shorter-range applications (2.5m), with increased resolution and the addition of a color image.
An intuitive interface
Visionary-T Mini AP and S-AP cameras are easily configured via a multilingual webserver graphic interface: eliminating the need to manage access to specific software.
Applications are solved by configuring a selection of tools available for image analysis, while a 3D display allows dynamic visualization of the results of each tool.
Users can easily add standard and customized tools.
A complete, versatile application
With their Presence Inspection Toolset, SensorApp Nova Visionary-T Mini and S easily solve presence and measurement checks with their 3D vision tools in factory, logistics and process automation applications. This ensures that the desired objects are present and correctly positioned, and that unwanted/foreign objects are reliably detected.
Presence Inspection Toolset includes tools for 3D shape location, level measurement, fill control, object counting and color control for the Visionary-S AP color stereovision camera.
In addition, specific inspection needs can be quickly solved with customized "plug-in" tools, easily created by anyone with a Sick AppSpace license.
