Stemmer Imaging is introducing the self-contained, compact Dalsa Boa IDR smart camera package that is suitable for barcode, character and pattern identification or verification. These core capabilities enable machine builders and system integrators to ensure that all product markings are correct. The Boa IDR is also excellent for defect detection and reject tracking for high-speed applications in the automotive, consumer, electronics, packaging and pharmaceutical industries.
Complete with embedded software and processing, the Boa IDR enables manufacturers to combine 1D and 2D tracking with other inspection tasks. These include character reading (OCR) and feature verification to automatically identify, validate and verify markings or features on parts, products or assemblies.
1D and 2D capabilities include part validation and verification, part traceability and label validation in addition to 2D error proofing. OCR tools offer date, lot and product code validation, error proofing, printed text validation and label validation. Comprehensive pattern recognition facilities include label presence and placement, tamper proofing pattern verification, cap presence and placement, printed text verification, error proofing and robot guidance.
The preloaded IDR application can be quickly setup and deployed using a standard web browser interface; no software installation is necessary, except for the fully functional emulator that supports offline development and debugging. The versatile Boa IDR features a four-step user interface that is designed to guide first-time vision users, but it also incorporates advanced features such as custom scripting for experienced integrators.
Boa IDR cameras are available in a choice of resolutions and provide standard industrial Ethernet protocols for integrating into the factory network, including support for popular PLCs such as those from Rockwell Automation and Siemens. In addition to Ethernet, the Boa IDR provides serial RS-232 and discrete I/O connections, as well as expandable I/O options. A dedicated strobe output is further provided for direct light control.
