Simple solutions for challenging inspection tasks

Sensopart’s range of VISOR sensors now allows complex linking of detection results – previously reserved to much more expensive image processing systems or sophisticated PLC applications. These advanced possibilities for processing results are part of a free software upgrade.

Designed as cost-effective and versatile solutions, vision sensors can today be found in automation applications across all sectors of industry. Now Sensopart says it has remedied a shortcoming of these sensors through a software upgrade for the entire VISOR series: while vision sensors were previously only able to logically link results from individual detectors as part of an overall good/bad decision, the ‘result processing detector makes it possible to link results from previous assessments and other jobs, now allowing the identification of changes and trends over longer periods.

The detection results can be used in calculations, as well as in string or code comparisons, and allow logical decisions to be made – with a choice of more than 50 different integrated operators for the user.

The possibility of being able to store results as ‘static variables’ for use in subsequent processes and statistical evaluations significantly extends the range of applications for vision sensors. The VISOR can now detect consecutive errors and transmit a signal to the control system after a set number of errors have occurred.

Since such complex evaluations can now be carried out directly in the sensor, considerably less PLC programming work is required in many applications. The solution is simultaneously more robust as it only needs to transmit simple digital signals to the control system instead of data telegrams. This consequently also reduces integration costs: thanks to VISOR’s built-in intelligence, challenging applications can be solved with a cost-effective vision sensor.

The software upgrade 2.6 applies to the entire VISOR family and is available to Sensopart users as a free download.

Thanks to its advanced result processing function, VISOR was recognised for the third time as one of the best in machine vision by the judges of the Vision Systems Design 2022 Innovators Awards program.
