The VA15 defines a new standard for entry level machine vision solutions. This smart, full-featured machine vision system comes equipped with CCD sensors and combines performance, ease-of-use and flexible integration. Its capabilities enable it to tackle a broad range of industrial vision applications.
Unlike its traditional smart camera counterparts, the VA15 incorporates the "smarts" inside the camera controller, as opposed to the camera head. This has the benefit of easier integration since it can be positioned in a chassis alongside other industrial automation controllers. With its smaller camera size it is flexible to install and is suitable for tight-fit machine vision applications.
Interfacing the VA15 is a snap. The small VA15 body is fully equipped with industrial grade opto-isolated inputs and outputs that are wired using removable screw terminal connectors. A visible LED light is coupled to each connection, reflecting the active state of the signal. The I/O port, together with all external interfaces, is conveniently accessible on the front of the unit facing the user.
Easy-to-use machine vision software is pre-installed and ready to run, thus eliminating installation and revision control problems. The unit is accessed and setup through a standard ethernet link to a laptop or PC on the local network. Configuration of the machine vision software is guided by bullet options, sliders and simple dialogs that are designed for non-vision factory floor personnel. Once configured the unit runs autonomously and can be maintained by operators. Inspections can be monitored remotely from any computer with access privileges.
The VA15 machine vision toolset is well equipped and suitable for a range of quality control applications, including assembly verification, part identification, measurements, flaw detection and object location.
