Omron's New F210 Vision Sensor Sysem Offers Speed And High Performance
SCHAUMBURG, IL (September 2, 2003)—The new F210 high-speed vision sensor introduced by Omron combines image acquisition as fast as 1.4 ms with advanced measurement algorithms for faster measurement and inspection operations. The F210 can perform measurement cycles of as fast as 3ms when used with the Omron F160-S2 double speed camera. The system features Omron’s QUEST algorithm for superior OCR/OCV capability and new Edge Code technology for unmatched defect detection, position and location capability. The Edge Code defect detector can be used for detecting precise defects of parts on a conveyor, like scratches on a ceiling surface. The OCR/OCV capability can read and confirm lot codes on pill bottles. A Fine Matching algorithm enables detection of differences between a user-taught model and a live image, including fine defects on labels that less accurate algorithms cannot catch.

The F210 also features productivity tools. The Intelligent Light Source (ILS) controls the light source intensity and direction and can also save the settings internally. The F210 does internal trending for statistical process control and tolerance monitoring.

The F210 is available with two cameras for multi-angle inspections and/or wide-area field of view measurements. The F210 system is ideal for packaging inspection applications, especially in high-speed food and drug operations, and in automotive assembly line and part inspection. It can also be used effectively in material handling, pharmaceutical, robotic guidance and electronics applications.

The F210 vision sensor controller is currently available from stock at a cost of $5,000. All existing Omron F150 and F160 cameras and accessories are also compatible.
