Banner Engineering has launched the Ivu Plus TG sensor, an image sensor that is said to offer enhanced recognition, communication and rapid changeover capabilities.

The image sensor is suitable for a range of applications, including: packaging; material handling; robotics; assembly; automotive; food processing; pharmaceutical; electronics; metalworking; and plastics.

The Ivu Plus TG sensor has the capability to save up to 30 inspections.

It monitors labels, parts and packaging for type, size, orientation, shape and location.

Its colour touch-screen display and on-board memory allow fast and easy installation and application set-up without connection to a PC.

Ethernet communication assures compatibility with most industrial systems.

In addition, the Ivu Plus TG has a sort sensor that can recognise up to 10 different patterns within the same inspection.

Applications for this capability include identifying parts on a production line and ensuring that all required parts are present in a package.

Other functions included in the unit are: area sensor, to ensure that some features are present on a part; blemish sensor to detect flaws such as scratches or colour variation; match sensor to verify that a pattern, shape or part is identical to a reference.

Ease of use is supported by integrated lighting, adjustable focus lenses, automatic exposure control and high-speed processing.

The sensor’s housing is rated to IP67 for use in harsh environments.

A full line of external lighting solutions is available for special applications.

The Ivu Plus TG platform will soon be completed with a barcode reader and remote screen sensor.
