The Ivu Plus TG and Ivu Plus BCR (Bar Code Reader) from Banner Engineering is designed to deliver an affordable, flexible solution for a number of industries and applications.

Dynamic new features including Ethernet connectivity, multiple inspection storage and a sort sensor (TG only) – all without the need of a PC to configure – make the Plus models an optimal solution for environments requiring connectivity, rapid product changeover or sorting capabilities.

Equipped with three discrete communication channels over Ethernet or Serial interfaces and a faster processor, both the Ivu Plus TG and Ivu Plus BCR models can export data, such as inspection and image results, to HMIs and PCs at a much greater speed.

The Command Channel and Data Export channels support remote control and results, while the image-export channel exports image data.

A 2.7in (68.5mm) LCD Color Integrated Display comes standard with the integrated models, while the remote versions feature a 3.5in (88.9mm) display.

The remote models provide a solution for applications where the sensor location makes it difficult to use an integrated display such as inaccessible, wet or dirty environments.

The Ivu Plus TG has four different sensor types that include: area, which ensures that some feature, or features, are present on a part; blemish, which finds flaws on a part, such as scratches on a disc; match, which verifies that a pattern, shape or part in any orientation matches a reference pattern; and sort, the newest sensor type, which recognises and sorts different patterns such as nuts, bolts and washers.

The sort function allows users to train the sensor to distinguish between as many as 10 patterns.

Combined with Ethernet connectivity, the Ivu Plus TG vision sensor allows for the quick introduction of new patterns and rapid product changeover.

Meanwhile, the Ivu Plus BCR reads and optionally validates data within Datamatrix (ECC200 barcodes) and several linear barcodes, such as Code 128, Codabar and Pharmacode.

With the support of Ethernet connectivity, the Ivu Plus BCR sensor also has the ability to remotely update the data used for validation from anywhere on the Ethernet network.

Plus, both the TG and BCR models are now able to store up to 30 inspections.

Each of the models is housed in an IEC IP67-rated sensor housing, making them rugged and versatile.

The camera acquires up to 100 frames per second and the integrated ring lights are available in red, green, blue, white and infrared.

With USB 2.0 output, users can save and load configuration data, and, using the emulator, they can perform offline editing, thus potentially increasing productivity and reducing costs.
