SICK UK has launched the Inspector I20 2D vision sensor, offering greater detail precision for short/wide- or long-distance inspections.

It features integral lighting, powerful processing, Ethernet communications and industrial IP67-protected metal housing.

The Inspector I20 can be rapidly reconfigured to suit application needs.

The user can exchange lenses for a wider field of view or for inspecting smaller objects at up to 1,000mm, with corresponding variations in field of view between 350mm and 150mm.

A high resolution is retained at high speed for accuracy and rapid image processing.

The Inspector I20 offers users the opportunity to define output logic and extend its quality control performance with greater functionality.

This ensures that the I20 will deliver inspection results in a format that is immediately usable, with data that can be incorporated directly into a customer’s control and reporting requirements.

The Inspector I20 offers extended I/O functionality, enabling selection of up to 16 reference objects for comparison with the object being inspected, and delivering up to 19 inspection results at once.

It also eases switching between different products and part types.

The housing incorporates a standard ring light or a diffuse dome light for inspection of glossy, reflective or metallic surfaces.

Individual items do not require identical positioning for inspection, as the software evaluates edges, contours, contrasts, grey scale values or pixels relative to a defined location feature in the reference image.

The I20 can be used with or without a part presence trigger.

Image capture and evaluation of multiple references occur as soon as an object enters the field of vision, without a trigger signal to create non-capture errors.
