Integrated machine vision
At the heart of the solution is a broad selection of intelligent camera technology. Options at the lower end will replace simple machine vision sensors, while the top of the range will harness the full potential of high-end smart cameras. These cameras are capable of performing a wide range of machine vision tasks that are currently still being carried out by PC-based systems.
A key component of B&R's machine vision system is intelligent lighting technology. Lighting elements are available integrated in the camera, as an external device, or even as a combination of the two. Automatic lighting modulation prevents stray light and other difficult lighting conditions from compromising performance. It also makes it easy to achieve extremely precise synchronization for high-speed image capture or implement object-specific requirements such as bright-field or dark-field illumination.
