Video: New Camera Sensors And Optical Buttons
The OC53 (OptiCheck) camera sensors with C-mount connection from IPF Electronic now also bring color into the evaluation. The new solutions OC539820 (resolution 640 x 480 pixels) and OC539821 (resolution 1280 x 960 pixels) now offer not only the familiar test functions and tools, but also the possibility of making color determinations and color arrangements, making the devices even more flexible to use.
Both new camera sensors have an aluminum housing (protection class IP67) with an optional lens protection housing and can be used in a temperature range from 5 ° C to 50 ° C. In addition, the devices are vibration and shock resistant in accordance with IEC 60068-2-6 and IEC 60068-2-64 (IEC 60068-2-27).
Compact laser scanner with background suppression
The PT120320 optical pushbutton with background suppression in size M12 is now also available. The background suppression is based on the time-of-flight principle, a runtime procedure for distance measurement. The distance to an object is determined via the transit time of a light pulse, which is emitted by the sensor transmitter, reflected by the object to be recognized and then detected by the sensor receiver. The decisive advantage: The range or the switching distance of the compact PT120320 of maximum 150mm is largely independent of the reflection properties of an object surface to be detected, which means that even dark objects on very bright backgrounds can be detected extremely well.
The setting of the optical push button is carried out by means of a teach procedure using a connector, whereby both a switching point and a window function are available. The NO or NC behavior of the signal output can also be selected here. (jv)
