FH VISION SENSOR FROM OMRON DELIVERS HIGH-PERFORMANCE INSPECTION AND TRACEABILITY

Omron’s high-quality FH-series vision sensor delivers true colour technology base on RGB 16.7 million colours, delivered at high speed, high reliability, and high accuracy.

Amongst the standout features are; very high-speed image input with 300 FPS (3.3ms), high-speed controller with parallel processing using 2 CPU/4 cores, high-speed communication through Ethercat, and a streamlined one-software setup for easy meshing with Omron NJ and Omron Robots, servo and safety.

The FH vision sensor also features a High Resolution Touch Panel Monitor, which allows for quality inspection without compromising ease of use. The new 12 MPixels (4000x3000pixels) camera has been included to ensure higher quality, accuracy and works at high speed with 38.9 frames per second (25.7ms).

Mr George Nematian, Omron’s Vision Sensor Product Manager, says the new FH series vision sensor is faster, more efficient, and has more features than ever before.

“The FH series offers outstanding return on investment (ROI) and greater customer satisfaction,” Mr Nematian says.
“It can be used in any application where visual inspections are required.”

Mr Nematian says the system is widely used in various industries, such as food & beverage, packaging, pharmaceutical, automotive, metals, machine tools, robotics, rubber, plastics, conveyors and automated warehouses.

The current range of applications include essential tasks like the detection of missing expiry date labels, optical character recognition (OCR), label or position of label detection, cap inspection, liquid level measurement, damaged bottle detection, missing parts/part recognitions, positioning, measurement and quality inspections of metal sheets.

With an IP65 rating, the FH vision sensor is dust proof and water resistant, making it ideal for hygiene-sensitive food and beverage environments.

The FH vision sensor conducts highly accurate cap inspections to ensure the correct product is processed. It can also be used for traceability to monitor date and time codes as well as for contamination inspection to ensure no contamination has occurred.

Omron has greatly reduced the input time and image transfer time to provide high-speed processing to match the speed of machine applications for high-resolution images.

New shape search III technology makes search algorithms nine times faster than before, even for unstable image conditions; including light interference, overlapping shapes, gloss, and incomplete images.

An FH-series Controller provides a faster, multi-line image bus to enable real time transfer of large amounts of image data for high-resolution cameras or multiple cameras.

Most standard vision sensors are unable to handle parallel processing, which creates unnecessary waiting time. If the machine cycle time cannot be increased, a controller must be added for each process to perform parallel processing, increasing costs.
With the FH series, four controllers are compressed into one without increasing the line cycle time. You can greatly reduce costs for processes that involve many lines.
Also, the FH Controllers contain special setup displays for the stages and robots that are commonly used on FA sites. You just fill in the settings to easily output axis travel amounts for stages and robots.

Omron’s innovative Sysmac Studio automation software supports the FH series, allowing multiple devices to be integrated easily by using EtherCAT connectivity.

FH controller can easily connect to the FH-MT12 Touch Panel Monitor is equipped with a 12.1-inch screen and IP65. that is ideal for replacement of existing models. You can adjust all the settings by touching the screen.

“With an ever changing manufacturing environment, Omron’s series of vision systems are perfect for manufacturers who are striving to meet these changing needs,” said Mr Nematian.

“Omron has worked closely with many engineers and vision integrators to install and maintain vision systems in plants across Australia and New Zealand.”
