Infrared vision sensor avoids some common problems

05 September 2013

Fluctuating 'ambient light' can impair the testing reliability of standard vision sensors. At the same time, technicians and other staff are often distracted by the pulsing light of normal vision sensors.

Balluff's BVS-E infrared vision sensor, with integrated light filter, prevents this from the outset. 

The BVS-E infrared vision sensor uses light that is invisible to the human eye, it does not bother the operator and is safe for the eyes(certified according to CE (EN 62471:2008)).

The integrated light filter shields the vision sensor from most ambient light enabling the it to check all objects to a high standard.

The read quality and the reliability of the inspection process is increased by the sensors 10% higher light intensity than comparable red light vision sensors.

Available with a choice of 6mm and 8mm standard lenses plus 12mm and 16mm telephoto lens, the Infrared BVS Vision Sensor enables the right solution to match the application.

All versions have an industry-standard, ultra-compact casing and can be supplied with all necessary cables and mounting brackets for a simple and versatile installation.
