A company's sensor combines some of the functionality of machine vision and traditional sensors in a single system. The IV Vision Sensor is a low-cost, highly versatile, multipurpose sensor to handle a range of presence detection applications. Setup takes approximately one minute, and the IV can handle detection applications that previously required multiple convenitonal or proximity sensors. The IV’s standard equipment, including high-intensity illumination, high-performance lenses, and a selection of eight sensor heads, enables sharp, clear, stable images. The IV Camera selection includes close-, medium-, and long-range models to suit application requirements. The IV complies with the IP67 enclosure rating, which is based on IEC/JIS standards. It can be used safely in dusty or wet environments. Its built-in features include automatic focus, automatic one-touch brightness adjustment, high-performance quad lens, and Hi-R illumination. The IV’s Navigator software can be used with any PC for quick setup. An auto tuning function enables automatic optimization of threshold and parameters to further simplify and reduce setup time. Output adjustment, remote operation, a statistics function and a pattern tool for stable detection add further versatility in the use of this multi-function new sensor. Additional illumination accessories and utilities include an HS-HDR Function, polarizing filters to eliminate glare, Dome Lights, and Automatic Brightness Correction.
