Easy Image Processing with Vision Inspection
AUGUST 12, 2007 (ASIA PACIFIC) -
Omronís new ZFX Vision Inspection System simplifies every aspect of
automated inspection by condensing image-processing know-how
into recipes that allow the user to select from auto-listed
options, resulting in shorter commissioning time and lower
costs. Hardware has been condensed to just two pieces - an
intelligent camera and a controller with LCD touch screen.
The ZFX programming environment uses a live color image for maximum
accuracy in setup and monitoring. A three-step setting procedure
reduces fumbling with lighting setup and eliminates the tricky
parameter details involved in measurement setup.
Set-up Complete in Minutes
The built-in touch screen offers interactive menus which guide
the user through the entire set-up of individual tasks in three
simple steps: select the inspection tools, choose the inspection
regions and set the proposed inspection parameters with a push
of the AUTO button. ZFX vision inspection system provides immediate live feedback, images
and clear system messages. The entire set-up procedure is
completed in a matter of minutes. No PC is required for set-up,
maintenance and operation.
Inspections Ready for the Job
Multiple inspections per image can be configured. You can choose
from up to 20 inspections or inspection support tools. Image
pre-processing, position compensation, calibration and data
logging tools complete the range of powerful easy to use
features. The ZFX vision inspection system is available as a one or two
camera system. Depending on the connected camera, the tools will
process a monochrome image or a colour image providing colour
filters and colour pickup options innovative in this class.
Connections for any Environment
Multiple interface options offer smooth integration into the
control environment, such as Ethernet, serial, USB and digital
I/O. Communication of result data, calculations and images,
upload and download of configuration, manipulation of settings,
and much more is possible using these interfaces. The 20 digital
I/O ports guarantee fast communication of real time control for
trigger, binary results, handshake or status.
Cameras Fit for the Purpose
The ZFX vision inspection system supports a range of smart cameras with integrated
lighting and adjustable focus. They are available with a field
of view from 10 mm to 150 mm. For more advanced applications
there are additional c-mount cameras, offering any lens/light
combination. All cameras are available as colour or monochrome
versions. This guarantees maximum flexibility and secures the
future investment in your inspection.
