PC-Based Camera System

Industrial automation solutions provider Omron Automation Americas offers a complete machine vision solutions package that can be easily installed on PC-based systems. The FJ2 cameras feature complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) sensors, frame rates as fast as 282 frames per second (FPS) and resolutions ranging from 0.4 MP up to 5 MP in both monochrome and color versions.

The FJ2's GigE interface provides power and communication via a single Ethernet cable as well as an I/O port. This meets the challenges in situations when Power over Ethernet (PoE) is not an option or when additional I/O access is required. For customers seeking to use their own PC or industrial PC, the FJ2 allows up to 16 cameras to be connected to a single system.

Omron's FZ-PanDA software suite provides advanced image processing algorithms that include all major tools from the FH Series vision system in a PC environment. It offers flexibility on graphical user interface (GUI) design due to built-in graphic customization tools and more advanced options to fully customize the interface to specific manufacturing needs. Macro processing items are included for implementing system-wide customizations and calculations on the processing flow.

As a highly flexible and scalable option, the FJ2 works well for a range of applications and industries. "Manufacturers needing 100% quality control, such as vehicle body inspection, PCB inspection or clinical laboratory specimen verification, can benefit from the new camera," said the spokesperson. For traceability applications, the FJ2 combines the ability to capture unique I.D. of parts inspected with image file and measurement data to enable quality control and process improvements.
