IDEC DATAVS1 series is the easiest solution for the machine vision applications. DATAVS1 relies on the concept of a completely embedded vision sensor. The setup is very quick and intuitive thanks to the VSC unit, the external configurator with 3.5" colour display and pushbuttons. No PC is needed for the configuration. The image processing is completely carried out inside the sensor, which is able to work in stand alone mode after the setup. The VSC unit can provide a real time monitoring of the images, but it is not required during the functioning of the sensor and so it can be disconnected and used to setup multiple sensors. DATAVS1 allows a single control on each image, but offers different kind of tools to solve several tasks: product orientation on conveyor belts, presence/absence on assembly lines, overprinting controls on packaging machineries.
