IDEC DATAVS2 series of vision sensors presents all the characteristics able to solve artificial machine vision problems in a flexible and intuitive manner. The setup of the DATAVS2 is carried-out on a PC using Ethernet connection, ensuring a high level of flexibility. A Graphic User Interface based on a Wizard system leads step by step the user in the creation of the inspection. Different models according to different software tools are available: Object Recognition, Advanced Object Recognition (with 360° pattern matching), Identification (Barcode, Datamatrix and OCV). The sensor can store up to 20 different inspections, that can be selected using digital pulses or via Ethernet. The sensor is able to contemporarily carry-out different controls on the same object, thus reducing installation time and costs compared to using more devices in the same application.
