Smart Sensor
ZFV-C smart sensor offers sensing capabilities close to human vision, including the ability to distinguish shapes and colors. Color sensing enables the sensor to see images invisible to monochromatic sensors. Integrated color filters enable sensing of only selected colors when necessary to get a better image. The sensor features a “Teach and Go” function using a color LCD screen and menu that reduce setup for inspections. The screen shows a live image for instant feedback during both setup and inspection operations. Eight sensor functions are available, depending on the controller used, including counting, pattern recognition, size verification, position, brightness, width, text verification and hue (comparing sensed color to a reference color). As many as five sensors can be connected to one controller bus through a snap-on system, allowing five different inspections in one pass.
