Industrial automation specialist Omron Automation Americas has launched the V/F400 and V/F300 Series smart cameras, the latest additions to its MicroHAWK line that combines code reading and vision inspection capabilities into a single device.
Omron designed the new products especially for manufacturers who are looking to simplify their product inspections. The new MicroHAWK V/F400 and V/F300 Series smart cameras are powerful devices that combine code reading and vision inspection into a single, highly compact form.
By bundling multiple capabilities in one, the new cameras will lower hardware costs and minimize the work required for commissioning and maintenance. Powerful technologies such as liquid lens autofocus, and a high-resolution 5-megapixel color camera ensure precision while promoting greater flexibility in production line layouts.
The autofocus technology ensures that the camera can reliably inspect products that vary in size, shape, or desired inspection type. Additionally, Omron’s advanced X-Mode algorithms can read any code on any surface, including curved, shiny or otherwise textured materials, minimizing downtime and keeping production moving smoothly.
The compact size of the V/F400 and V/F300 Series makes it easy to embed them within space-constrained equipment and offers wide variety of supported communication interfaces include Ethernet/IP and Profinet for added flexibility.
