OMRON has announced the global release of its new FHV7-series Smart Camera combined with illumination and image processing functionality for advanced vision inspections. Thanks to the world’s first multi-color light*1 and a best-in-class*2 12-megapixel high-resolution camera, only a single FHV7-series Smart Camera is required for achieving the industry’s highest standards of precision in vision inspections on a high-mix production line.

Features

1. Single camera for inspecting various products

  • Multi-color light provides a quick solution to the issue of measuring different colors. When the product design is changed or a new model is added, you can simply change a parameter instead of replacing or fine-tuning lights.
  • The image sensor with a maximum of 12 megapixels enables high-precision inspections for wider areas. This eliminates the need for installing multiple cameras or a mechanism to move a camera to capture different inspection points on different models on the same production line. This reduces design work and component costs.
  • The autofocus lens covers a focal length range from 59 to 2,000 mm*4. Even when products in different sizes are produced, the focus range can be changed easily by parameters. This eliminates the need for a mechanism for moving the camera, reducing design work and component costs.

2. Modular structure for a wide range of applications

  • Modular structure allows you to freely combine the lens and light with the camera.
  • The footprint of the camera is not affected by module replacement, reducing design and maintenance work.

3. Raising production quality without sacrificing cycle time

  • Modular structure allows you to freely combine the lens and light with the camera.
  • The footprint of the camera is not affected by module replacement, reducing design and maintenance work.
  • Dual-core CPU provides the fastest image processing speed among smart cameras – four times faster than the previous speed. Production cycle time can be maintained even if resolution is increased or inspection items added.
  • High-speed logging, which enables measurements to be conducted while image data is being saved, and high-speed image data compression allow complete traceability.
