New Vision Sensor Targets Robotic Guidance
Posted:
Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies [NYE:TDY] company and global leader in machine vision technology, announced today its new low cost BOA™ Spot XL vision sensors for industrial automation and inspection.

Designed for error proofing, identification, general inspection and robot guidance, BOA Spot XL vision sensors deliver the performance and capabilities to rival any product in its class. The all-in-one BOA Spot XL comes with integrated LED lighting, lens cover and easy-to-use application software, providing high value capabilities at a low cost of ownership. Robust embedded vision tools include positioning, part locating, pattern matching, measuring, feature or defect detection and identifying, including automatic reading of characters (OCR) based on a pre-trained AI (Artificial Intelligence) inference network. Additional features include extensive image preprocessors and advanced calibration for image correction and system coordinate mapping.

"BOA Spot XL vision sensors deliver the performance and capabilities of a sophisticated smart vision system," commented Steve Geraghty, General Manager of Teledyne DALSA’s Industrial Imaging Solutions US. "This latest BOA Spot model offers manufacturers the tools and integration flexibility for a wide range of automation and inspection applications."

Inspections using BOA Spot XL vision sensors can be triggered by parts in motion or from a PLC after being moved into a stationary position. Compatible protocols, such as Ethernet/IP and PROFINET, provide standard languages for communicating with 3rd party equipment or the factory enterprise.

Thru- and surface-mounting options and a slim form factor lend automation and system developers the benefit of positioning the BOA Spot XL in tight places.
