New 20 MP GigE and USB 3 Cameras


he Imaging Source has expanded its product portfolio with four new cam-era models featuring the Sony 20

MP IMX183 sensor. The new camera mod-els are available with a USB 3.0 or GigE interface and support the USB3 Vi- sion and GigE Vision standards. The IMX 183 is a back- illuminated 1" sensor with high sensitivity, good image quality and excellent colour reproduction. In addition to applications in microscopy, the cameras are suitable for a variety of inspection and measurement tasks. Combining the cameras with the The Imaging Source 1" lenses (see pictures below) results in a high-resolution camera system with a particularly good price to performance ratio.

Cost effective lighting for Vision related applications TechniQuip has been supplying medical and industrial

customers with relia-ble and costeffective lighting and vision related products for over 40 years. They are committed to being a leading manufacturer of

the latest technolo-gies needed to increase the productivity of people working in medicine, manufacturing, quality control, and product development environments.

he SICK OL1 Optical Micrometer is a highly-accurate, miniature and rugged addition to SICK’s portfolio of

displacement technologies for thread, material thickness and edge measurements in continuous, sheet feeding and winding machines. The SICK OL1 Optical Micrometer is a rugged

instrument for integration into small spaces. With a miniature sender and receiver placed up to 300mm apart, it uses light curtain measurement technology, based on a multipixel, linear CMOS sensor, for high-precision, high- repeatability measurement and process control in the micrometer range. The OL1 is teamed with the SICK AOD1 Mini displacement evaluation unit for improved stability and consistency of output. With a 10mm light band and detection resolution down

to 0.2mm, the OL1 Optical Micrometer is a versatile and stable performer at short ranges, small tolerances and for handling thin materials, so it can support precision applications, for example in paper, printing and packaging

machines, electronics and solar manufacture and wire and metal forming industries. The SICK OL1 Optical Micrometer is a sender and

receiver in twin miniature (61 X 21 X 10mm) rugged metal housings. The SICK OL1 sender emits a Class 1 laser 10mm-wide parallel light curtain, which is captured by the receiver on a high-resolution CMOS chip, with any object in between registering as a precisely-measured shadow. The SICK OL1 is an analogue measurement device and is combined with SICK’s AOD1 evaluation unit for integration with the machine controller. Alignment is simple with the integrated LED alignment

aid at the sensor head. Commissioning and integration with machine controls is quick and easy, via the display configuration with individualised configuration and calculation through the AOD1 evaluation unit.

‘Breakthrough’ automated broccoli harvester turns to FANUC for a helping hand

ANUC robots have been integrated into a ‘breakthrough’ selective automated broccoli

harvesting system, which has the potential to revolutionise the UK vegetable industry in the face of spiralling production costs. Over 75,000 tonnes of broccoli are grown and

harvested across the UK each year. Commercial growers typically rely on a team of seven people to manually harvest crops. The monotonous work often takes place in unpleasant working conditions and can lead to repetitive strain injuries and other long-term health conditions. Labour is a significant cost for UK growers, and changes

to the National Living Wage are set to see manual harvesting costs increase by 35% by 2021, thus threatening the competitiveness of UK growers and potentially driving production to low-cost countries overseas. Realtime data analysis can be monitored both from a HMI in the tractor cabin, and remotely from a central office.
