Vision System Adds Line Scan Cameras and Ultra-Fast Triple Core Processor
A newly designed Triple Core Processor significantly increases production/inspection throughput over conventional vision systems. High-load data processing, from 5 megapixel area scan and 8K line scan cameras (capable of capturing 67 megapixel images), achieves ultra-fast performance through distributed processing across three high-speed cores.
Industry first, visual LED indicators, built into KEYENCE line scan cameras, display received light intensities and image sharpness thus simplifying this normally difficult and time consuming setup process. The right camera and illumination settings can be selected easily.
A new HMI touch panel adds another option to the different ways a user can interface with the XG. Users can now choose from direct handheld controller operation and remote desktop through KEYENCE software or VNC viewer, on top of the new HMI touch panel, to control the XG. With access to the XG in many ways, features like “Online Re-Test” can be taken advantage of by allowing users to make changes to the program without taking the XG offline.
Addition of another industry-first vision tool, the KEYENCE Trace Log function, offers powerful processing and I/O troubleshooting capabilities. Users can check and monitor the sequencing of in-process program units, I/O signals and commands. Processing time for each unit plus other information can be displayed and saved for reference or future use.
