Balluff: Infrared vision sensor

With Balluff’s BVS vision sensor with built-in infrared lighting and integrated daylight filter, visible ambient light cannot affect image quality or stability of an inspection, greatly increasing inspection and process reliability; and because the sensor’s light is invisible to the human eye, it removes intrusive flickering to the operator, eliminating the need for shielding or desire to tamper with the sensor to minimize the lights effects.
