PLR Camera for Robotic De-racking Applications From Sick

Racks get bent and parts don’t always sit in the same place. This robot uses 2-D and 3-D camera to update its position for accurate picking of parts–-self-contained unit, no PC required, web-based interface can be set up and monitored from an HMI on the factory floor.
The APC910 controller on this CLS Series inspection system can take data from 32 inspection stations with no need for a handshake among PLCs to aggregate the data.
OEM Application Note
