With camera and image processor in the sensing head, FQ vision sensors offer a choice of PC or optional TouchFinder terminal for setup and monitoring. A simple and intuitive icon-driven menu system eliminates the need for complex instructions and specialist know-how. Sensors employ high dynamic range (HDR) technology and incorporate full color processing (up to 16.7 million colors), built-in polarizing and halation filters to remove glare for perfect contrast, and integrated high-intensity LED lighting. These features enable stable inspection even with highly reflective, low contrast and similarly difficult targets where conventional vision sensors see nothing. They also cope easily with piece-to-piece variation between targets and with target misalignment. Models offer up to 32 simultaneous inspections within a scene.
