Vision Sensors

Baumer (Southington, CT) has expanded its VeriSens XC series vision sensor portfolio to include models capable of color identification and inspection. Color FEX, a new, intelligent feature for setup of 3D color identification and definition, automatically identifies and visualizes object colors in 3D as color spheres. The resulting absence of sphere collisions ensures reliable color inspection.

Single-Chip Optical Encoders

iC-Haus (Bodenheim, Germany) has developed sensor chips for optical position encoders using photodiodes designed especially for blue light. The new iC-PT H-Series chips combine optimized scanning and signal interpolation in a flat 5 x 5 mm² optoQFN package with a plane window. Due to the optimized Phased- Array structure of the opto-chips, a minimal scanning area of only 1.9 mm x 3.1 mm is sufficient to generate 10,000 pulses per revolution using a code disc of only 26 mm diameter, for example. The blue light LEDs increase contrast with lower noise. The shorter wavelength and penetration of blue- light photons improve the resolution, signal amplitude, harmonic distortion, and jitter performance of incremental and absolute encoders. www.ichaus.com/encoder-blue
