For decades, photoelectric sensors have been ubiquitous on packaging lines-triggering processes, counting, checking for label presence, sorting objects of different sizes, and performing dozens of other tasks. Even so, their usefulness has been limited by their single beam and lack of brain power. That's where low-cost vision sensors can help. Vision sensors are especially well suited to applications that are too complicated for photoelectrics or that require complex fixturing.
