Teledyne DALSA’s low-cost BOA Spot XL vision sensors are groomed for industrial automation and inspection. The all-in-one BOA Spot XL comes with integrated LED lighting, lens cover, and application software. Embedded vision tools include positioning, part locating, pattern matching, measuring, feature or defect detection, and identifying, including automatic reading of characters (OCR) based on a pre-trained AI (Artificial Intelligence) inference network. Additional features include extensive image preprocessors and advanced calibration for image correction and system coordinate mapping.
Inspections using the vision sensors can be triggered by parts in motion or from a PLC after being moved into a stationary position. Compatible protocols, such as Ethernet/IP and PROFINET, provide standard languages for communicating with 3rd party equipment or the factory enterprise. Thru- and surface-mounting options and a slim form factor lend automation and system developers the benefit of positioning the component in tight places.
