September 8, 2011 - EVT releases EyeSpector camera for robots. With the combination of the EyeSpector smart camera series with EyeVision image processing software EVT provides the eye for the robot. In only a few steps the user has the possibility to solve even complex tasks in the robot vision field. The compact design of the EyeSpector with the completely integrated EyeVision software guarantees an exact and efficient image processing solution.


Hand in hand with the robot, the EyeSpector smart camera provides with only a few commands the perfect Pick & Place solution. For this the EyeVision evaluation software contains the optional SmartMatch command, which detects the product in every position and every rotational orientation sub-pixel correct and is then testing the product according the user-defined characteristics. Even invariance in size does not disturb the unbribable eye of the EyeSpector.

The communication with the robot takes place via various interfaces, such as Gigabit Ethernet, IP, TCP/IP, Modbus and RS232, easily via XML or via a free defined instruction format. Hence, not only is the EyeSpector camera easily integrated into the existing company software, but also the communication with the robot can be realized.

Coming along is the powerful library, which contains command sets for many conventional robots such as KUKA, Reis, Stäubli and many more. Even if the robot is not yet implemented, this can be handled in no time at all.

Also, in case of programming the robot, the drag-and-drop programming of the EyeVision software leads to the proposed result - fast and easy. Additionally it does not matter if you use a vision sensor, a smart camera or a PC based system, the EyeVision user interface stays the same, also in case of robotic applications. This is especially important concerning the maintenance: the personnel does not have to learn different operating systems, so they can work with EyeVision whatever system you use.

The field of application ranges from the RobotVision and the electronic industry to the semiconductor industry. The recognition of characters in logistic systems as well as the reading of codes do not cause a problem for the system. In this connection it does not matter whether it is a OCR, a bar code, a DMC or QR code.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
