New BOA2 Vision System Offers Greater Accuracy and Detects Smaller Defects

Now with more pixels, power and integration flexibility for automating parts and assembly inspection.

Waterloo, Ontario - May 26, 2015 - Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in machine vision components and solutions, announced today its next generation BOA2 Smart Camera featuring higher resolution imaging, dual-core processing and embedded iNspect Express application software. The BOA2 smart camera is a complete vision system with more pixels, power and integration flexibility for automating parts and assembly inspection.

"Our new BOA2 vision system is built around the industry's most advanced image sensor technology, allowing it to capture defects that are difficult to resolve or lost with lower resolution imagers," said Steve Geraghty, Vice-President, Industrial Vision Solutions at Teledyne DALSA. "Online inspection tasks are easily configured with our expanded iNspect Express user interface, allowing manufacturers to ensure production quality, minimize product recalls and reduce costs."

BOA2 is offered with 2, 3 or 5M pixel resolution. For very high speed applications, the CMOS sensor format can be changed to achieve inspection rates of up to 80 parts per second. The 2M model supports an optional integrated LED ring light with built-in collimators that provide powerful, uniform lighting across the inspection area. The sensor supports standard C mount lenses which, together with the optional LED light, can be enclosed within a protective cover to safeguard against accidental damage or tampering. The BOA2 is rated for use in harsh industrial environments and provides several mounting options on the front, back and side surfaces.

At the heart of BOA2 is a high performance, 1.5 GHz dual core processing engine for executing user configured solutions. System memory resources include 2 GB bytes of solution storage and 1 GB of program memory. The embedded iNspect Express application software supports standard factory protocols, such as EthernetIP, Profinet and Modbus for interfacing with complementary factory products and control networks. The physical interfaces include Gigabit Ethernet, RS-232 serial, opto-isolated inputs and outputs, all of which can be connected using standard M12 factory cables. A DIN mountable breakout module is offered to simplify control panel wiring.

US Digital - E4T Miniature Optical Kit Encoder

US Digital is pleased to announce the launch of the E4T, their latest series of miniature high performance optical encoders. The E4T series delivers a marked performance increase over similar encoder models and designed to be an enhanced replacement for the E4P encoder series. The E4T utilizes state of the art transmissive optical sensing technology, and incorporates US Digital's own proprietary OptoASIC. Assembly of the E4T is simple and efficient and retains the previous E4P's form factor. Key features of the new E4T include: • Mechanically and Electrically Interchangeable with E4P • Improved Quadrature Signal Strength • 100 kHz Frequency Response • Transmissive Optical Design • Collet Style Push on Optical Disk Design (Patent Pending) • Simple & Efficient Assembly Process As with all of our products the E4T is designed and manufactured in their Vancouver, Washington USA facility and is available for purchase as of December 2014.
