Integrated vision into machine automation
Automation specialist introduces image processing solution
B&R Industrial Automation Pvt. Ltd.
Industrial automation solution
B&R makes machine vision an integral element of the automation ecosystem. At this year's SPS IPC Drives, B&R introduced the world's first image processing solution to be seamlessly incorporated in the automation system. The solution comprises cameras, software and lighting accessories.
At the heart of the solution is a broad selection of intelligent camera technology. Options at the lower end will replace simple machine vision sensors, while the top of the range will harness the full potential of high-end smart cameras. Ready-made software components are available for creating applications with minimal new programming.
Lighting elements are available integrated in the camera, as an external device, or even as a combination of the two. Extremely precise synchronization for high-speed image capture and object-specific functions such as bright-field or dark-field illumination are easy to implement. Image triggers and lighting control can be synchronized with the rest of the automation system in hard real time and with sub-microsecond precision.
B&R's machine vision system is integrated on every level: the engineering tool, the real-time operating sys-tem and the application software. With a single development environment for every aspect of automation, controls engineers will now be able to implement many machine vision tasks on their own.
On July 6, 2017, B&R became a business unit of the ABB Group. As a global leader in industrial automation, B&R combines state-of-the-art technology with advanced engineering to provide customers in virtually every industry with complete solutions for machine and factory automation, motion control, HMI and integrated safety technology.
