Checker 4G series
Cognex has added the Checker 4G series to its line of vision sensors. The vision sensor offers the same powerful and easy-to-use setup Checker is known for plus adds Ethernet networking for remote setup and monitoring, PLC communication through EtherNet/IP and Profinet and the ability to save inspection images to an FTP server.
Checker 4G allows the user to configure the sensor as a presence sensor or measurement sensor to inspect and error proof the manufacturing process. Presence sensors verify that features are present; measurement sensors verify that features are the correct height, width and/or diameter. In either mode, there is no limit to the number of part features that a single Checker can inspect.
With patented part detection technology Checker sensors are also able to detect and inspect over 6,000 parts per minute in varying positions along the production line.
The Checker 4G series is available in both high speed and high resolution models. Features include: integrated lighting, optics and I/O in an Industrial IP67 housing, remote setup and display through a PC, up to 32 job changes and up to four discrete outputs, encoder based part tracking, and coloured lens filters.
The Checker 4G series complements the existing Checker 3G series, which features simple USB connectivity and no PC setup with the SensorView teach pendant. All Checker models are easy to set up and use.
