Teledyne Dalsa Boa Spot vision sensors

Share this on social media:

STEMMER IMAGING can now offer the Boa Spot vision sensors from Teledyne DALSA. Designed for automating basic inspection tasks on production line, such as detecting the presence or absence of features and performing simple measurements, the self-contained Boa Spot provides vision system performance at vision sensor pricing.

Boa Spot vision sensors combine the power and flexibility of a BOA vision system with integrated LED lighting with multiple available colours, lens cover, and easy-to-use software to deliver high value capabilities at a low cost of ownership. Available with 640 x 480 or 1280 x 960 image resolution, the new vision sensors can inspect multiple part features at the same time, and at higher speeds and with greater accuracy than traditional photoelectric sensors.

Embedded vision tools are provided for part locating, feature finding, counting and measuring applications. A simple graphic user interface allows these tools to be combined and used numerous times to solve simple or complex inspection tasks. The low cost of ownership means that Boa Spot can be used at more points of inspection on manufacturing and packaging lines to give better failure analysis and allow corrective action to be taken more quickly and easily. This improves quality, reduces scrap, and increases throughput.

Versatile I/O for control and interfacing are provided. Standard factory protocols, such as Ethernet/IP and Profinet, are directly supported for communicating with 3rd party equipment or other factory devices. Boa Spot can be run on the same network as other vision systems in the Boa range. Inspections can be triggered by parts in motion or from a PLC after being moved into a stationary position.

A slim form factor with an IP67 rated housing, thru- and surface-mounting options and a choice of C-mount or M-12 lenses allows Boa Spot to be deployed in the most demanding of factory environments.
