New Watermark Feature for VE Smart Cameras

MC Banner VE Smart Camera 1 400

November 22, 2021

 

Banner’s VE Smart Cameras and Vision Manager software have been updated to add a watermark feature for saved images. If a user chooses to enable watermarking, this feature modifies the captured inspection image and permanently embeds user-selected text on top of it, for quality control and documentation. For example, a unique VIN number imported over EtherNet/IP can be saved on the image of a component intended for a vehicle to be assembled. The user has a permanent record that the part passed quality control, referencing the precise individual component’s exact image, as recorded by the VE device.

 

  • Banner’s free and easy-to-use Vision Manager Software provides a number of tools and capabilities that enable VE Series Smart Cameras to solve a wide range of vision and identification applications, such as item detection, part positioning, flaw analysis, quality assurance, traceability, etc.
  • Available in 5MP (2592 × 2048 pixels), 2MP (1600 x 1200 pixels), 1.3MP (1280 x 1024 pixels), and WVGA (752 x 480 pixels) models, all with the same powerful inspection and/or identification capabilities
  • Runtime editing capability reduces costly downtime and the software emulator allows for offline building and troubleshooting of applications
  • Factory communications (EtherNet/IP, Modbus/TCP, PROFINET, and Serial RS-232) for integration on the manufacturing floor
  • Six optically isolated I/O and the ability to power and control external lighting
  • Onboard display provides inspection information makes it easy to update sensor settings, facilitating fast product changeover
  • Robust metal housing with optional lens covers to achieve IP67 rating for use in harsh environments

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
