Flexible deployment options. Most customers have limited space on the production line for vision systems. Small form factor, right-angle cable design and the ability to power lighting and Ethernet are important considerations when space is a concern.
Intuitive user interface. One customer said, “if it’s not easy to set up applications and use them, I don’t bother taking the system out of the box.”
Robust vision tool library. The fastest, smallest vision system is useless if the tools don't deliver reliable, repeatable performance.
Comprehensive communications. The operator has to be able to set up seamless integration between the vision system and HMIs, robots and PLCs.
Easy maintenance and monitoring. Most operators want to be able to see all the systems (Vision and ID) connected to the network because it’s easier to make upgrades and troubleshoot problems.
