WOODCLIFF, N.J., 17 April 2009. Keyence Corp. of America in Woodcliff Lake, N.J., is introducing the CV-5000 machine vision system for high-speed image processing for production lines and other machine vision applications.

The 3 + 1 parallel processing system has machine vision software algorithms to detect foreign objects or burrs on irregularly shaped profiles. These machine vision technology algorithms also filter out glare or other background noise.

The 11x speed, 5 mega pixel camera transfers images as large as 2,432 by 2,050 pixels in 61.2 milliseconds. Difficult inspections can be done with one camera. As many as four 5 million-pixel cameras capable of transferring images simultaneously can enable high-definition inspections with resolutions as fine as 20 million pixels.

The CV-5000 series also enables simultaneous use of several other camera types. Users can select from a lineup of 14 different models, including standard and mega pixel, as well as high speed standard (640 by 480 pixels) and high speed 2 mega pixel (1,600 by 1,200), which can transfer images in 4.7 and 29.2 microseconds, respectively.

An expandable controller architecture enables users to connect extra lighting controllers or camera expansion units without additional PLC programming or wiring.
