The Banner P4 GEO easily inspects for correct features regardless of product orientation or position in the sensor's field of view -eliminating expensive and complex mechanical fixturing. The P4 GEO is a powerful performer that delivers full 360° inspection at a fraction of the cost of competitive products.
The P4 GEO offers several features that make it particularly easy to deploy on the factory floor. A remote TEACH feature allows the sensor to learn new features it will need to inspect for -without connecting to a PC or shutting down the line. New inspections are learned real time while production is running. The built-in live video image output allows users to view the sensor's inspections in real time and to also view failed inspection images without the use of a PC. The P4 GEO vision sensor can interface to machines and factory networks via its built-in 10/100 Ethernet connection, RS-232 or discrete input/outputs.
The high-throughput feature detection abilities of the PresencePLUS P4 GEO make it ideal for a broad range of applications in the packaging, pharmaceutical, assembly, baking, automotive, metalforming and semiconductor industries. Applications for the P4 GEO include part identification and orientation to eliminate errors by rejecting incorrect parts before they are assembled or packaged; assembly verification to inspect for all critical features and to error proof the manufacturing process; and correct label verification at high speed production rates.
The PresencePLUS P4 GEO performs like a vision sensor yet facilitates changeover as easily as a standard photoelectric sensor. Now users can apply vision sensing in machines and on manufacturing lines where it was previously impractical. Without the need for fixturing, overall costs are reduced and inspection throughputs are increased. The P4 GEO can inspect up to 6,000 parts-per-minute with typical inspections averaging 1,500 parts-per-minute.
