In addition to the machine vision product portfolio, Datalogic is also an authorized reseller of many third party vision accessories made by leading companies in its field. The offer is primarily for integrators and end users who need accessories to go to realize complete machine vision or barcode reading solutions. The accessories can therefore be used together with smart cameras, vision systems or fixed scanners based on imager technology to create turnkey solutions. The range of third party vision accessories is divided into three main product families: illuminators for industrial use based on LED technology, lenses and optical filters.
Illuminators are typically one of the most important parts of a vision solution because of their importance in creating contrast between the characteristics of the target object to be inspected and the background. Datalogic has a wide range of solutions, from more traditional formats such as bar or ring illuminators, to more sophisticated solutions such as backlights or dark field illuminators. The lighting solutions offered by Datalogic, available in a variety of colors, guarantee high performance thanks to the use of the latest generation LEDs and the ability to operate in strobe mode to obtain maximum brightness especially for applications requiring reduced exposure times.
Similar to illuminators, lenses are a fundamental element in a vision solution. The Datalogic offering consists of the traditional C-mount optics (C-mount), available in a wide range of focal lengths and in different variants in terms of quality/price ratio. In addition, F-mount optics (typically used in linear camera solutions) and telecentric optics (for high accuracy measurement applications) round off the range.
Optical filters, usually mounted on the receiving lens, are supporting accessories to optimize and improve the performance of a vision system. Datalogic markets a wide spectrum of bandpass filters capable of removing the light component that is not useful for vision control purposes.
Third Party Vison Accessories Common Applications
Vision accessories are typically used in the most challenging machine vision or barcode reading applications when the more traditional optical and lighting solutions integrated directly into the devices are not effective. For example:
- In Quality Control
the use of external illuminators in combination with optical filters can emphasize surface defects that would otherwise be poorly visible.
- Robot Guidance
The use of backlights provides the ability to create a good contrast between the object to be picked up and the background, thus obtaining extremely repeatable and reliable results.
The use of telecentric optics allows to remove the problems arising from lens distortion and perspective effect, thus ensuring maximum accuracy in the measurements made.
