IDEC - Sensing

AS1 Series

The photoelectric light grids of the AS1 series are crossed-beam area sensors able to detect all objects,as small as a 0.2mm thickness, inside a 100mm height, over operating distances reaching 3m between emitter and receiver.

DATAVS1 Series

The DATAVS1 series is the easiest solution for the machine vision applications. DATAVS1 relies on the concept of a completely embedded vision sensor. The setup is very quick and intuitive thanks to the VSC unit, the external configurator with 3.5” colour display and pushbuttons. No PC is needed for the configuration. The image processing is completely carried out inside the sensor, which is able to work in stand alone mode after the setup. The VSC unit can provide a real time monitoring of the images, but it is not required during the functioning of the sensor and so it can be disconnected and used to setup multiple sensors. DATAVS1 allows a single control on each image, but offers different kind of tools to solve several tasks: product orientation on conveyor belts, presence/absence on assembly lines, overprinting controls on packaging machineries.

DATAVS2 Series

The DATAVS2 series of vision sensors presents all the characteristics able to solve artificial machine vision problems in a flexible and intuitive manner. The setup of the DATAVS2 is carried-out on a PC using Ethernet connection, ensuring a high level of flexibility. A Graphic User Interface based on a Wizard system leads step by step the user in the creation of the inspection. Different models according to different software tools are available: Object Recognition, Advanced Object Recognition (with 360° pattern matching), Identification (Barcode, Datamatrix and OCV). The sensor can store up to 20 different inspections, that can be selected using digital pulses or via Ethernet. The sensor is able to contemporarily carry-out different controls on the same object, thus reducing installation time and costs compared to using more devices in the same application.

DPRI Series

The DPRI magnetic proximity switch incorporates a sealed reed switch and four magnets inside a compact housing. This self-contained proximity switch requires no external power supply and can detect the presence of magnetic objects without contact.

DS1 Series

The DS1 AREAscan™ sensor is a compact multibeam light grid suitable for detection and measurement of objects with different shapes and sizes. DS1 is available with 100mm height, 5mm resolution and an operating distance of 2.1m.

DS2 Series

The AREAscanTM family of the DS2 series covers controlled heights ranging from 15 to 250 cm, with 5 m operating distances for 6 mm resolution versions, or 10 m for 25 mm resolution versions. The measurement configuration can be set manually thanks to internal dip-switches, or using graphic interface from remote PC on the serial port. Once loaded the program on the flash memory, the device functions in the stand-alone mode. The serial interface transmits the measurement in a binary or ASCII code, the operating status control as well as the setting of the different baud-rate versions. The DS2 light arrays suits different height or dimensional measurement applications in general, in automatic material handling.

DS3 Series

The AREAscanTM light grids of the DS3 series are optoelectronic multi-beam devices that can be used to detect, measure and control the position of objects, also transparent and small. Models with 150, 300, 450 or 600 mm detection field height are available, as well as presenting 0.2 - 0.6 m or 0.6 - 1.5 m operating distances. Internal dip-switches for configuration are available on all models, together with the Teach-in setting button with Remote and self-calibration function, LED indicators for the signaling of the device operating and auto-diagnostic status.

IS-04 Series

The IS-04 series is available in a 3-wire connection and shielded operating distance of 0.8mm. Its 4mm barrel is ideal for application with limited space.

IS-05 Series

The IS-05 series is a 5mm barrel inductive sensor with shielded operating distance of 0.8mm. It’s available in a 3-wire connection, 2-m cable or M8 connector.

IS-08 Series

The IS-08 series is an 8mm barrel inductive sensor with extended operating distance up to 3mm. It’s available in a 3-wire connection, 2-m cable, M8 and M12 connector.

IS-12 Series

The IS-12 series is an 12mm barrel inductive sensor with extended operating distance up to 8mm. It’s available in a 2, 3 or 4-wire connection, 2-m cable, M8 and M12 connector. The IS-12 also features a programmable output configuration.

IS-18 Series

The IS-18 series is an 18mm barrel inductive sensor with extended operating distance up to 14mm. It’s available in a 2, 3 or 4-wire connection, 2-m cable, M8 and M12 connector. The IS-18 also features a programmable output configuration.
