Vision solutions for any need

Whether tracking parts, checking the position, size, orientation and distance of objects, or their quality and completeness, Balluff BVS vision solutions for industrial image processing offer you individualized concepts for meeting the challenges of your production. With our SmartCamera, industrial cameras, handheld scanners and vision sensors, you get the right solution for any requirement.

SmartCamera – Easy to integrate, cost-saving and flexible

Are you looking for a simple and flexible solution for tracking, quality control and positioning processes in your plant? Our intelligent cameras are ideal for these tasks. The BVS SC SmartCamera provides you with all the necessary functions for reliably checking the quality of your production and eliminating scrap. Whatever functions you need — whether analyzing, finding or measuring — can be individually assembled according to your unique requirements.

The SmartCamera offers intuitive operation and simple-to-use operating software with tools based on industry-proven HALCON algorithms. This ensures fast and reliable solutions and allows the results to be sent wherever they are needed.

Incorporation into the production environment is also easy, since our SmartCamera is available with an IO-Link interface or fieldbus variants.The SmartCamera comes in a rugged IP67 housing, is flexible in its mounting, and provides standardized M12 connectivity for all the interfaces, making it ideal for industrial use.

Industrial cameras – Fast, compact and high-performance

Our industrial cameras provide high resolution, fast image processing. You can select between color or black-and-white and four different image resolutions. The compact form factor means our industrial cameras are easy to install even in tight spaces and provide tack-sharp images in any position. The industrial cameras are connected to an industrial controller and are convenient to set up and deploy using the integrated BVS Cockpit operating interface. Multiple cameras can be connected to one controller at the same time, which allows for inspection from different angles. This makes inspection both high in quality and economical.

A further benefit: Thanks to the various interfaces like GigE Vision and USB3, our industrial cameras can be easily incorporated into any network.

Everything at hand with the portable scanners from Balluff

Balluff BVS HS-P and HS-Q handheld scanners read all standard 1D, 2D and stacked barcodes from documents, plastic labels, circuit boards and metal parts. They are highly rugged and can withstand repeated drops on concrete. The IP65 protection rating means they are suitable for use in the field. Their simple, intuitive operation makes the Balluff portable scanners a handy helper, for example in controlling logistics processes in kanban systems, in production control, optical tool identification, parts tracking, quality control or inventory keeping. The wireless version is especially mobile and can send data reliably within a distance of up to 100 meters. With lithium-ion batteries, you can charge once and read up to 30,000 times.

Visual all-rounders: Balluff Vision Sensors

Our vision sensors provide seven independent inspection tools and up to twenty storable inspections. They detect and inspect objects and plain text (OCR/ OCV), so that you can rely on unambiguous defect detection and exact quality inspections.

All the functions in the Balluff vision sensors can be flexibly combined. This means you can handle different inspection tasks with just one sensor. The advanced version also solves demanding applications such as location detection within a 360 degree surrounding and performs logical operations on different features.

When speed is the most important feature, the universal model is what you need. It can read and verify up to 40 barcodes and DataMatrix codes per second. And with its powerful contour-based image processing tools, it can locate, check and count parts in any rotational orientation.
