High Performance Vision Sensor Inspections

Industrial Sensors: Checker

The simple, powerful vision sensors from Cognex.

The SensorView™ 2 smart display from Cognex gives production managers the power to create, edit and monitor vision sensor activity without the need for a PC. With integrated part detection, lighting, I/O and job change, Checker 4G is the easy and affordable way to verify the products you manufacture.

Checker’s unique inspection sensors provide the most reliable way to inspect your part:

Checker Simple Setup bright High Performance Vision Sensor Inspections: Brightness sensors look for dark or light areas on the part. width High Performance Vision Sensor Inspections: Width sensors measure the width of a part, component, or feature.
Checker Simple Setup contrast High Performance Vision Sensor Inspections: Contrast sensors look for areas on the part that contain both bright and dark areas: date codes, threads, and many other part features. height High Performance Vision Sensor Inspections: Height sensors measure the height of a part, component, or feature.
Checker Simple Setup pattern High Performance Vision Sensor Inspections: Pattern sensors understand what your part features look like and lets you know when the feature appears. diameter High Performance Vision Sensor Inspections: Diameter sensors measure the diameter of a part, component, or feature.
edge new High Performance Vision Sensor Inspections: Edge presence sensors verify the presence of edge features. pattern pres new High Performance Vision Sensor Inspections: Pattern presence sensors include “robust” and “fast” modes to verify the presence of patterns.
pattern pos new High Performance Vision Sensor Inspections: Pattern position sensors verify the correct location of patterns and supports 360 degree rotation. edge pos new High Performance Vision Sensor Inspections: Edge position sensors verify the correct location of edges and supports up to 20 degrees rotation.
object pos new High Performance Vision Sensor Inspections: Object position sensors verify the correct location of objects (blobs).

The Checker Part Finding Sensor has three important advantages:

  1. Detects a part by locating a feature on the part, not just an edge
  2. Tracks parts in varying positions along the production line, overcoming imprecise part positioning
  3. Does not require additional sensors to determine if a part is present

The Checker® vision sensor is an award winning all-in-one industrial sensor with built in camera, processor, lighting, optics, and I/O capable of detecting and inspecting up to 6,000 parts per minute–all in an industrial IP67 enclosure small enough to fit into the tightest of spaces.

Checker vision sensors help our customers reduce their production costs and optimize quality by:

  • Reducing scrap
  • Reducing downtime and maintenance
  • Providing easy setup and maintenance by factory personnel
  • Simplifying the overall system design
  • Displaying and recording images
  • Eliminating the need for costly fixturing
  • Eliminating PLC programming
  • Replacing multiple photo electric sensors with fewer industrial sensorsChecker - Positioning Chart
  • Integrate Checker 4G Into Your Factory Network

    The new Checker 4G vision sensor by Cognex offers the same powerful and easy-to-use setup Checker is known for plus Ethernet networking for remote setup and monitoring, PLC communication through EtherNet/IP (EIP) and PROFINET, and the ability to save inspection images to an FTP server.

    Powering factory automation with Checker 4G enables:

    • Remote setup and display – Ethernet communication
    • PLC Communication – PROFINET and EIP (w/AOP)
    • A visual record of your inspections (FTP Images)

     

    Checker - Network Integration

    Checker 4G with Ethernet easliy integrates into your factory network. From one PC, you can remotely setup and display Checker sensor(s) on your network, communicate to your PLC, and FTP transfer an unlimited amount of images for storage and/or review.

Since our foundation in 1967, ABCON has supplied automation controls and sensor technology into most types of manufacturing process and industry sectors. We have always moved with the times, supplying the latest sensing technology as it becomes commercially available. Throughout our history we have continually formed alliances with some of the Worlds leading manufacturers of sensor technology.
