The Complete Image Processing Solution

The complete image processing solution for all vision applications …the Wenglor VisionSysterm2D consists of up to 16 digital cameras, lenses with various fixed focal lengths, external illumination components and a control unit (IPC) with all common standard interfaces, as well as software for image evaluation.

The components of this modular system can be individually combined and adapted to the respective application – focal length, focusing, resolution, lighting and type of evaluation can be separately selected. UniVision software is used to configure parameters for image recording and for subsequent image analysis.

The Hardware

Up to 16 digital cameras with integrated image chips from Sony’s Pregius series deliver high-resolution images with 1.6 or 5MP in colour or monochrome – even in dynamic applications. With the compact housing at 29 x 29 x 29 mm, they are ideal for installation in systems with limited space. Any desired C-mount lenses can be attached to the camera for both close-up and distant ranges.

Three different types of illumination can be selected for homogenous, constant lighting within the application. Ring lights, spotlights and backlights are available in different sizes and colours: red and infrared light in flash or continuous mode are available in addition to while light.

All other image data generated by the system come together in the control unit. All processing is conducted and results are evaluated in the fanless housing (passive cooling). The unit can be equipped with either an i3 or an i7 processor.

Interfaces and Visualisation

Whether digital IOs, Gigabit Ethernet over TCP/IP and UDP or the Lima protocol based on XML is required, communication can be implemented with the most up-to-date technologies. Being able to individually configure visualisation regardless of the platform is also advantageous. Due to the integrated web server, the results can be displayed in the browser of any desired device, regardless of whether a Windows, Mac or Android operating system is used. In this way users can display images, scanned codes and statuses of inputs and outputs at a graphic user interface.

The software is easy to use with free tutorials and templates. It covers a great variety of standard applications with just a few clicks.

Easy Changeover: A Single Software Package, Three Hardware Families

UniVision all-in-one software isn’t just compatible with the new VisionSystem2D, but with the weQube smart camera and weCat3D profile sensors as well. Universal uniVision software can even be taken advantage of by users who want to measure height profiles in addition to running simple and complex image processing applications.
