Outer inspection

Key advantages

  • Just one camera
    No need for multiple cameras placed around and over the object.
  • Fast image analysis
    No image matching software is needed as the picture is not segmented.
  • Single point of view
    No perspective effects typical of multi-image systems.
  • Smooth on-line integration
    Inspected parts pass unobstructed in the free space below the lens.

Notes

  1. Working distance: distance between the front end of the mechanics and the object.
  2. The design working f-number (wf/N) is specified. The working f-number could be changed using the variable iris.
  3. Measured from the front end of the mechanics to the camera flange.

Product user guide

PC optics are designed to work with 1/3”, 1/2” and 2/3” detectors. These detectors ensure the most appropriate optical magnification factor to achieve the field depth required by high resolution 3D pericentric imaging.

The image of the top of the object and its sides are inscribed into the short side of the camera detector.

The smaller the object diameter, the larger the object height which can be inspected, while short objects can be inspected over a larger diameter.

The tables below show possible combinations of object diameters and heights along with the appropriate working distance and recommended F-number; the “r” parameter for each configuration is also listed.

The “r” parameter is the ratio between the side view height (the circular crown thickness) and the detector short side. It provides information about side view resolution. The higher the “r” value, the higher the resolution that can be achieved in the side view.
