The new Line Detect tool is included in the most recent release of Banner Engineering’s Vision Manager software (version 1.2.1). This versatile tool measures distance and angles and can reliably find a best-fit line for critical gauging applications. Line Detect can also inspect for damage or flaws along the edge of a part.
Also new to Vision Manager 1.2.1, the Data Export option enables the export of tool specific results (pass/fail, length, etc.) over RS-232 or Ethernet. Users can customize ASCII data strings to support individual requirements of a PLC or PC. This builds on Vision Manager’s export capabilities for EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, and Modbus/TCP.
Improvements have also been made to the visual feedback offered by Vision Manager. Users benefit from upgrades to the live image display as well as greater flexibility in how information and Regions of Interest (ROIs) can be viewed.
