Industrial Camera

Providing a wide range of sensors, camera formats and control methods as wel as individual interfaces to meet a wide range of customer needs.

Smart Photo Sensor

Smart Photo Sensor


A Smart Photo Sensor is ultra-compact and contains high-speed image processing system. A device that can construct an image system by one chip is used in this sensor. It is capable to high-speed process the image because of preprocessing in the device, and it is also capable to determine a result that a former photoelectric sensor was incapable to.
An interface supplies GPIO, USB and RS-232, and it is possible to embed them in various uses. GPIO is used for determining the permission for the result of preprocessing, and USB is used for changing the parameters and the image transfer. RS-232 is prepared for recognition of the object position and PLC transmission.
It is possible to choose a suitable application and embed it according to conditions of use such as the environment, the object and the result of preprocessing. As for application development, Visual Architect (optional) with user-friendly and graphical programming environment is prepared and the customers can arrange it.
The Smart Photo Sensor is the most ideal for a customer who requests a scene that the former photoelectric sensor was incapable to determine or simple preprocess that does not require high-quality image processing system.
The Smart Photo Sensor supports RoHS restricting of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment.

Applications Development Software "Visual Architect"

VA Key Features

The Visual Architect is a graphical programming environment conceived for graphically creating, compiling, executing and debugging Vision Applications for the SPS02.
The VA allows the user to create vision applications just by adding blocks to a diagram, so little coding is needed.

The "workbench" is the development environment desktop of the Visual Architect where you edit, compile and execute your graphical applications.
Figure 1 shows an example of the workbench. The "workbench" is the development environment desktop of the Visual Architect where you edit, compile and execute your graphical applications. Figure 1 shows an example of the workbench.
