INDEPENDENT IMAGE CAPTURE
Capture images out of sync based on physical machine processes and device interaction
The XG Series is capable of independent image capturing so that it captures images during the flow of operation rather than at the beginning of
the sequence. Images can be captured in sync with device movements and with no dependence on the current image processing being conducted.
Conventional systems have to wait for the return of a program to the beginning of its cycle for a new image to be obtained. This function captures images
and places them in the buffer if the XG controller is currently processing another image. Up to 1013 images can be stored in the buffer helping enable a zero
image processing delay period to maintain a high throughput during processing. PC simulations can also be
efficiently conducted with the XG software suite by directly saving the individual camera images to individual folders.

In conventional image processing, one inspection cycle consists of “image capture  inspection  output”. If multiple inspection is required on the same
target but under different lighting conditions, this cycle would have to be repeated multiple times. However, in the XG Series, a secondary image capture
can be performed straight away (after the first and before any processing starts), the lost time associated with the additional unnecessary trigger inputs, and
outputs can be eliminated.

Shading correction is a real time filter that evens out any large random shadows or glare on a target surface, leaving behind smaller defined points which are often associated to being flaws or
defects. As this is a gray scale processing filter, it dynamically changes the processed image based on the input image rather than being based on a fixed binary setting level. This ensures
consistency with target variation and changes in the raw image.

COLOR PROCESSING
Optimal color processing for stable inspections using the new color extraction engine A.C.E.II
The XG Series is equipped with a new color extraction engine. The A.C.E.II is based on the HSB color model (closest color model to the human sensory
system) to attain high color extraction performance that stabilizes previously unstable color processing schemes. The XG Series also feature fine color
processing to extract full color information exactly the way the camera captures it. This technology significantly broadens the range of color processing
applications previously accomplished by machine vision systems.
Color to Gray processing can optimize the shade gradation using hue, saturation, and brightness. This makes
it possible to convert images with low contrast into images with defined shade differences. Unlike conventional
full color processing, which picks up all tone changes and makes distinction difficult, color shade processing
can optimize the shade difference between a user-specified color and the background.

This process converts all colors to a certain

accounting for saturation and brightness
levels and potential changes.
Unlike conventional color extraction where small
color changes are hard to distinguish and
saturation & brightness are not accounted for,
the KEYENCE color extraction works with all
three aspects. As Hue, Saturation & Brightness
are all adjustable, small changes in color or
shade can be adjusted for and reliable stable
processing is ensured.

The edge required for detection
Fine color processing directly processes full color information exactly as the color camera captures it. This is
ideal for detecting stains on sheets, films and non-woven cloths where the stain can appear in any color with
respect to the background. No setup is required for color extraction, allowing users to complete the inspection
with one simple operation.

Intensity cancellation function (glare removal)
The newly added intensity cancellation function solves a common problem
of detecting all the changes when using full color processing on color

glare and lighting variations on the target background, and detecting only
the area where hue and saturation differences exist.

CHANGING LIGHT INTENSITY
& IMAGE COMPOSITION
Targets can often have different types of defects requiring different lighting methods for stable detection
(e.g. scratches/burrs and surface stains). The flexibility of the XG means multiple lighting patterns can
be cycled through and tools applied ensuring correct inspection of the part. At the same time the image
operation function enables composite images to be created so all the detected defects can be shown on
screen and processed at once per inspection.

TILT CORRECTION
LENS DISTORTION CORRECTION
The calibration function corrects for the camera angle that occurs during mounting.
Unlike trapezoidal correction, this accurately corrects the entire image by making use
of numerous calibration patterns across its field-of-view. This resultant normalized
image is also effective for image processing when forced to mount the camera at an
angle due to space restrictions.
The calibration function also corrects for lens distortion. A uniform image can be
acquired on the entire screen, allowing for accurate dimensional measurements,

PRO GR A M CREATION
VISION TOOLSET
The XG Series contains a wide range of vision tools for a variety of applications. From defect detection to barcode reading, the extensive vision toolset
gives the XG Series the power to solve any application.
Area
The Area tool uses binary processing to detect
either white or black pixels in a specified area. It
will then count the pixels in this area and can use
this measurement to perform presence/absence type
applications.
Edge Width
The Edge Width tool can find the distance between
two edges using the same method of detection as the
Edge Position tool. This tool has the ability to detect
inner/outer gaps, or user specified gaps, and allows
the user to set limits based on the distance between
the two edges.
Edge Pairs
The Edge Pairs tool is essentially an advanced
edge pitch tool. Unlike the Edge Pitch tool, the Edge
Pairs tool can scan a target twice in a user specified
direction. The double scan allows for a more stable
inspection.
Trend Edge Position
The Trend Edge Position tool can locate the
maximum and minimum positions across a length of
an edge. This tool finds the profile of an edge across
many points and outputs different positioning data.
Not only can it find a point of a straight line, it can be
used to find a circle center.
Intensity
The Intensity tool reports the grayscale intensity of
a specified region of the image. It can be used for
simple presence/absence applications or for the
Preserve Intensity filter, which stabilizes the image
brightness.
2D Code Reader
38
A 2D barcode can be detected and analyzed.
The result data can be split into 8 sections for easy
management of the decoded information. Sorting
type applications can be performed by matching
the detected code to a string reference table. (QR,
MicroQR, Datamatrix, Rectangular Datamatrix can be
read.) It is also possible to verify the quality of printed
information.
Pattern Search
The Pattern Search tool looks for a specified target on
the captured image. This can be used with other tools
to find the pattern and adjust the position of those tools
based on the pattern position. Limits can also be set
based on count, position, and match percentage.
Edge Pitch
The Edge Pitch tool finds the maximum, minimum,
and average distances between pairs of edges.
It is able to measure the width of the gaps or the
distances between the centers of the gaps. This tool
is used to inspect for equal sizing or equal spacing
over a range of parts.
Stain
The Stain tool is a great tool for defect detection.
It works by comparing adjacent groups of pixels
to each other to look for relative contrast changes.
When the contrast change is large enough, the tool
will visualize it from a range of blue to red, where red
is the greatest change in contrast.
Trend Edge Width
The Trend Edge Width tool can measure the edge
width across a length of an edge. Just like the Trend
Edge Position tool, it locates the profile of an edge
across many points to locate positions like the
minimum and maximum edge width.
Color
The Color tool looks at a specified region of the
image then reports back color information about that
region. The color values can be reported as RGB (red,
green, blue) or HSB (hue, saturation, brightness).
1D Code Reader
A 1D barcode can be detected and analyzed.
The result data can be split into 8 sections for easy
management of the decoded information. Sorting
type applications can be performed by matching
the detected code to a string reference table. (Code
39, Code 128, UPC/EAN/JAN, GS1 DataBar, ITF,
Codabar(NW7), Pharmacode can be read.)
Edge Position
The Edge Position tool will find the location of edges
within an inspection region. In this tool, the scan
direction, edge direction, and maximum number of
edges to count can be specified. This tool can count up
to 3600 edges.
Edge Angle
The Edge Angle tool can scan an image in a specified
direction to locate two edges and find the angle
formed by connecting the two edges. Once the angle
is found, limits can be set and different parameters
can be outputted, such as the edge positions and
edge angle.
Blob
The Blob tool uses binary processing to count groups
of white or black pixels. An extensive Aspect Filter
can be set to specify what kind of pixel groups you
want to consider as Blobs. Limits can be set on the
remaining blobs to perform a variety of inspections.
Trend Edge Stain
The Trend Edge Stain tool also extracts the profile of
an edge across many points. Unlike the other Trend
Edge tools, Trend Edge Stain looks for any deviations
along the found edge. It is a powerful tool for locating
imperfections like burrs, chips, flash, or short shots.
OCR
The Optical Character Recognition tool will readout
and analyze character strings in the inspection
region. This can be used for applications like lot code
inspection and serial number checking. The internal
calender can be referenced for limits and character
encryption tables can be used.
Characterization
Defect or target detection can be performed by
comparing the detected intensity levels of groups
of pixels to that of a base intensity. Light and dark
targets can be differentiated as well as be categorized
based off properties like area, volume, axis ratio,
perimeter, and roundness.

DEFECT INSPECTION
STAIN INSPECTION TOOL
A wide array of setting parameters and strong visualization tools makes this the industry standard in surface defect inspection.
The stain inspection tool finds defects such as stains and flaws by comparing the intensity of a user defined pixel grouping to that of its surroundings.
For stable reliable inspections, stains can be grouped and filtered based on size, shape and contrast level. In addition the contrast view enables real time
visualization on the performance of the tool to a user both during run and setup modes. Helping enable easy setup whilst maintaining consistent
performance allowing for quick easy on machine tuning.
Foreign particle detection on the inside of a container
Foreign particle
Conventional binary processing would not be able to detect the foreign
particles as there is very little contrast between the particles and the
dark portions of the container, however, stain inspection mode can
compare the differences with the surroundings, allowing reliable
detection of only the foreign particles.

emerge where the setting is incorrect or varies between operators. With conventional systems
complex parameter driven menus may need to be understood. It takes time and resources for
operators to be trained and sometimes due to the complex menu interface the ability to

The XG controller can be incorporated and become an integral part of a machine through
the use of the ActiveX control. A PC interface can be designed that not only interacts
with the XG Series, but also other aspects of the machine and its operation. In addition
to being able to create a PC control interface, measurement data, result information,
historical data and file management are also possible through the ActiveX control.
Multiple connections can also easily be established and configured for bringing together
multiple controllers or machines. All this allows for the collective management of multiple
systems into one interface and the development of a full production management system.

FTP IMAGES DIRECT TO A
NETWORK OR HDD DRIVE
Images cannot only be saved directly to the SD card used in the controller, but also transferred directly
to NAS* (Network Attached Storage) through a LAN connection. Long-term image storage can also be
conducted by connecting an easily sourced large capacity (10Gb, 100Gb, 1Tb etc.) external HDD. In addition,
by using the image output buffering option, continuous NG images will not be lost.
* NAS refers to a storage device that is designed for use on networks and contains file server software. Unlike USB based external drives that can be only connected point to point and need to be
configured, a NAS device becomes immediately part of the network when it is connected, making it available for all other devices to use. Thus simplifying data browsing and file sharing.

SEAMLESS DEVELOPMENT, ENABLING FAST POWERFUL YET EFFICIENT APPLICATION SOLUTIONS
The XG VisionEditor is specialized PC software that can conduct everything from the construction of image processing solutions and the creation of
user interfaces to debugging and simulations all at once. The PC software does not use programming language, and instead all operations are conducted
in an easy to understand GUI environment. Here drag-and-drop dominates, enabling complex processing to be easily developed in minimal time.
Due to the incorporation of debugging tools that simultaneously discover errors (both static and dynamic) that occur during development, man-hours
dedicated to debugging have been dramatically reduced. All in all the overall time between construction and deployment have been substantially reduced.
By focusing on the optimization of the tools required for providing a solution (the core of image processing inspections) KEYENCE has given the
opportunity for significant improvements in machine vision development efficiency.

The XG Series provides control processing including conditional branching and looping
essential to program flexibility and customization. This allows for flexible image processing
enabling switching and processing based on changing conditions. Timing controls such
as processing delays or waiting on terminal/operator interaction are also available. As the
vision flowchart can be created to interact with different machine and control processes so
the XG Series can easily become an embedded part of the overall machine and system.

AUTOMATIC & INTERACTIVE COMMAND PROCESSING
Commands like program switching, image capture, reset, start/stop operation log, and so on, typically require external control.
However such commands can now be automated and made an integral part of the image processing flowchart. The command set is of
such a power that the controller can be made to control itself. Machine functionality at higher levels than the image processing alone
is also possible with the in-built commands. For instance changing to a different displayed image, zooming in on a defect based on an
inspection result or saving image data for a certain part failure are all possible, as are many things due to the wide range of commands
available. KEYENCE has also provided the ability to create custom commands which allow the user to combine specified built-in
commands into a single command making macro based simple operation possible.

PRE-SALES SUPPORT
When looking for a vision system to solve your application needs, we understand it can be stressful and risky. This is why we offer
different ways to make sure your application is solved and implemented properly.
Direct Sales
KEYENCE’s philosophy is to work closely with the customer to provide the best
satisfaction available. This is why we do not sell through distributors, but instead
work with the customers directly. Each of our sales engineers are fully trained on our
vision systems and are experts at what they are selling. This means they can provide
a complete solution to you before the sale and support it after the sale. This is the
advantage of Direct Sales.
Vision Testing
Let us prove that we can provide you with a complete solution. Our sales engineers
will do testing on your application to fully understand the details of the project. We
also have a team of application engineers for those tough applications where they can
provide even further expertise to solve the application.
Trial Units
Take our vision systems on a test drive! We offer trial units to our customers at no cost. This will allow us to prove to you that our vision system will
provide you a stable solution and peace of mind when you decide to use KEYENCE vision systems for your application.
System Integrator Program
We have a list of preferred system integrators who have been specifically trained on
KEYENCE vision systems. They are fully capable of integrating our vision systems
in a wide range of facilities and have experience doing so. We can recommend their
service if the application is complex or if you need to implement the solution rapidly.
