Sharp Manufacturing Systems Co., Ltd.
Our headquarters has received
ISO14001 certification
(environmental management system).
The IV-C35M assists you with improved
inspection and measurement precision, as well
as offering better productivity and quality control.
A variety of color filters and a color extraction function clearly distinguish subtle differences in tone and density.
Conventional monochrome cameras cannot
distinguish subtle differences in hue and contrast,
even if they are equipped with custom filters. In
addition to filtering the three primary colors (red,
green, and blue), the IV-C35M can make accurate
images of objects using brightness and other
optional filters, in order to inspect and measure their
qualities. It also has a color extraction function.
Color filter functions for the three primary colors (RGB) and
brightness and 5 optional filters allow easy evaluation.
Color extraction function that can
evaluate a variety of colors.
Select the color components and brightness of an area you want to evaluate, and
display just the specified component. Then convert it to a 256 gray scale or
binary image.
Specify a color to extract from the original image.
The controller eliminates all areas of the image
except those that have the specified color. Then, it
converts what is left into a binary image.
The color filter can be set to display the specified color brightly after gray scale image
NOTE processing. This is effective in evaluating subtle differences in color, or for finding flaws or
dirt that have similar colors or tones.
Original color image
Color extraction
For example, you can
extract just the blue area
of the letter "E" in the
image on left.
Improvements in productivity and quality are critical
issues in production. Of course, these issues are equally
important to inspection and measurement processes.
Sharp has contributed new solutions for inspection and
measurement processes by developing low-priced, highperformance image sensor cameras that leave the others
behind. Now, aiming for even greater improvements in
productivity, we have developed the IV-C35M compact
color image sensor camera. It can inspect and measure
workpieces with minute differences in hue and contrast
that would have been impossible to evaluate using
conventional monochrome cameras. While keeping the
highly sophisticated specifications of earlier models, such
as a unique partial image capture function, this camera is
equipped with a variety of color filters and advanced
measurement programs. Operability has been greatly
improved with features such as interactive, descriptionbased parameter settings that can be used by anyone,
and an easy to read color screen. We would like you to
consider our IV-C35M compact color image sensor
camera if you want to make greater improvements in
productivity and quality control. It can be used for
inspections and measurements in many ways.
R (red) filter
G (green) filter
B (blue) filter
Displays red areas more brightly.
Displays green areas more
This color extraction function not only works with
hue and saturation, but also with brightness.
NOTE Therefore, achromatic objects that cannot be
processed using a color filter can still be extracted.
* The controller can extract up to 8 colors in one object type. By
specifying multiple object types, it can be used to evaluate even
more colors.
Conventional monochrome processing
Conventional gray image
If the hue or color saturation is
very similar between adjacent
areas, the images cannot be
The density of this image can
be measured. However, the
hue and color saturation cannot
be evaluated.
Other applications
The optional filter is effective if
the RGB filters are not used to
show areas as brighter.
Brightness filter Optional filter
Displays areas that are within the
specified brightness range (within the
specified upper and lower limits)
more brightly.
Specify the optimum color filter
parameters to use, based on
the original image conditions.
●Can be used to make the following inspections and measurements (using the color extraction function)
Check for lit LEDs in mobile phones
Check whether or not the LEDs in a mobile phone are lit
properly. (Also effective in inspecting the color indicators
on an LCD display.)
Check for incorrect wire harness
Detect whether a wire harness is wired as called
for in the specifications.
- Inspect letters with different colors or
background colors.
- Distinguish filled and empty containers
when both the material and the container
have similar colors.
- Detect missing pills in a card of pills.
- Check for the presence of an adhesive
agent when there is only a small
difference between the color density of
the base material and the agent.
Sorting inspection of parts
Inspect by evaluating the color of caps
Sort parts with almost no difference and which
therefore cannot be identified by their shape.
Sort caps and prevent contamination of different
types of material by checking the color of each cap.
For example, apply marks
with different color for each
part type. Then detect the
marks and sort different
types of parts.
Provide good or NG judgments and detect
incorrect positions of objects using area
measurement and object counting by binary
A wire harness inspection looks at the
arrangement of the wires by checking for the
specified wire colors using color evaluation and
color position measurement.
Determine whether a color mark matches the
reference color using color evaluation and area
measurement by binary conversion.
Evaluate whether the cap color matches the
reference color.
Thanks to the variety of measurement menu items and the simplified operation,
it can be operated by inexperienced people.
Reducing the cycle operation time contributes to improved productivity.
When you want to use the machine to make inspections and measurements with high precision
The measurement menu has been improved
urther by adding new menu items.
The IV-C35M can be used to make a variety of measurements
and inspections such as looking for uneven color or evaluating
the color of objects.
In addition to conventional measurement menu items, new
items have been added for color related functions. Just select
the menu program items that match your application. 18
measurement menu items are available. Use a remote keypad
to select items from the menu. You don’t need to spend the time
or pay the price of creating sophisticated programs for precise
measurements. You can start using the IV-C35M in your
operation the same day you receive it.
- For details about each measurement program, see the back cover of this leaflet.

Do you want to shorten your cycle times?
Five CCD trigger functions are included in the controller
and there is no need for an external sensor.
Shorten the total processing cycle time
using two cameras.
Two color cameras (IV-C30C5) or two high-speed monochrome
cameras (IV-S30C3/C4) can be connected to one IV-C35M
controller. This feature can reduce the cycle time even more by
creating a system designed for things like simultaneous positioning
of two points, simultaneous inspection of two positions on a
workpiece, and capturing two images with a simultaneous shutter,
which can be shown on a split display screen.
* Combined use of color and monochrome cameras is not possible.
Inspect printing on packages
camera 1

Select the set wizard from the main screen, and then just select the appropriate items on each screen. Since you can advance quickly
while confirming the settings you are making, you can eliminate mistaken settings and be ready to start operations within a short time.
camera 2
The set wizard is especially
effective for operators who are
not familiar with image sensor
cameras and want begin using
a camera for the first time.
- By inspecting both the front and
back of a package, you can
reduce the inspection process
cycle time. It can be used in a
number of applications to inspect
glass bottles, cans of food,
chemicals, and cosmetics.
A partial image capture function, a special feature from
Sharp, reduces the image-capture time even more.
If you want to reduce your inspection and measurement
times, you can use our unique partial image capture
function. The partial image capture function limits the area
an image is taken from, reducing the capture time by 1/2.
●Setting up measurement programs using the menu tree
●Screens can also be edited as you wish
The menu tree (which shows the layered organization of the screens at a glance)
allows you to advance through each layer and the necessary menu items quickly, with
confidence. If you want to see a screen to confirm your settings, you can go directly to
the specific screen from the menu tree.
You can edit the operation screen by moving, enlarging or
reducing and displaying or hiding information on the
operation menu.
Selected from a popup menu.

A maximum of 32 object types can be registered, to deal
with lots of different object types and small lot production.
Want to decrease the time spent setting up a process? Want to use a simple operation to make settings quickly?
The menu tree and set wizard functions guide you through the operation procedures.
Even a beginner can set up the camera easily, without any difficulty.
●Make settings using the set wizard.
Five CCD trigger functions are
included: color, binary conversion,
average density, gray search, and
edge detection. Since the controller
can trigger measurement when a
specified color is detected, there is no
need for an external sensor. You can
cut your initial costs and you don’t
need to position or adjust an external
sensor for each object type.
To make inspections and measurements of multiple object types
and small lots, each object type can have different object shapes
and colors, so the number of items you can register is actually
larger. The IV-C35M can register up to 32 object types, the largest
number in the field, and it allows you to make a quick change of the
object being processed. By using a memory card (192 Mbytes), you
can actually save the settings for up to 1200 object types.
No need for a tilting angle correction jig, since the
IV-C35M has a 360°-rotation correction function.
Since the controller can correct the rotation of an image through a
full 360°, it can evaluate large angular deviations in printing on
packages, and it can be used as a robotic eye for a chucking
Electronic shutter function can be set as high as 1/10000sec
The shutter speed can be set between 1/30 and1/10000 sec for
each object type, and you can obtain stable, clear images, even
when the objects are being fed at high speed.
This unit can adjust the light level without changing the lighting
when the object type is changed.
Do you want to export your product?
The IV-C35M has applied for CE marking and it can be
installed in machines intended to be sold overseas.
It can be installed on products that will be shipped abroad. It will
provide productivity improvements in overseas production bases,
the same as when used in domestic factories.
* When you want to capture 240 lines of
the 480 lines available.
Even operators with experience in
setting up image sensor cameras
NOTE will find that the unique menu tree
is effective.
