PATTERN MATCHING SENSOR WITH BASIC VISION CAPABILITY
F10 • package and component presence checking
4
Omron’s advanced sensor F10 is an image-processing system in
a sensor format. It consists of two separate components, a camera
head and a processing unit. The measurement area and the
measurement field are projected directly onto the object by coloured
LEDs. An additional monitor is not required; object illumination is
already integrated into the camera head. Three different camera
choices are available, each with different sensing area sizes.
One model even includes 8-bank memory and RS-232C/422
communications capability. A teaching function guarantees quick
and easy start-up. The inspection time is 3.6 to 14.4 ms.
This sensor’s measurement methods include pattern matching,
plain measurement and automatic position compensation.

• Automatic teaching, no programming,
no parameterization
• Pattern and defect detection
• Compact camera head with integrated strobe

Before mounting a label on a bottle, the F10
checks the exact position of the bottle.
If the opening lever is not clearly identified,
a servo-motor rotates the bottle into the
correct position.
• Detects static and moving objects
• Detection time 3.6 ms to 14.4 ms
• Serial interface RS-232C/RS-422
• 8 memory banks for test programs
• Up to 9 digital I/Os
• Controller for DIN track or screw-mount

grease, which gives unwanted reflections. Conventional sensors
could not handle such a situation.

THE KEY TO SUCCESS IN VISION APPLICATIONS
20
The right illumination
It can be a great challenge for you, as the
end-user, to select the right components and
create an inspection system that meets all
your requirements. Omron supports customers
in selecting the appropriate light source and
delivers a tightly integrated inspection system.
We know that there is no universal illumination
system applicable to all kinds of vision
applications. Therefore Omron offers a variety
of lighting systems to meet the needs of all
customers and applications.
Maximize Lighting Control
With an intelligent light source camera and an
appropriate light source, the F-series controller
menus take all the guesswork out of proper
lighting. Operators can control the illuminated
area and light intensity from the controller
menus. The settings are easily changed without
direct adjustment of the light source.
Lighting positioning is stored with other scene
data so operators can change the lighting
conditions to match different operating
environments. Because the settings are stored
as numeric data, it is possible to recreate the
lighting conditions from machine to machine.
21
Perfect engineering and service
Besides the pure product-specific characteristics
of an image-processing sensor system, service
and support play a vital role. Our image processing
specialists fully support you in specifying your
application and will suggest suitable solutions for
your project including the optimal lighting and the
integration of the system in your production
process either locally or worldwide. Together with
competent system partners, we are able to deliver
complete turnkey solutions. Workshops and
product and application specific training are just
a normal part of the complete service package
that we can offer.
