4 Compact and industrial With their dimensions of just 130 x 59 mm, AX30/AX40 Imagecheckers help you realise the growing demand of downsizing equipment.They permit space saving DIN-rail installation in a switching cabinet or direct mounting at the inspection site. All interface connectors are located on the front side, which makes it easy to install and service the systems. Furthermore, they have an impressive record in industrial safety, which results also from the fact that they do not employ any mechanical parts such as fans or hard disks. Precise and reliable Being the successors to our...

6 Micro-Imagechecker AX30/AX40 Software Highlights Human eye-like sensitivity The colour recognition/extraction algorithms of AX30 and AX40 are based on the LCH (luminosity, chroma and hue) mode, which covers all colours a human eye can recognise. This mode allows for colour recognition more similar to that of the human eye than conventional RGB-mode colour extraction. Colour Detection, Presence Checking Measures the area of the specified region or pre-defined colours to detect foreign objects, perform presence checking, sort or count objects. Inspection examples Size Measurement Grey-scale...

7 Position detection Several algorithms in the systems are made for precisely detecting the position of an object. x/y coordinates and the rotation angle are typically output. Matching Advanced matching functions such as contour-matching and smart matching1) can be used to identify or to validate object details reliably and efficiently. 1) AX40 only Fast and easy setup Our newly designed user interface allows you to set up your inspection routine quickly. The clearly structured screen with its pull-down menus, semitransparent spreadsheets and indicators makes it easy to configure the AX30...

8 Micro-Imagechecker AX30/AX40 Special Features Colour tone diagram Fine adjustment for color inspection is possible. Even when colors resemble each other, the target color alone can be extracted to enable highly accurate inspection. Mask The shape of the inspection area can be set to match particular targets. Also, mask area settings can be combined so that efficient inspection can be carried out just for a required part. Print screen You can save setting displays or displays that occur during operation as bitmaps on a memory card. This is convenient for creating documents or for verifying...
