NELA Smart Sensor
Smart Sensor

NELA offers a series of independent, high-performance sensors for inspection as a reply to individual requirements for direct integration into your production or assembly lines. To ensure more versatility, the sensor illumination levels are programmable for an accurate and targeted exposure of your parts. In conjunction with a customizable field of view, the high-performance sensor supports high-precision geometry-measurement and surface inspection of your parts.

The integration of field-proven NELA VisionCheck image processing and control software in the machine network guarantees the exchange of statistical information, which ensures early detection of occurring fluctuations in the manufacturing quality.

An efficient implementation of extensive inspection allows for multiple sensors to be integrated in a production or assembly line.

 

System configuration

The sensor is first calibrated for a specific defect with the configuration tool. The sensor unit will be integrated into your production line where it will inspect the parts along the line, ideally right in front of a sorting station. An interface allows for data transfer from the Smart Sensor to your control system which can then take care that the parts are correctly sorted.

The Smart Sensor can detect a large variety of defects, which leads to different sorting options. You can, for example, sort your parts by good/bad, or according to different quality aspects. With the NELA Smart Sensor you have the option to integrate a quality checke wherever you need one along your production line!
