Application Spotlight Integrate Sharpshooter Vision Sensors on Industrial Networks

Low-end vision sensors help many customers solve a variety of applications for a fraction of the cost of higher end vision solutions. But these lower cost solutions tend to have less data communication options and have only simple built-in outputs and inputs. Balluffs BVS Sharpshooter is a vision sensor that can handle up to 24 different inspection points and can be programmed with simple logic on its three outputs. The Sharpshooter also has inputs which can be for a trigger sensor and for job switching between 20 different, internally-stored recipes. Utilizing all of these inputs and outputs on an industrial network is made simple by implementing the BVS/BNI adaptor.

PS_042 Integrate Sharpshooter Vision Sensors on Industrial Networks 2009-12

In this application, the Sharpshooter vision sensor was used to verify lid position on a coffee container running on a conveyor. Utilizing the internal logic controls, a trigger sensor (not shown) and a back light, the Sharpshooter was able to detect if the lid was present, if the lid was not secure, and if the lid was correctly in place. The application demanded that the Sharpshooters inputs and outputs be connected to the controller through EtherNet/IP to the PLC. The BVS/BNI adaptor was used to connect the Sharpshooter to a Balluff I/O Block which communicated via EtherNet/IP to the controller.

The BVS/BNI adaptor allows the three outputs and two inputs of the Sharpshooter, as well as an additional external light source, to be connected to any Balluff I/O network block. See table below for connection details. When using the Sharpshooter advanced, configurable and flexible output logic links any tool or combination of tools to any of the three discrete outputs. See website for further application details.
