SICK’s Inspector P30 Positioning Sensor offers a flexible method for part location and provides a precise positioning point of a known target when implementing robotic picking systems. It also adds functions for giving position information of irregular shaped objects, known as blob detection.
The P30 reports the X, Y and rotation angle of the taught part over TCP/IP Ethernet communication or via 4 digital switching outputs. When working with known objects, the user can add in “grip regions” to verify that part is unobstructed and can easily be picked by an automated picking system.
The Inspector P30 has integrated lighting, interchangeable lenses, and offers an efficient solution for a wide range of objects. Accessories like a dome light and color filters make it easier to handle difficult to inspect objects (metallic or shiny).
