Keyence, Wanaque, NJ, introduces the IV Vision sensor that combines some of the functionality of machine vision and traditional sensors in a single system.

With easy, fast set-up, taking approximately only one minute using "Easy Navigation" the IV is ready to tackle difficult detection applications that previously required multiple conventional or proximity sensors to accomplish.

The IV's standard equipment including high-intensity illumination, high-performance lenses, and a selection of 8 different sensor heads enables sharp, clear, stable images. The IV Camera selection includes close, medium, and long range models. Affordably priced, the IV complies with the IP67 enclosure rating, which is based on IEC/JIS standards. It can be used safely in dusty or wet environments.

The IV is at home with proven applications in semiconductor, electrical, electronics, automotive, food, pharmaceutical and a broad range of other manufacturing industries. Its range of built-in features includes automatic focus, automatic one-touch brightness adjustment, high-performance quad lens, and Hi-R illumination.

The IV’s Navigator software can be used with any PC for quick set-up. By simply following the steps on the screen, user set-up and operation is complete in less than a minute. A unique Auto Tuning function enables automatic optimization of threshold and parameters to further simplify and reduce set-up time.

Output adjustment, remote operation, a statistics function and a pattern tool for stable detection add further versatility in the use of this multi-function new sensor.

Additional illumination accessories and utilities include an HS-HDR Function, polarizing filters to eliminate glare, dome lights and automatic brightness correction.
