Nuevas aplicaciones versátiles

La tecnología SmartRunner es una combinación única de tecnología de sección de luz y un sensor de visión en 2D con LED integrados. Esta innovadora combinación ofrece aplicaciones totalmente nuevas para las exigentes tareas de detección y permite el diseño de procesos eficientes con garantía de futuro.
Puesta en marcha a través de Plug&Play

Puesta en marcha a través de Plug&Play

Cada uno de los sensores de sección de luz de la gama SmartRunner se preconfigura de fábrica para una aplicación específica. A diferencia de otros sensores, el usuario no recibe datos sin procesar que se deban evaluar cuidadosamente primero, sino señales digitales fáciles de procesar. Los usuarios simplemente necesitan montar el dispositivo, conectarlo y parametrizarlo mediante su programación, eso es todo.
Flexibilidad en el ajuste de la producción

Flexibilidad en el ajuste de la producción

Gracias a una cámara de visión integrada, los sensores se pueden parametrizar fácilmente utilizando códigos de control Data Matrix. Una vez generado un código, los usuarios pueden programar con facilidad cualquier número de sensores. Especialmente cuando la producción se debe ajustar con frecuencia, los usuarios pueden actuar con rapidez y flexibilidad.
Montaje práctico y rápido

Montaje práctico y rápido

Los sensores SmartRunner están equipados con un espejo de desviación que amplía la longitud de base. Esto reduce los requisitos de espacio y permite una carcasa extremadamente compacta. En combinación con la conexión giratoria, incluidos los LED adicionales, el conjunto es especialmente fácil de manejar, incluso en espacios reducidos.

The Innovative SmartRunner Technology

Laser Light Section Technology: Precise and Reliable
The laser light section technology stands for maximum precision and reliability—regardless of the color and surface properties of the objects to be detected. It is based on a laser line that is aligned with the target object. The camera detects the wavelength of the laser line and uses this information to map the height profile of the object. Due to the downward-offset position of the camera, the exact height profile can then be calculated using the triangulation principle and output in world coordinates. This method is ideal for detecting, monitoring and measuring even the smallest objects.
Reliable Profile Detection—even on Reflective Surfaces
The advantages of laser light section technology over typical vision sensors are particularly evident in difficult environmental conditions. Even with low-contrast objects, such as metal on metal or single-color plastics, no external lighting is required. Neither surfaces or colors nor ambient light have any influence on the measurement result.
2-D Vision Sensor Integrated
The integrated vision camera makes is possible to record images with a laser profile sensor, for example, to document process conditions or quality characteristics. The recording of error images saves the user walking distances from the control station to the plant and enables easy inspection of machine areas that are difficult to access. The powerful LEDs always provide excellent, well-lit images.
Compact Design with Maximum Performance
The small housing of 55 × 38 × 85 mm (L × W × H) allows easy mechanical integration, even in confined installation conditions. By using a deviation mirror, a virtual base length extension is realized, which makes the laser profile especially compact. The swiveling connection simplifies installation, while the sensor’s outstanding performance is permanently convincing.

Listos para usar: sensores con aplicaciones específicas para procesos eficientes

La tecnología SmartRunner ofrece aplicaciones totalmente nuevas para tareas de detección exigentes y permite el diseño de procesos eficientes con garantía de futuro. Conozca los primeros representantes de la nueva familia de productos SmartRunner: el detector SmartRunner y el emparejador SmartRunner.

SmartRunner Explorer

The Specialist for Height Profile Output

SmartRunner Explorer







The SmartRunner Explorer offers the unique combination of height profile and 2-D image output in one compact sensor. Using laser light section technology, the sensor reliably detects the height profile of an object—regardless of the surface and lighting conditions. It then provides the raw data of the height profile so that the user can process it individually. As a unique feature, the SmartRunner Explorer additionally outputs 2-D surface images, simplifying diagnosis and documentation of line data.

The laser profile sensor can be easily integrated into PC programs via Ethernet TCP/IP and the included DLL for C#, enabling the individual implementation of applications.


Typical Applications:

  • Measurement and volume detection
  • Quality control
  • Individual applications by using raw data

SmartRunner Matcher

The Specialist for Profile Matching

SmartRunner Matcher






The SmartRunner Matcher ensures reliable profile comparisons at all times, regardless of surface condition, lighting or ambient light—even with particularly low-contrast objects. To do this, the sensor verifies the detected profile, the correct position and the optimum distance of an object and compares the detected profile with the previously taught reference profile via trigger. The integrated evaluation unit is programmed to report deviations from the reference profile, so that the sensor outputs a “good” or “bad” signal depending on whether the profiles are identical or different.

The sensor can be commissioned quickly and easily: via the Vision Configurator, by DataMatrix control code or by guided operation and parameterization with the software wizard, which enables step-by-step configuration without a manual. In addition, the user can freely define the object and displacement tolerances and output position data separately. The SmartRunner Matcher therefore offers the optimal solution for robust and cost-efficient presence, completeness and position detection of components.
 

Typical Applications:

  • Detection of small parts such as rivets, screws, and clamps
  • Completeness checks for pens, pills, etc.
  • Position testing and output for boxes, pallets, and other objects

SmartRunner Detector

The Specialist for High-Precision Monitoring

SmartRunner Detector







The SmartRunner Detector offers the optimal solution for high-precision monitoring tasks. Whether highly reflective, transparent or absorbent surfaces—due to the additional background evaluation, the sensor reliably detects even objects that are not recognizable at first glance. The sensor responds immediately to interfering objects in the detection range due to the interrupted background line, therefore ensuring the user absolute process reliablility.

The SmartRunner Detector can be easily parameterized via DataMatrix control codes, via the parameterization software or via plug-and-play. The laser line just only has to be aligned to a fixed background such as a wall and taught in. Alternatively, teach-in can also be performed via keystroke or via the parameterization software in an empty room. In addition, the SmartRunner Detector offers the option of freely defining object sizes in a specific monitoring area, the so-called region of interest (ROI), in order to avoid false alarms caused by external influences.


Typical Applications:

  • Area monitoring for the protection of sensitive machine parts
  • Inspection of overlapping components for quality control
  • Access monitoring
