Banner's P4 GEO Vision Sensor Provides an easy-to-use, single-function, low-cost vision sensor to handle 360º part rotation inspections.

Banner's PresencePLUS Pro vision sensor defined low cost vision sensing and the PresencePLUS P4 GEO continues this progression -making it even easier and affordable for the traditional sensing marketplace to adopt and deploy vision sensing capabilities at multiple points in their application. Holste added that a key factor to Banner's vision products success is that the complete PresencePLUS vision sensor family features a common user interface that is considered by many to be the easiest-to-use on the market today. Its intuitive interface allows anyone with even basic PC abilities to easily set up an inspection.

The P4 GEO offers several features that make it particularly easy to deploy on the factory floor. A remote TEACH feature allows the sensor to learn new features it will need to inspect for -without connecting to a PC or shutting down the line. New inspections are learned real time while production is running. The built-in live video image output allows users to view the sensor's inspections in real time and to also view failed inspection images without the use of a PC. The P4 GEO vision sensor can interface to machines and factory networks via its built-in 10/100 Ethernet connection, RS-232 or discrete input/outputs.

The high-throughput feature detection abilities of the PresencePLUS P4 GEO make it ideal for a broad range of applications in the packaging, pharmaceutical, assembly, baking, automotive, metalforming and semiconductor industries. Applications for the P4 GEO include part identification and orientation to eliminate errors by rejecting incorrect parts before they are assembled or packaged; assembly verification to inspect for all critical features and to error proof the manufacturing process; and correct label verification at high speed production rates.

The PresencePLUS P4 GEO performs like a vision sensor yet facilitates changeover as easily as a standard photoelectric sensor. Now users can apply vision sensing in machines and on manufacturing lines where it was previously impractical. Without the need for fixturing, overall costs are reduced and inspection throughputs are increased. The P4 GEO can inspect up to 6,000 parts-per-minute with typical inspections averaging 1,500 parts-per-minute.

Compact, self-contained P4 GEOs are available in both in-line and right-angle versions, defined by the location of the lens on the end or side of the sensor housing. Both versions measure only 66.8 mm (2.63") wide and the in-line model measures 136.1 mm (5.36") long while the right angle model is just 124.5 mm (4.90") long. Included mounting brackets facilitate easy location of the P4 GEO sensors on machines or conveyors. The units feature 3 bi-color LED indicators to clearly show unit status during setup and operation. Banner also offers hundreds of specialized lighting and lensing options to solve even the most challenging applications.
