Vision & Control highlights from the AUTOMATICA trade fair 2008

Vision & Control was at the AUTOMATICA trade fair 2008 presenting its new products, such as the efficient data matrix code reader, ultra-small LED bar lighting and precise telecentric measuring lenses.

The new efficient data matrix code reader software module for the complex pictor and vicosys series machine vision systems allows data matrix codes to be read quickly and reliably, even with limited code quality and low contrast. Data matrix codes can also be reliably read independently of the position of the code.

Furthermore, Vision & Control is introducing the new vicotar high-resolution telecentric precision lenses for cameras with 1-inch sensors.

As with all of Vision & Control's telecentric lenses, these stand out with their excellent imaging properties and a dustproof, vibration-proof design and are thus perfectly suited to precise measurement tasks in the industrial environment.

The vicolux lighting portfolio has been supplemented with the ultra-small powerful LDL7/LAL7 LED series bar lighting. Illumination surface widths of 7 mm and 14 mm guarantee extremely bright and homogeneous illumination even in the tightest spaces.

This lighting is therefore recommended for use in line camera applications.
