Vision Sensors—Three Examples for Industrial Vision in Material Handling (Part 2)
Whether control, positioning, or monitoring—the tasks of vision sensors in storage and material handling could hardly be more diverse. Pepperl+Fuchs offers a comprehensive portfolio in the area of industrial vision for the various requirements of these tasks. In this blog article, you will gain insights into three applications for vision sensors in material handling and learn what advantages the products used can also offer for your application.
1. Industrial Event Camera VOC Monitors Automated High-Bay Warehouses
Automated high-bay warehouses with stacker cranes enable fast storage and retrieval and ensure optimum use of warehouse space. In deep-freeze storage facilities, for example, it is particularly important that the processes run without interruptions to ensure a continuous cold chain. The VOC industrial event camera with integrated memory function is suitable for monitoring these storage and retrieval processes. For this purpose, the IP camera is mounted directly on the stacker crane and records the last sixty seconds of the continuous video livestream in HD quality in its integrated ring buffer. As soon as an error or other defined event occurs as a so-called trigger, the temporarily stored data is transferred to the permanent memory of the integrated SD card. The camera stores up to sixty seconds before and after the event. This allows users to quickly and easily access the relevant recording of the situation for immediate error analysis or long-term process optimization.
