Keyence describes its IV Series as “a vision sensor that anyone can use.” Designed to inspect entire parts, and not just individual points, the flexible IV Series offers stable detection and simple setup at an affordable price.
One of the key features that makes this vision sensor an attractive choice is its stable detection. Keyence has equipped the IV with a first-in-class automatic focus mechanism. This allows it to operate over a wider range than conventional vision sensors. In addition, a newly developed lens contains four layers of glass that achieve low aberration and distortion with high light-gathering power. As a result, the IV captures bright, clear images with low distortion for stable detection. Various lighting attachments are also available to help reduce glare.
Simple to use
Another feature that helps the IV Series vision sensor stand out is its ease of use. Within one minute, the system can be set up thanks to one-touch automatic brightness adjustment and focus capabilities, and fast, easy tool setup. Once this is complete, the IV Series will recognize and detect the target automatically. The simplicity of the setup allows anyone to obtain stable detection without variations arising from different experience levels — even first time vision users.
The IV Series is available with 13 different camera heads, so users can select the one that suits their needs and budget. Options include color and monochrome, amplifier-integrated models for close-, standard- and long-range applications, as well as ultra compact models with wide and narrow fields of view.
Simple, yet powerful
Even though Keyence made the IV simple to use, it is capable of a range of detections and measurements. The IV’s combination of industry-leading performance, technology and ease of use make it a great choice.
