With three input and three output connections, the In-Sight 7000 smart camera has sufficient capacity to meet the needs associated with virtually any inspection application.
Two photoelectric sensors in one housing that combine logic evaluation intelligently with one another – the MultiLine sensor proves to be a high-end sensor in difficult situations for detecting flat or textured objects.
The special characteristic of the MultiLine sensor is the two parallel light lines, i.e. the compact W4 housing accommodates not one but two photoelectric sensors operating simultaneously. And “two eyes” detect better, particularly when objects, such as printed circuit boards have gaps or openings or if – in the case of blister packs or soup packets – they are exceedingly flat.
The MultiLine sensor facilitates faster production sequences since the distances between objects can be reduced. The sensor position no longer needs to be modified for format changes since the sensor is able to detect objects independently of their position. The reliable signal of the sensor from the arriving to the departing edge places less demands on the control software since it no longer needs to be debounced or evaluated. The MultiLine sensor offers high process reliability because all objects are detected independently of their structure, geometry and surface properties and placing the sensor into operation is as easy as pressing a button.
The DataMan 300 series of readers was developed to handle the most difficult-to-read DPM (Direct Part Mark) codes as well as challenging 1-D linear barcodes and 2-D Data Matrix codes and for indexed or high-speed lines.

The UE410 Flexi Controller provides a unique solution for safety-relevant applications. Historically, safety logic has been implemented using either hardwire techniques with safety relays, or via expensive safety programmable logical controllers (safety PLCs). UE410 Flexi Controllers take advantage of the benefits of both technologies. When you connect safety input devices to the UE410 Flexi Controller system, the logic is implemented using rotary DIP switches. Solid state safety outputs, rated at 1.6 Amps each (3.2 Amps available per module), provide sufficient current capability to drive a variety of actuator loads without using electromechanical relays.
