Sidewall inspection laser line sensor features dual vision capability.

Sensor technology for sidewall inspection features a dual vision capability in one sensor housing. Located on each side of the laser line, the dual cameras of the Selcom EyeCON-2 laser line sensor can detect small bulges or depressions that might be missed by single point sensors, according to the company. This is said to provide accurate surface data even at steep edges of raised lettering or embossed geometric features without data dropouts at a full 2 kHz sample rate. The much higher density data are said to reduce false rejects and increase productivity for improved safety and quality.

The EyeCON-2 line laser incorporates Smart Sensor technology to internally process image data and output the measured 3D raw profile of the tire surface. An alternative software inside data analyses software with special algorithms generated by the systems integrator or end user can also be programmed with the sensor. This is said to result in even higher efficiency and reduced systems costs, since the need for an external controller is eliminated (PC, PLC or other device), according to the company.

The company also offers a complete line of laser vision sensors. These include the Selcom SLS-5000, SLS-6000 and SLS-2401 series sensors with smart sensor technology. The company also offers the Class II EyeCON-1 laser line sensor designed for lower speed 3D cross-sectional profile scanning for rubber and tire applications. The company is said to be a leading global provider of sensor vision technology for process optimization and quality control.
