The MicroHawk is a small, versatile and
powerful vision system that comes in Identification and Machine View series. In
this article and video we will focus on the MV or Machine Vision version.
The MicroHAWK MV series is capable of the most common
fundamental machine vision functions: location, counting, measurement, and
Available in a variety models and sizes the MicroHawk MV
series is capable of on Machine inspection, verification, and Identification, all
of which are programmed with the easy-to-use AutoVISION software.
The entire family of MicroHawk products come in a variety of
small form factors with sizing as small as 19 x 28
x 33 mm and weighing in at less than 14 grams. This incredibly small
footprint makes it capable of integrating into robotics, product design, or
even hiding it in the smallest areas of your machine. With the option of built
in LED’s, dark areas are no issue for Microscan.
With built in features like the “Counting” tool, The MV is
capable of determining the amount of similar objects present within the specified
image automatically. Saving you not only time but also giving you the peace of
mind knowing that parts won’t go out with any faults.
Another tool built into the MV programming software is the
“Measurement” or gauging tool. The MV can calculate distances between two
components of a product very precisely after a simple calibration. Measuring
the distance of two objects, the amount of fluid in a vile, or even the
circumference of a circle helps prevent any unnecessary contact damage to parts
virtually eliminating contact gauging.
One of the most impressive features of the MicroHawk MV is
the “Decoding” tool. The MV version is also capable of 1D and 2D decoding helping
with track and trace programs in the industry. The decoding tool can automatically
decipher the barcode Symbology type with ease, preventing any excess grunt work
needed to figure out what code came with the product.
With other built in tools such as OCR Detection, color
detection, string match, string format, logic expression and quality
verification make the MicroHawk MV a stand out and standalone solution. The
ability to program all these components directly in the software eliminates the
need to perform excess programming with your PLC or scripted type programming,
saving you valuable time.
