When it comes to robots, sight equals intelligence. The more sophisticated the vision system, the smarter and more flexible the robotic system.
' V-500iA is no exception. Available in four different versions: 2-D, 3-D, 2-D tracking, and 3-D laser, the V-500iA transforms production. Instead of moving blindly, robots use the V-500iA to "see" an object's location, orientation, measurement, identity. Fanuc Robotics

, and loading
This advanced vision system offers multiple benefits. It is equipped with a high-tech camera to capture clear images. The V-500iA system's Geometric Pattern Matching allows the robot to recognize objects despite variations in lighting or confusing backgrounds. Another smart feature is it Multi-Plane Grid Calibration. This gives the robot the flexibility to handle parts that are different sizes and shapes at once.
Every version is PC-based with a graphical interface that is easy to use and set-up. Plus, this system has its own Ethernet connection. The V-500iA works with R-J3 and more current Fanuc
controllers. The 2-D is also compatible with the R-J2 as well. The system can handle high-speed trigger signals when scanning and adjust lighting to changing environments. An advanced encoder allows the V-500iA to keep track objects via electronic pulse.
The V-500iA utilizes through-arm flexible cabling which lasts longer and eliminates trip hazards. The system is equipped with collision recovery - another self-correcting feature that eliminates the need for as much operator intervention when an accident happens.
This vision option has unique capabilities. Using an EOA-affixed or stationary camera, it scans parts as they move along a conveyer. It then uses its sight to sort, select, and place the parts. With this option, parts no longer need to be in a specific location or held fast with fixed tooling.
This option works with the use of a laser sensor on the robot or mounted nearby. The laser eye allows the robot to select parts form a jumbled pile, tray or bin with ease.
