Banner Engineering, Minneapolis, released a free firmware update for its iVu Plus TG. This easy-to-install software enables the simultaneous use of sensors across various regions of interest in a single inspection. Banner Engineering

The iVu Plus TG Multipoint Software enhances the sensors’ reliability and accuracy. If the sensor identifies an incorrect or missing object when conducting an inspection, the software recognizes it and alerts operators as to where the problem occurred. With the ability to monitor multiple inspections at once, users are able to streamline operations while ensuring a precise inspection.

The integrated touch screen vision sensors advance inspection capabilities with Ethernet connectivity and multiple inspections. Ethernet connectivity enables sensors to share inspection data directly with PLCs, PCs or other factory devices, making communications and control even easier on the plant floor. Capable of storing up to 30 inspections, the iVu Plus TG can also accommodate rapid product changeover.

To tackle diverse inspections, the iVu Plus TG can be configured to operate using four different sensor types. These types include area, which verifies the presence of a feature or features of interest; blemish, which identifies flaws on a part, such as scratches on a disc; match, which verifies that a pattern, shape or part in any orientation matches a reference pattern; and sort, which recognizes and sorts as many as 10 different patterns of parts, such as nuts, bolts and washers. The iVu Plus TG sensors also feature easy operation and installation, allowing users to set them up in a manner of minutes.
