On the production floor, companies continue to seek ever greater safety, security, and product quality. RICOH/Pentax latest "keen eyes" were created to support such advances in reliable manufacturing. These new series of high-quality factory automation (FA) cameras bring together all the camera knowhow that RICOH/Pentax has developed over many years. Moving forward, we will support even higher production-line efficiency and reliability by continuing to develop the best FA/Factory Automation cameras in extensive range to insures dependable final image quality.
FA/Factory Automation FVL200B1
cameras satisfying a diverse range of inspection needs. The RICOH/Pentax FV Series is a line of both Camera Link and GigE Vision type cameras matched to your resolution requirements.
The FV L200B1
handles a wide range of inspection uses, such as positioning prior to liquidcrystal glass processing, circuit board mounted device part checks and mounting inspection, automotive component flaw detection, medicine tablet inspection, etc.
Exposure-interval signal output, outputs the camera exposure interval and enables efficient inspection
Exposure-interval signal output—which can start the next exposure during the transfer of the previous image—makes it possible to achieve high-speed work inspection*, thereby raising inspection efficiency. In addition, since the camera exposure interval is output externally, it can be used for various purposes.
*Limited to cases where the next exposure does not end before the completion of image transfer.
Strobe signal output enables user adjustment of exposure and the timing of light emission
There is a strobe signal output (LVCMOS level) function for light emission use. With this function, it is possible for the user to adjust the camera exposure timing (delay, time) and light emission timing (delay, time) in accordance with the trigger input signal received by the camera.
Strobe Signal Output
Lookup table (gamma curve) enables luminance settings at all gradients for creation of finely detailed images
On a camera with preprocessing functions, it is possible to correct luminance at all gradients using a lookup table prepared by the user based on subject characteristics and inspection objectives. This also reduces the burden on the personal computer CPU and increases processing speed. In addition, the lookup table can be prepared as a CSV file and uploaded.
Preprocessing functions reduce PC processing burden and increase image processing performance
On models with preprocessing functions, the camera itself has the various image processing functions shown below. Compared to cameras where there is an intervening board, it is possible to reduce the personal computer CPU burden and increase the transfer speed.
Lookup table enables finely detailed image creation.
AGC (auto gain control) enables automatic gain adjustment in camera.
Auto electronic shutter control automatically controls the shutter in response to changes in subject light intensity.
