Designed to simplify product and process inspections with ultra-small footprint, the new compact MicroHAWK V/F400 and V/F300 series smart cameras from Omron Automation Americas  combine code reading and vision inspection capabilities into a single miniature device to inspect products that vary in size, shape, or desired inspection type. According to Omron, the camera’s cutting-edge liquid lens autofocus technology and advanced X-Mode algorithms can read any code on any surface, including curved, shiny or otherwise textured materials—minimizing downtime and keeping production moving smoothly. Easy to embed within space-constrained equipment or to mount onto small robots, the high-resolution five-pixel cameras can be supported wide variety of supported communication interfaces, including Ethernet/IP and PROFINET.
