Laetus launches new SmartSpect Camera
Laetus, August 2018. High line speeds in production and packaging processes represent a major challenge to optical quality controls. The new SmartSpect Camera from Laetus produces and processes high-resolution images in one single compact unit, even at the highest line speeds. The detailed data forms a reliable basis for successful quality control.
Laetus has launched the next generation of fully-integrated smart cameras for measurable optical quality control with SmartSpect. The intelligent camera system combines a camera and high-performance image processing in one single unit.
The CMOS sensors used provide high-resolution images, even at high line speeds. The integrated Intel Dual Core Embedded Processor quickly processes the image data acquired and there is no need for an additional PC or controller.
The equipment package includes comprehensive vision inspection applications for checking barcodes and for OCV and OCR readings. The product launch provides the option of 2 different resolutions, both monochrome, and different lighting variations. All versions have a C-mount lens and a connection for a liquid lens as standard. The systems are operated either by a connected ARGUS wt system or independently via the NAVIGATOR touchscreen browser.
The new cost-effective camera system is easy to install and is therefore suitable for inspections and controls on packaging lines that can be covered with just one camera. Existing versions of the INSPECT wt software applications are compatible and can therefore continue to be used. The pre-configured equipment versions have a short delivery time and are also easy to install in confined spaces and difficult industrial environments as a result of their compact design.
Thanks to its integrated high-performance image processing the new SmartSpect camera system provides clear sharp images, including at the highest production speeds. The ideal basis for measurable optical quality control.
