- Sensors are used in packaging to detect the front and back of blister packs being transferred on the conveyor, helping to eliminate mistakes.
Key installation points
Blister packs are often both glossy and transparent, opening the door to detection errors due to the variable amount of light received by the sensor.
With the IV2 Series, however, the auto-exposure and auto-focus functions ensure images are captured clearly even if the products are glossy and transparent. Detection is also easy regardless of user ability, and setting the detection colour is as simple as touching the target colour.
