Easy to use and flexible part localization sensor system

The PLOC2D is a vision system for 2D parts localization. The easy-to-operate sensor system is fitted with a high-quality image processing hardware which is used in combination with a powerful localization algorithm. It can therefore localize parts quickly and reliably. The housing of the sensor system has an enclosure rating of IP65. The PLOC2D is connected directly to the robot control or the PLC and is ready to use immediately. The intuitive human machine interface is designed to ensure that the PLOC2D is easy to set up and maintain in production environments.
