B&R Vision system is designed to implement a single machine vision functionality, such as QR code reading or position detection. Unlike many other devices in its class, there is no need to install dedicated hardware for each function. Instead, the user simply configures the desired Smart Sensor function in the Automation Studio engineering tool. OEMs only have to stock a single camera type and are nevertheless able to support a wide range of applications.
For single task (read, measure, locate, etc.)
Function defined in project, not by item number.
Simple configuration replaces complex programming
Simultaneous use of multiple functions
Easy graphical links between functions
Adapt functions at runtime using recipes
Switch from a Smart Sensor with no parameter changes.
