Epson CV2 Vision Guidance
Vision Guidance Made Easy
- Industry Leading Ease of Use for Vision Development
- Powerful Tools for Vision Guidance Applications
- Point and Click User Interface
- Distributed Processing Solution
"Powerfully simple" is what customers call our Vision Guide products. For more than 15 years, Epson Vision Guide has been used in factories throughout the world to allow Epson Robots to "see". With a unique object based point and click interface, Vision Guide allows developers to quickly develop applications in hours vs. weeks or longer. But don't let the easy to use interface fool you. Vision Guide is packed with powerful vision tools designed to help solve the toughest of vision related applications. Included as standard features are tools such as: Normalized Correlation, Geometric Search, Blob Analysis, Polar Search, Edge Tools, Frames, Lines, Points, Histogram and much more. And the best part is that Vision Guide is completely and seamlessly integrated into the Epson RC+ Development Environment which helps to reduce overall development time and save money.
At the heart of Vision Guide is the unique object based point and click interface which allows users to easily define ROI's and apply vision tools by simply dragging and dropping objects onto the image display area. Objects are strung together in a sequence to build a vision application quickly and easily. For example, a Geometric Search Tool could be used to find specific points of interest on a part and then line tools could be applied on top of the Geometric Search Tools to then determine the distance between the 2 points of interest on a part. Once the distance is checked and the part passes inspection coordinates from the found location are automatically converted to robot coordinates and the robot moves to pick up the part using those coordinates including X, Y position and rotation.Epson CV2 Vision Systems Fast Hardware
Epson CV2 vision systems take performance to the next level providing powerful vision guidance solutions at a value price. With speeds up to 8x faster than our Epson CV1 vision systems, the CV2's provide tremendous processing power for even the toughest vision applications. They contain powerful CPU's and vision processing that runs in parallel with the Epson Controller allowing for maximum throughput. With the tight integration to Epson RC+, Epson CV2 systems are easily programmed via the industry leading Epson RC+ Development Environment. A point and click interface reduces development time from weeks to hours so no time is wasted solving your next robot guidance application. Two (2) core models are available depending on speed requirements. (CV2-S and CV2-H with the CV2-H being approximately 2x the speed of the CV2-S)Mobile and Fixed Camera Configurations Provided
All Epson CV2 Systems are equipped with high flex cables (Ethernet or USB). By using high flex cables as standard with all CV2 systems, the Epson CV2 Cameras can be mounted to the robot arm (mobile) or mounted to a fixture (fixed). Wizard based calibration makes robot to vision system calibration and snap and allows for upward or downward camera calibrations.GigE and USB Cameras Supported
With the Epson CV2, both GigE and USB 2.0 cameras are supported. Up to 6 cameras (4 GigE AND 2 USB 2.0) can be connected to 1 CV2 system. (2 CV2 Systems can be used with 1 Epson RC90 or RC700 Controller)Standard and High Resolution Cameras Available
The standard Epson CV2 system comes with a 640x480 resolution camera (GigE or USB). However, 2 Megapixel (1600x1200) and 5 Megapixel (2560x1920) are available for high precision applications or when a larger field of view is required. Color cameras are also available up to 5 Megapixels in resolution.
