Software Options

[Option 1] Slider Mounting Support Option

Mount the 3D Vision Head onto a slider and enable measurements from multiple spots. Correctly output position and posture (6DOF) for each recognized work with the robot coordinate system at each movement spot that has been pre-registered.

[Option 2] External PC Dictionary Creation Option

This enables dictionaries to be created on PCs other than the PC connected to the 3D Vision Head.

[Option 3] Batch Recognition by Multi-Pallets Option

This enables a reduction in recognition time by placing multiple pallets that have been placed in the same field of view, and taking advantage of the fact that the work in one pallet does not influence other pallets at the time of picking to recognize multiple parts in one capture. This also applies to partitioned pallets that divide one pallet into multiple regions.

[Option 4] Consecutive Recognition Checking Option

This enables a reduction in recognition time by detecting the changed regions and determining that capturing is not required for the next parts recognition when there are works which are able to be grasped outside the changed regions.

[Option 5] Partial Work Recognition Option

This enables a reduction in wrong position and pose recognition by using CAD data of a size that fits in the measurement range or CAD data of only a part with low tolerance, even if the work to be measured is of a size that exceeds the measurement range or of a shape which significantly differs from that of the CAD data.

[Option 6] Measurement Field Expansion Option

Measurement Field Expansion Option applies to RV1100, which has the largest vision field in RV Series.
The measurement field expands by 71.4% compared to that of current RV1100.
It allows to use much larger pallets yet still guarantees accuracy and calibrations within the expanded area.8
