Like the Simatic MV560 U, the new Simatic MV560 X reader also features a scan mode, which can be used to separate image capture and image processing. A series of images is stored directly on the reader. This stored image series ensures reliable reading, even with fast-moving objects. In addition, the expanded memory improves diagnostics by providing larger amounts of diagnostic information, such as error images. This increases plant availability.
Modular, versatile and configurable
In addition to the new Simatic MV560 X optical reader, the portfolio for the entire Simatic MV500 series has been expanded to include a large number of high-performance, individually configurable accessories. e-focus lenses are now available in five focal lengths, which automatically focus the object to be captured, so that manual intervention by the user is not required. New, flexibly controllable ring lights have also been added. They switch automatically between different lighting variants. In addition, a large number of metal lens protection tubes in different lengths with an integrated optical filter concept in the area of the windshield are now also available for different lighting scenarios.
