Cable inspection

EVT Wire Inspector

The EVT Wire Inspector can inspect cables and connectors for their correct contact assignment and can be either used for a hand-work place or for the automatic cable assembly directly online, where it is integrated in the machine.

The system is based on the EyeVision software and is easily adapted to your applications. The hardware includes the EmSys computing unit and an industrial camera of the supported makers such as e.g. Allied Vision Technologies, Basler, Baumer, Teledyne Dalsa, Flir, etc.

Teach-in with only one button

With the “One-Button-Train”, the definition of the cable colors and their position can be trained with only one click. The position of the color has to be pre-configured, which can be carried out on a good part. On this good part all inspection windows learn automatically the color and generate a respective result protocol. The connector can be detected in any rotation and position.

 Manually and automatically

The 8 inputs and 8 outputs allow to directly control a signal lamp to indicate an error, for e.g. a handwork-place. The connected monitor shows at the same time, which cables are effected.

There are different interfaces available for fully automated systems for example, the direct Profinet connection to a PLC or I/O-based communication.

For any number of connectors

The system can be pre-configured for any number of connectors. Therefore different connectors or assembly variations can be either transferred via a master computer or a code reader is connected to the system, which switches the inspection programs according to the code.

Data storage and retraceability

The user has many options available, for example to save the data in an SQL data base or automatically compare the protocol of the respective connector with the master computer. The system is ideally prepared to also read codes on the connectors, to protocol them and send them directly to the connected master computer. A 100% retraceability can therefore be reached.

EyeSens WireInspector Sensor

The EyeSens WireInspetor can inspect cables and cable trees for their correct cable assignment. It checks for presence and color of the cables.

 

What does the EyeSens WireInspector?

The vision sensor can inspect a cable and connector for:

  • the correct cable assignment
  • the correct color and presence of the cable
  • and also the bar code on cable trees for a correct assignment and 100% retraceability

The vision sensor hardware

The vision sensor is very robust. Vibrations and fast movement are compensated by the sensor easily. It also contains:

  • optionally integrated LED illumination and lens or
  • C-Mount connecton and
  • a IP67 housing

The Software

Additionally the handling of the vision sensor is very easy. Specially thanks to the integrated illumination and lens it is a plug-and-play camera with industrial standard.

The integrated EyeVision software offers additional advantages:

  • graphical user interface (GUI)
  • drag-and-drop-programming
  • creation of inspection program without programming skills
  • special color command and grid command extention
