The Boa 200 is packaged in a small rugged IP67-rated enclosure that fits easily into existing production lines, machinery or moving equipment, especially where space is at a premium or where washdown is required. Like the other models in the Boa range, it is available with a choice of monochrome or colour sensors as well as three versions of embedded software to provide users with maximum flexibility. Sensor resolution ranges from 640 x 480 pixels to 1600 x 1200 pixels.
The embedded software applications available are: iNspect Express, IDR and Sherlock. The versatile iNspect Express software is designed to offer a balance between ease-of-use and flexibility, while IDR is a subset of iNspect Express streamlined for identification and tracking applications. Sherlock is an advanced application that offers maximum design flexibility and can be applied to a wide variety of automated inspection applications. All three software packages include a comprehensive suite of tools and capabilities, as well as support for standard factory protocols such as Ethernet/IP, Modbus and ProfiNet.
