Balluff's New SmartCamera Lite Focuses on Quality Control

New Model Delivers Cost-Effective Solution for Machine Vision

The latest addition to Balluff's SmartCamera portfolio provides a cost-effective option for manufacturers wanting a machine vision system but not requiring image analysis features.


The new BVS XL SmartCamera Lite is a simplified version of Balluff's existing smart camera. It provides the same quality control of objects but without some tools that aren't needed for simpler tracking and monitoring applications.

This new lite model is another option for customers needing a machine vision system but not requiring all the image analysis of the full-size smart camera models. But, like our other smart cameras, it allows customers to detect production defects early in the manufacturing process. It detects machine codes, text including serial numbers, and guides robots in position finding.

It is easy to implement all of its testing routines with the built-in Cockpit software. All you need to configure the SmartCamera Lite is your web browser.

You can generate inspection programs and transfer the results to the controller or file servers. You can adjust the amount and format of the data as needed. This lets you reduce the amount of data sent over the process network. Integration into your existing system is also easy using its 6 programmable IOs. IT and OT communication are delivered via EtherNet TCP/UDP.
