Paper Abstract

The OPTOMATION TM Instrument System provides on-line capability for 100% non-contact inspection of parts or assemblies on high speed production lines. System operation is based on measurements which are made by extracting key visual features or discriminants from the image derived from a solid state Charge Injection Device (CID) camera, comparing those measurements with a set of predetermined values which establish acceptance or rejection criteria, and generating output decision signals to drive the system under control. In this paper, performance characteristics of the PN2303 OPTOMATION TM Instrument System are outlined. In addition, several specific system applications are described.
