Paper Abstract

An effective approach to the design of a line scan camera controller is covered in this paper. Primary features of the controller, other than the microprocessor operation, which are covered, include camera data compression and presentation to the microprocessor, mathematical capability for efficient mensuration, real-time capability for machine and process interface, and steps to make the hardware more versatile in order to complement the flexibility of software. A detailed example is given in the application of the controller to the production sizing and grading of spherical bearing rollers under the dual constraints of high thruput (2400 rollers/hour) and high accuracy (50 microinches).
