The Festo SBSI vision sensor series is said to be economical and provides quick and easy installation and commissioning, even for someone lacking expert knowledge in industrial vision systems. The vision sensor series can be commissioned in three steps: adjust the image with auto functions, select detectors and define the output.

Everything needed for optics, lighting, evaluation and communication is fully integrated in the device.

The SBSI-B variant from Festo can serve as a high performance code-reader for 1D or 2D codes, even hard-to-read data matrix codes.

As an object sensor, the SBSI-Q variant can carry out simple quality checks. Depending on the model, there are various focal lengths/image areas and lighting colours available.

External lighting can be directly connector to the unit using a model SBAL external light.

The sensor is said to be a reliable option for checking filling levels, confirming the presence of a cover, doing label or marking or completeness checks and more.
