New MicroHAWK V- and F-Series smart Cameras simplify code reading and inspection with ultra-small footprints

The powerful yet compact MicroHAWK V/F400 and V/F300 Series Smart Cameras simplify applications by offering the possibility to combine code reading and vision inspection into a single, highly compact device. These smart cameras are suitable for the pharmaceutical, food and beverage industry as well as commodities where serialization with a combination of track and trace are of utmost importance.

Bundling multiple capabilities in one, the V/F400 and V/F300 Series lower hardware costs and minimize the work required for commissioning and maintenance. Powerful technologies such as liquid lens autofocus options and a high-resolution 5-megapixel color camera ensure exceptional precision while promoting greater flexibility in production line layouts.

The cutting-edge autofocus technology ensures that the camera can reliably inspect products that vary in size, shape, colour or desired inspection type. In addition, Omron’s advanced X-Mode algorithms allows reading of any code on damaged, shiny, curved or otherwise textured materials, minimizing downtime and keeping production moving smoothly. 

The compact size of the V/F400 and V/F300 Series makes it easy to embed them within space-constrained equipment or mount them on small robots. Their wide variety of supported communication interfaces include Ethernet/IP and PROFINET for added flexibility.
