The purpose of this installation is to confirm GM correct gears & dowel pin from bar code input, and communicated this information to failsafe and SQL for confirmation.
This installation consists of a Cognex Insight camera, a PC, and an Allen Bradley Micrologix PLC.
The camera is fixed-mounted above the assembly line above the passing axel. The PC is used to run the Cognex InSight software and to communicate with a failsafe system alongwith a SQL database. The PLC is used to handle the I/O signals coming from the camera and assembly line, initiate the camera inspection cycle, and to announce to the operators when a failure occurs.
