Frame Number ID – Cars

This installation consists of two Cognex Insight cameras, a PC, and an Allen Bradley Micrologix PLC.

Also included is a switch installed on the assembly line floor for indicating when a car body is in front of the cameras.

The two cameras are fixed-mounted above the assembly line on the left side of the passing car-bodies. Each of the cameras are set up for reading different body number off of two bodies type.

The PC is used to run the Cognex InSight software and to communicate with the companies global system. The PLC is used to handle the I/O signals coming from the assembly line, initiate the camera inspection cycle, and to announce to the operators when an alarm occurs.
