Boa Monochrome and Colour Smart Camera

Three performance options. Three software options

Go to Standard BOA
For simplified deployment embedded with iNspect Express Software
Go to BOA IDR
For identification and validation applications embedded with a relevant sub-set of iNspect Express software
Go to BOA PRO
For higher-performance applications embedded with Sherlock software

BOA vision systems are available in a range of resolutions for monochrome and colour applications with three performance options: 1X (BOA), 1.5X (BOA50), 4X (BOA200) and is a highly-integrated optical inspection tool for controlling quality and increasing productivity.

Easy-to-use and inexpensive, the cameras offer the choice of three different embedded software applications: iNspect Express (INS), a subset of iNspect Express focused on identifcation (IDR), or the advanced Sherlock (PRO).

The BOA is a complete vision system contained within a small and rugged housing designed to IP67 standard and suited for factory environments, including wash down situations.

Depending on the application, the BOA family provides a core set of tools and capabilities that can be applied to a vast number of vision tasks, including identification, measurement, verification and flaw detection. An additional benefit is that a web browser can be used to set up the camera.

Offering a balance between ease-of-use and flexibility, both new and experienced users can quickly set up, easily integrate and deploy solutions on the factory floor. Additionally, easy mounting capabilities allows the BOA to integrate smoothly into existing machinery, and at a lower cost. Its rugged housing, designed to IP67 standard, allows it to be deployed without needing additional enclosures, in environments requiring wash down. No programming knowledge is assumed.

BOA IDR

for identification and validation applications embedded with a relevant-to-task sub-set of iNspect Express software

BOA IDR is an image-based identification and verification camera that allows manufacturers to identify, automatically, parts for traceability and error proofing. A highly-integrated solution, the BOA IDR offers product identification and tracking for high speed applications in automotive, consumer products, electronics, packaging and pharmaceutical industries.

The IDR version is offered with a subset of iNspect Express tools that applies only to identification, tracking and associated verification applications and is a good choice for manufacturers who need to inspect product markings for correctness or traceability. BOA IDR combines 1D and 2D reader tools with character (OCR) and pattern recognition capabilities to identify or verify all required product markings and the IDR software is embedded within the device and is setup through a web browser interface.

The controls are easy to navigate and accommodate users of all experience levels. Advanced features, such as custom scripting, are provided for more complex applications. User administration controls and logging features are also included to help customers achieve system validation when required. Included with BOA IDR is a fully functional software emulator that allows users to develop or debug applications offline. Runtime Images can be saved to the offline PC using the Ethernet interface. The emulator maximizes machine up time during application development and maintenance.
BOA application setup does not assume programming or machine vision knowledge.

BOA IDR supports standard communication protocols, such as Modbus and Ethernet/IP, for seamless connection to complementary control devices.

BOA PRO

4 x performance of standard BOA: for higher-performance applications; embedded with Sherlock software

BOA PRO combines the robustness of the highly-integrated BOA smart camera with the flexibility of Sherlock™ inspection software, resulting in a compact industrial vision solution with diverse applicability across all manufacturing segments.

Easy to set up, control and integrate
Offered with a range of sensor resolutions, performance grades and software to accommodate the needs of both application and user, the embedded software is set up via a local PC connection to BOA using Ethernet. Once configured for runtime, the Ethernet link can be disconnected or used to communicate with other devices on the factory floor, such as PLCs, Robots and HMI's. In addition to Ethernet, BOA cameras provide direct connections for RS-232 serial, discrete I/O and lamp control. BOA cameras are supported by various hardware and software accessories to simplify factory integration.

The benefits of embedded Sherlock software
Sherlock Embedded has been specifically designed for the BOA PRO vision system.

The software includes a client design interface, installed on a PC, that communicates with the server or engine embedded on the camera. During development, images from the camera are fed directly to the Sherlock GUI and commands from the program are executed directly on the camera. This methodology optimizes the user design experience whilst providing an accurate representation of runtime performance. A secondary interface is available through a standard web browser for device setup, runtime monitoring and firmware updating.

Suited to users with challenging or changing vision requirements, Sherlock offers the design flexibility and inspection capabilities to satisfy a diverse range of applications across all industries by allowing users to standardize on a single deployment platform. User features include:
• Flexible programming interface • Extensive list of drag-drop instructions • Dedicated Javascript editor
• Single step debugging • Unauthorized access protection • Full-featured emulator for offline editing
 

Vision capabilities    
• Large selection of algorithms and preprocessors
• ROI shape selection: Rectangle, Annulus, Polygon, Line, Point, Polyline, Arc, Rake, Polyrake, Spoke
• Basic Tools: Edge, Count, Caliper, Contrast, Intensity, Statistics. Reader Tools: 1D, 2D, OCR. Complex Tools: Bead, Calibration, Crawler, Laser, Pattern Match
