Smart camera Zebra VS40
The VS40 is loaded with class-leading features, including:
Easily integrate machine vision into your network
From the factory floor to the control room, manufacturers are under intense pressure to meet increasing business demands. Every day, production lines strive to achieve consistent product quality and throughput quotas. Success requires a reliable and dependable process at every stage of production—a process that increases automation, reduces defects and validates assembly and tracking information.
Now, manufacturers can address it all with the Zebra VS40 Machine Vision Smart Camera. The VS40 provides a new level of intelligence and automation that enables production lines to ensure product quality and meet production goals. Operations are leaner—only error-free components are utilized in the right product at the right time. The result? Product defects are practically eliminated. Manufacturing costs are lower. And customer satisfaction is higher.
The VS40 brings a new level of simplicity to your machine vision solutions. It all starts with Zebra Aurora—a powerful and intuitive software platform that makes it exceptionally easy to set up, deploy and run Zebra’s entire portfolio of Machine Vision Smart Cameras and Fixed Industrial Scanners. Built-in options for illumination, connectivity, power and more make the VS40 one of the most flexible devices in its category.Zebra-exclusive features such as ImagePerfect reduce steps, training and management time and cost, as well as the need for external peripherals. And since you can add advanced tools at any time with a simple software license upgrade, the device you buy today can support new needs tomorrow.
Easy to Set Up
Automatic Setup With Auto-Tune. Just Auto-Tune and run for consistent, reliable inspections—right out of the box. With the press of one button, Auto-Tune dials in the perfect image for faster and more accurate set up.
IoT Ready With Zebra Savanna™. The IoT-ready VS40 can send images to Zebra’s subscription-based cloud service, Zebra Savanna — or any other cloud service—allowing you to meet industry regulations or store images for further analysis, all without the need to purchase and manage servers.
Power it All Over Ethernet. Reduce setup complexity and cost with support for Power-over-Ethernet (PoE). This standard feature powers the VS40 and attached accessories right over the network, eliminating the cost of power drops and power supplies. Don’t have a PoE infrastructure? No problem. You can also power the VS40 with a standard 24V DC power supply or even a standard USB-C port.
Limitless Expansion Options With USB-C. Ready for a new level of flexibility? USB-C allows you to power your camera with a single cable and provides limitless accessory options. Seamlessly integrate with other Zebra devices such as a printer or tablet. You can also backup your system or save images for future analysis by connecting external storage devices to the VS40.
Create Tools Faster With QuickDraw. Simply draw right on an image to create a tool in fewer steps than most competitive systems require.
Locate the Right Part Successfully—Every Time. Zebra takes a new approach to the creation of two key error-proofing tools—Object Locate and Pattern Matching. Zebra’s optimized algorithms and carefully crafted default settings enable users to dependably create successful tools with fewer clicks, less trial and error, and less deployment time and effort.
Easy to Deploy
Programmable Input/Output (I/O) Ports. Get the ultimate in I/O flexibility. Four digital I/O ports can be individually controlled to expand application functionality and improve error-proofing. Support additional peripherals, activate lights, or trigger an action to more fully automate your processes.
Powerful Integrated Lighting. Reliable inspection starts with the highest quality image—something which frequently requires the purchase and management of expensive, external lighting. With the VS40, you can do more with less with the powerful integrated ring lighting system. The flexible and field-interchangeable lighting is available in red, white, blue, infrared or a single model that includes them all. And you can add any filter or polarizer to control ambient light and reduce glare. These comprehensive lighting options enable you to achieve the high-quality flawless images required to ensure reliable performance.
Ultra-Rugged and Ready for Industrial Spaces. Rely on dependable operation in the most demanding environments with an ultra-rugged design. The aluminum housing is chemical and oil resistant. IP65 and IP67 sealing ratings make the device dust tight and able to withstand high-power wash downs—or even total immersion in water.
Operato Feedback/Status Indicators. With 360° LED lights, your operators can instantly see image and camera status. Workers can see at a glance if image capture was successful or unsuccessful—protecting product quality and traceability. Five built-in camera status LEDs— Power, Online/Run, Focus Warning, Error and Ethernet Status—make it easy to verify whether cameras are fully operational or in need of attention. In addition, a beeper with adjustable volume provides an audible cue of successful capture, so workers can keep their eyes on the job—instead of the device.
Added Flexibility With the Zebra Aurora HMI dashboard. Give workers actionable intelligence right where they need it—at their station. Operators can see and interact with the Zebra Aurora Human Machine Interface (HMI) dashboard via any web browser or by directly connecting a monitor to the VS40. The need to install a PC at every workstation is eliminated, reducing hardware requirements and installation costs.
Simple, Easy And Fast Integration With Your Network Infrastructure. Built-in Ethernet/IP, PROFINET and other network protocols enable painless integration with any common PLC or host system. Network architecture is simplified and deployment time and cost are reduced.
Easy to Run
Eliminate Bypassed Inspections and False Rejects With ImagePerfect. Uneven lighting and the need to read images at various distances can require additional cameras, external lights or complex custom code—additions that can substantially increase the total cost of ownership. Address it all with a groundbreaking new feature—ImagePerfect. This Zebra-exclusive feature captures up to three different images of a single item, each with its own unique setting for focus, exposure, gain, illumination control and more. The result? High quality images that enable high read rates. A significant reduction in solution complexity. And a lower total cost of ownership.
Get the Features You Need Today — and Add the Features You Need Tomorrow. The modular architecture lets you select the Machine Vision (MV) toolset you need now, and add new functionality any time in the future. Just purchase licenses to upgrade to more advanced MV tools, allowing you to meet tomorrow’s needs with the products you have today.
First-Time Every-Time Barcode Capture. Need to capture barcodes? Superior optics and Zebra’s exclusive PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology work together to deliver the reliable data capture you need to keep your operations running at peak capacity. The optical system enables the simultaneous capture of multiple barcodes, extends read ranges and focal distances and allows a larger field of view to capture more information with less equipment. And PRZM Intelligent Imaging delivers first-time capture of virtually any 1D, 2D and DPM barcode on any surface, in practically any condition.
Rapid Troubleshooting With Golden Image Compare. If any image capture or barcode reads fail, this Zebra- only tool allows you to quickly identify and resolve the issue by comparing any image to a golden ‘perfect’ image created at setup. Minimize downtime by immediately diagnosing and rapidly correcting the source of any degradation—from a dirty lens or a lighting problem to misalignment of the camera.
