FLOAT GLASS WIDTH MEASUREMENTS SYSTEM
Two high resolution GigE (gigabit ethernet vision) cameras enclosed in an IP67 temperature resistant full metal/jacketed housing cooled by either water or air. A unique orifice plate prevents debris from adhering to the lens, resulting in a clear view of the glass edge and ribbon at all times. Cameras come with a fully adjustable mounting system to allow for optimal camera positioning. Camera can be powered via PoE (power over ethernet) through a direct connection back to a Vector Control Module (embedded image processing system) with variable outputs for system control (analog, Modbus, OPC etc.)
- Non-contact continuous gross/net width control measurement
- Accurately detect both the leading edge of the glass and the knurl
- Resolution of up to .01 inches
- POE or 120/230V options

Hardware – VectorCANTY Vector Control Modules (VCM’s) act as the brain of a camera system. Each VCM purchased comes loaded with CANTYVISION™ software used for both viewing and analysis on an embedded platform that is dedicated to that software. VCM’s can be ordered equipped to output data from the analysis performed via analog (4-20mA), Modbus TCP/IP, or OPC. Depending on model and application, VCM’s can support up to 6 CANTY cameras, allowing for analysis from multiple cameras to be performed in real time on one VCM. VCM’s have watchdog settings to protect and troubleshoot against any unforeseen issues and come with a built-in remote support tool to connect with CANTY Tech Support (network connection required for remote support). In the event of a power failure, VCM’s can be set up to automatically reboot as soon as power is resupplied and restart analysis without the need of a person to come back and start things up again. All VCM’s are shipped to require little to no work out-of-the-box to begin analysis on your process.
