Infrared Vision Sensor Prevents the Need for Shielding

Balluff recently released their BVS vision sensor with built-in infrared lighting and integrated daylight filter.

Inspection, bar code and text reading processes for vision sensors can be significantly impaired by changing ambient lighting conditions. Simultaneously, employees and technicians are often bothered by the pulsing red light of normal vision sensors. Balluff’s (Florence, KY) new BVS vision sensor with built-in infrared lighting and integrated daylight filter eliminates both of these problems.


By using infrared light and the BVS sensor’s integrated daylight filter, visible ambient light cannot affect image quality or stability of an inspection, greatly increasing inspection and process reliability.

The BVS sensor’s light is also invisible to the human eye, removing intrusive flickering to the operator, helping prevent the need for shielding or desire to tamper with it to minimize the lights effects.

Features of Balluff’s infrared vision sensor include a 10 percent higher light intensity than comparable red light sensors, integrated daylight filter for increased process reliability, invisible light which is safe for eyes and certified for CE (EN 62471:2008), and simple installation.
