It explores employing Chromasens 3DPIXA stereo linescan camera in combination with the company’s 3DAPI image data processing software to acquire connector pin images at extremely high speeds.
In the automotive industry the quality of every electrical connector is of utmost importance to ensuring a vehicle’s safety and reliability.
However, world-class standards of quality must be balanced with the realities of high-volume, cost-effective production, resulting in the need for fully automated testing of connectors.
In this system, an applied image-processing algorithm detects the number of plugs in the 3D image and creates corresponding regions of interest (ROI). Next, the software determines if the pin tips fit the predefined grid with cylindrical areas and to detect if individual pins are not in this area.
