The Sentry is a digital photo stand with a 16-mega-pixel camera using telecentric lenses and capturing images of parts up to a size of 4 inches. Parts are measured and defects found using software-based pattern recognition and image processing per the customer’s specific requirements. In a manufacturing floor or quality control laboratory, the unit is designed to take critical measurements or perform defect detection on medical devices, electronic components or other small parts. It is ideal for the inspection of multi-lumen tubing, IC packaging, or surgical staples and clips. The Sentry’s array format is 3,500 by 2,300 pixels, with a 35-millimeter by 23-millimeter actual sensor size. It has lenses that span a magnification range of 0.3X up to 10X, allowing the machine to handle a range of part sizes from 3.5 by 2.3 millimeters with a 0.3-micron precision up to 117 by 77 millimeter with an 8.3-micron precision.
