Crestchic loadbanks back up Korean shipbuilding sector

An international leader in load testing solutions, Crestchic has recently completed another major order for the world-leading South Korean shipbuilding sector with the delivery of six containerised 6000kVA resistive-reactive 450V 60Hz loadbanks to one of Korea’s premier shipbuilders. This takes the UK manufacturer, operating globally from its headquarters at Burton-on-Trent in the UK, past the 100 container mark for the Korean shipbuilding industry – currently the world’s largest - alone.

The IV Series stands out as the easiest

to-start vision sensor on the market. The set-up is done via a 4 step graphic interface procedure. Typically, it takes less than a minute. Exposure time and illumination are adjusted automatically (IBA feature - Intelligent Brightness Adjust). Focusing, with the automatic focus mechanism, can now be done automatically. It is done by a unique automatic focus motor developed exclusively for the IV Series. In addition, the IV Series is the very first vision sensor in its price range offering colour detection and the autofocus function at the same time. A flexible solution allowing many different applications: part or label presence/absence, detection of part orientation, misalignment, cable recognition according to their colour, proper assembly… Therefore one IV sensor is able to perform multiple detections on a single target, where competitors would often require multiple sensors. The technology of shape recognition makes it possible to perform reliable detections on moving targets. Compensation of the position is automatically done. The IV Series is thus more stable than laser or optical sensor, while remaining in the price range. The Series IV vision system offers a resolution of 752x480 pixels and IP67 protection, making it perfectly suitable to industrial requirements. It is connected via Ethernet or an M12 connector. Eight sensor heads are available to match the various specifications of the application: detection range (up to 2000 mm), distance view and finally exposure time (down to 1/25000 for fast cadence). This vision sensor offers excellent detection stability thanks to a set of new features: 4 lenses HP-Quad focus with low aberration with high light gathering power. HS-HDR feature widens the light-receiving sensitivity range when dispersion occurs in the reflection. As production runs brightness is automatically adjusted and glare from glossy surfaces is reduced by a polarising filter. The main applications are in packaging, metal working, automotive, electronics or food and pharmaceutical industries.
