Gigabit Ethernet camera as vision component in pharma packaging checks

In cosmetic and pharmacy, you have to observe strict quality directives. This does not only concern the product itself, but also the packaging of a product, which contains many information like charge number, best before date (BBD), etc.. This information is important given that in the US with directive 21 CFR Part 11 as well as in Europe with the EU directive 2003/94/EC, the regulations have become more strict. I.e., printings have to be detected and recognized consistently and reliably. During high production output, these procedures have to be powerful, fast and failsafe.

The mvBlueCOUGAR-X camera checks as a compact optical system in inspection systems the packaging of pharmaceutical products. The integrated temperature sensor in combination with the compact size, the high image quality and sensivity make the camera suitable for the integration in inspection systems. Among other things, the inspection consists of label checkings, position checkings, fill levels, completeness, etc..
