Vision Sensors vs. Vision Systems

Vision Sensors are stand-alone devices which operate without the need for a connection to a computer. They have the reliability of a rugged photo sensor and the flexibility of a digital camera.

Vision Systems rely on a computer to run complex detection algorithms to sense the part under test. They can be costly to implement and require advanced programming knowledge and additional hardware on your production floor.

Balluff’s Sharpshooter Vision Sensor:

Uses a simple setup program which is free from Balluff. Once adjusted, the computer is disconnected and the sensor runs alone.


Sharpshooter combines vision capability and photoelectric sensor simplicity. This vision based sensor provides reliable error proofing and quality inspection anywhere. It can be used like a sensor, but provides far more functionality than any discrete sensor. It’s also far easier to use and more cost effective than more complex vision systems.

Key Vision Sensor Notes:

– Eliminate manual inspection, improve line speed
– Catch errors quicker, and reduce downtime and scrap
– Replace multi-sensor applications with one vision sensor
– Choose from three models, only pay for features needed
– Get 100% quality checking instead of audit checking
– Ensure reliable quality inspection with VGA resolution
– Pay sensor pricing for vision performance
