The performance of a vision system at the price of a vision sensor

The perfect introduction to machine vision: easy to operate and maintain, cost-effective and reliable for a wide range of quality inspection tasks. No matter what products you manufacture, BOA Spot can help you improve quality, reduce waste, and increase throughput. It's never been easier to add machine vision to your automation.

With its integrated LED illumination, lens and pre-installed user-friendly software, the BOA Spot vision sensor can be easily integrated into production lines and factory systems. The robust design and IP67 protection enable use in harsh industrial environments.

BOA Spot Vision Sensor

Powerful vision sensor for automated inspection tasks

The vision tools embedded in BOA Spot SL, accessible via a simple graphical user interface, can be used individually for a wide range of tasks such as pattern recognition, feature inspection, counting and sorting tasks, measuring or defect detection to solve simple inspection tasks. They can also be combined for more complex jobs.

The BOA Spot XLE version additionally offer tools for reading 1D/2D codes and plain text (OCR).
