EVP2 | Easy Vision Picking2

EVP2 is an image processing application specially developed for use with a “pick & place” robot.

This software offers enhanced functionality and several times greater processing power than the previous EVP application, while maintaining the same ease of operation.

 

EVP2 consists of EVP2 Guidance and EVP2 Runtime.

Image processing operations can be set using the application (EVP2 Guidance) that runs on a PC.
When EVP2 Runtime is running, only the robot controller and connected camera are required for operation.

EVP Calibration Wizard

・Simply loading the chess board completes the camera calibration.
・A user simply follows the wizard to complete calibration of the robot and camera.

EVP2 Guidance

・Simple, programming-less setting of image processing flow

・Versatile search function
 Shape search
 Contrast search
 Blob search
 Color search
 Auxiliary search

・Convenient functions
 Model masking
 Search area editing
 Detection method selection

EVP2 Runtime

・Low price realized by the system that uses the built-in robot vision application in the robot controller for image processing

・Simple configuration
 No PC required
 No visual controller required
 No communication program required for sending image processing results to the robot
 A wide range of compatible cameras

・Significantly improved image processing library and faster image recognition speed (as compared to EVP)

 Contrast search
 Shape recognition
 Blob recognition

Enhanced Basic Functions Improved robot vision functions

Part presence detection function

This function determines whether the detected workpiece is located within the specified area.
The area can be specified based on the check direction, the number of longitudinal divisions and the number of lateral divisions.

Interference check function

This function prevents the end effector from colliding against adjacent workpieces when grasping the detected workpiece.

Part distribution detection function

During the EVP2 component distribution step, the position of the feeder can be controlled by dividing the area and accurately identifying the location of each part.

Palletizing sort function

This function sorts the detected parts according to the specified rule.
The workpiece sort sequence can be decided based on the sorting direction and the number of divisions.

EVP | Easy Vision Picking

EVP (Easy Vision Picking) is an image processing application that specializes in Pick & Place without using a program.

Image processing settings are configured using an application (EVP Guidance) on the PC. When executing (EVP Runtime) can be run by RC8 and the camera connected to RC8 only.EVP also includes a calibration wizard that can perform robot calibration and calibration between camera and robot.The picking device has built-in functionality to output the location of parts that are within the field of vision of the robot, allowing control of parts movement via a feeder or other device.

 

EVP Calibration Wizard

・Simply loading the chess board completes the camera calibration.
・A user simply follows the wizard to complete calibration of the robot and camera.

EVP Guidance

・An image processing flowchart can be configured by easy operation without using a program.
・Multiple models can be registered and recognized even in a mixed product environment

EVP Runtime

・Results can be shown on the teach pendant during execution, making a PC unnecessary.
・mage processing and communications programs are not needed to output image processing results to the robot position type (P type) variable.

System requirements

【OS】 Windows® Vista / 7 / 8 / 10  PC: CPU 2 GHz or faster multi-core processor, Memory 2 GB or more, HDD 1 GB or more
【Camera】 Basler GigE camera (ace series), iDS USB camera (uEye SE series), Canon network camera (WebView Livescope series)

EIS | Easy Image Store

EIS is a software to store the images of cameras connected to RC8.

Images taken by the built-in image processing application (EVP) in RC8 are temporarily stored in RC8, and reset when power is turned off. With EIS, the images can be stored automatically in PC as image files.


 
  • Easy connection between the robot controller and the PC

    Using the wizard, users can easily connect the robot controller to a PC and set places where images are stored.

  • Trigger setting

    By setting internal I/O numbers of the robot controller and monitoring intervals as triggers, images can be stored with arbitrary timing.
