Omron has introduced the advanced FZ3 color vision sensor that makes it possible to automate inspection of low-contrast color objects at high speed with reliable results by using true color technology and intelligent cameras.  Omron's Advanced Real Color Sensing (ARCS) engine captures and processes 16.77 million colors, approaching human color perception, and out-performs systems that use monochrome or false-color contrast conversion and analysis methods.  The FZ3 offers up to four-camera capability and true color conversion.  Camera choices include two- and five-mega-pixel models to obtain high resolution images with a greater field of view.   For more information or to order your Omron FZ3, call Innovative-IDM at 877-906-2100 today!
