Reconfigurable 3D sensing combined with an EtherNet/IP interface provide easy integration with the control system.
Built-in applications do all the processing in the device, so no additional compute hardware is necessary. Results are provided to the controllers via EtherNet/IP
Integrated infrared illumination eliminates the need of any additional lighting source simplifying the deployment of systems in most industrial environments
Swift-E is factory calibrated for high precision. Its high resolution combined with the technology capability for fast image capture deliver very fast results, making it ideal for industrial applications
The device includes applications for fully reconfigurable measurement of height and the sensing of presence of product in high speed industrial automation implementations delivering results where other technologies fall short.
Connectivity using EtherNet/IP integrates information into the industrial control system, providing actionable results where they are needed.

Validating that all the product has been transferred from staging to the pallet is a common challenge this kind of systems present. With Swift-E each pallet level can be validated for completeness, ensuring the integrity of the pallet stacking.
Many of the modern case packing systems use robots or pneumatic transfer systems to fill up product boxes. Systems struggle to validate that the box has been filled. Swift-E can provide height or completeness inspection to ensure all boxes are filled as expected.
In many industrial systems it is necessary to validate the completeness or presence/absence of product. Swift-E provides a no-touch, wide range mechanism to validate the completeness or the height for multiple industrial situations.
