Standard Cameras

R.J. Wilson, Inc. provides cameras from Basler and Pixelink. Both offer a variety of camera models using many of the major industry sensors, in a number of sensor sizes, in a range of resolutions, and with the major digital interface options.

Pixelink cameras are available with an on-board FPGA to offload some of the image processing from the PC to the camera, such as when applying filters or pre-processing the image. Pixelink’s software team is ready to customize their cameras as needed to meet your application requirements.

For OEMs needing to tightly specify a camera configuration, Pixelink can build almost anything from a board level camera module to a module with a lens mount and a special connector, to a full camera, AND they have the custom software engineering expertise to get the most from your camera configuration.

The Basler ace series is one of the most comprehensive lines of compact cameras in the industry. ace imaging solutions include:

  •  Area scan cameras in color and monochrome
  •  Compact, most are 29mm “cubes”
  •  A variety of sensor types, formats, and resolutions
  •  Gig-E, USB3, and Camera Link interfaces
  •  A new series of MED ace cameras for the medical and life sciences market, built in a dedicated facility to ISO 13485:2016 standards.
    •  Full control of the color space is provided to set the perfect color parameters for the highest color fidelity.

Specialty Cameras

For clients using microscopes, Basler & Pixelink offer models designed specifically to mount on a microscope and provide high quality monochrome or color images using a USB-3 interface. Both offer software that incorporates annotation and measurement tools, as well as managing and archiving the captured images in a lab environment.

APG Camera Enclosures

If your inspection system must operate in a wet or dangerous environment, the cameras likely need to be housed in a special enclosure for protection. APG has been building top-quality enclosures for decades. These enclosures are available for most any camera model and size, from the larger Smart Cameras to the smaller component cameras.

Enclosures are available with varying degrees of protection and include:

  • Basic protection from tampering
  • Splash-proof requirements to NEMA 12 for light-to-medium duty protection
  • Food and wash-down environments up to IP69
  • Protection from corrosive environments to IP67
  • High-heat applications, to 550° F, requiring a liquid-cooled enclosure
  • Explosion-proof enclosures

Accessories, such as pan/tilt mounts and cord grips, are available.

Metrix Vibration and Seismic Monitors and Transmitters

Vibration monitoring has become far easier with the introduction of Metrix industrial vibration monitoring systems. You’ll likely need to implement or maintain vibration and seismic sensing when working with:

  • Rotating Machinery
  • Reciprocating Compressors
  • Cooling Towers
  • Gas Turbines
  • Generators
  • Pumps
  • Motors
  • Fans

Any problem that results in a rotating or reciprocating piece of equipment going out-of-balance is going to escalate in cost quickly if the problem persists. Catastrophic failures have resulted.

Metrix pioneered the concept of simple, affordable machinery protection with its mechanical vibration switch offerings, revolutionary 4-20mA vibration transmitters, robust high-temperature velocity sensors, and innovative impact transmitter technology for reciprocating machinery. Metrix solutions focus on simplifying the user experience for installing, maintaining, and using the instrumentation with your existing SCADA or PLC system or a dedicated Metrix vibration monitor recording device with a 3.5-inch display, while delivering outstanding results and excellent value for the money.

TRI-TRONICS® Photoelectric Sensors

TRI-TRONICS designs and manufactures high-quality high-performance photoelectric sensors and fiber optic light guides for a broad array of demanding industrial automation applications. The performance of TRI-TRONICS sensors in real-world applications sets them apart from the competition. What could your application gain from an order of magnitude improvement in sensor performance? Compare a TRI-TRONICS sensor with output performance measurable in microseconds against competing products with output performance measurable in milliseconds.

Whether you are configuring a label sensor, a sleever, a bottler, an industrial process, high-speed line, a machine vision system, or pretty much anything that needs to signal some type of photoelectric state change to operate, TRI-TRONICS has the right photoelectric sensor to make your project a success.

R.J. Wilson, Inc. and the TRI-TRONICS Team will work with you to select the most appropriate photoelectric sensor, based on your application requirements, or to replace existing photoelectric sensors found on most OEM machines.
