Key installation points

Conventionally, multi-point detections were performed by installing multiple sensors. However, these detections can be performed stably and easily with a single IV Series unit.
The edges (contours) can be captured accurately even in the case of glossy targets such as those made of metal. This enables stable detections.
Multiple product types can also be supported easily because it is possible to switch between product types with the setting monitor and with external signals.
