Description:

Semitronik is proud to announce the launch of India’s first fully indigenous camera based inspection system. The system is designed to suite the needs of the latest trends in pharmaceutical industry including compliance with CFR21 Part 11 compliance.

Semitronik has a system where a high speed industrial camera will be installed on the inspection/production line and the accept/reject decision will be given to the PLC for each item being inspected. The following image illustrates the system architecture –
The camera can be installed on a production line. A photo-sensor gives trigger to the camera and captures the image of the object which can be a bottle, sticker, ampoule or any other object to be inspected. The camera gives the image to the HMI/PC, which gives accept/reject result to the PLC.


System Architechture

The system is designed to meet the following applications -

  • Optical Character Recognition (OCR) – expiry date, serial number etc.
  • Barcode Recognition.
  • Pharmacode Recognition.
  • DataMatrix Code Recognition.
  • Presence/Absence Detection.
  • Fluid fill level inspection.
  • Detection of foreign particles in vials/ampoules.
  • Completeness of coatings on pills, blister pack contents.
  • Completeness of syringes and pack contents.
  • Verification of patterns like logo, characters, shapes etc.

 
Key Features:
 
  • The software has an additional module supplied for CFR21 Part 11 compliance.
  • Touch-screen enabled user-friendly interface..
  • Support for multiple camera in the same software.
  • Stores image of each rejected sample for reporting.
  • Recipe can be created for each object to be inspected.
  • Multiple objects can be inspected with same software at the same time by running different recipes.
  • HMI/SCADA application can be developed on the same PC.
  • Removes need of any additional HMI to be used with PLC.
  • Completely indigenous development.
  • Any modifications to the software are possible as per the customer’s requirement.

System Details:
 

The price of the system varies from the case to case depending on the camera, lens, light and software selection. However, our basic package which will be mostly used for common applications has the following configuration –

Camera:-
  • USB CMOS Monochrome Camera .
  • 1/2 " sensor, progressive scan.
  • 1280x1024 pixel.
  • Up to 27 images/s.
  • Trigger input and I/O.
Lens Description :- 2/3" C mount lens with 16mm focal length.

Lights :- High flux machine vision ring light source.

Software Description:-
  • Captures and displays image data on the screen in real-time.
  • Software capable to perform barcode recognition, pharmacode recognition, DataMatrix Code recognition, OCR (small fonts support), OCV, logo inspection.
  • Recipe management feature using which the user can teach the correct values for different jobs.
  • Output rejection logic can be provided to the PLC using MODBUS or digital output cards.
  • Logs data like production parameters, rejection ratio and generates graphs and reports for the same.
SCADA/HMI Development:
 

For OEM customers we also offer SCADA/HMI development for their machines using embedded operating system. This will replace your existing HMI used with PLC and the computer can be used for camera inspection as well as HMI.
