Abstract:For the automation of production processes concepts are developed. For the concepts a vision camera with servosystem is needed and therefore the company wants to have the knowledge for implementing vision systems in their future projects. This will increase the diversity and flexibility of the machines that the company can offer. The assignment is to determine the x and y position of an object and send the coordinates to the PLC. The PLC uses the coordinates to control a servomotor which moves to the given position. First suppliers of vision systems were invited for finding a suitable supplier. After choosing the supplier and vision systems the communication with the PLC needs to be established. The PLC sends a signal to the camera. The camera makes and analyses the images and sends the coordinates of the object back to the PLC. The programming of the camera and PLC will be explained to set up the connection. The PLC sends the coordinates to the inverter which controls the servomotor and the programming for this will also be explained. CAN bus is used for the communication between the PLC and inverter. The control schemes of the inverter are investigated which consists mainly of PID controllers. The results is a system which is capable of finding the coordinates of an object and sending this to the servosystems which moves to the given position.
