In semi-automatic or automatic welding systems the operation and control of the welding head often occurs at a remote control station. Optimal positioning and adjustment of the welding process therefore requires a visual inspection.
The WVS-16-1F Colour Welding Camera System is switchable between Standard (PAL) or High Definition (AHD) output. It features a motorised zoom lens and LCD scene filter adjusted by a potentiometer mounted on the Camera Control Unit (CCU). When welding starts the filter is automatically triggered, enabling operators to view a sharp image of the entire scene before, during and after a welding process. The CCU controls camera zoom, focus and aperture plus three programmable preset positions for improved set up times and better detection of any welding defects.
The WVS-16-1F also features a ring light providing illumination during camera set up plus a cooling water system. The CCU can be installed up to 50 metres away connected via a flexible cable designed for energy chain compatibility. A version with a scene and an arc filter is available (WVS-16-2F)
