Robust, flexible, tiny vision system

BOA Pro combines the robustness of our highly integrated BOA smart camera with the power and flexibility of our advanced Sherlock™ inspection software. The result is a compact industrial vision solution with diverse applicability across all manufacturing segments.

Easy to Set Up, Ready to Run

The BOA smart camera is offered with a range of sensor resolutions, performance grades and software to accommodate the needs of both application and user. The embedded software is setup via a local PC connection to BOA using Ethernet. Once configured for runtime, the Ethernet link can be disconnected or used to communicate with other devices on the factory floor, such as PLCs, Robots and HMIs. In addition to Ethernet, BOA cameras provide direct connections for RS-232 serial, discrete I/O and lamp control. BOA cameras are supported by various hardware and software accessories to simplify factory integration.

Sherlock: Power and Flexibility

Sherlock’s extensive library of instructions, preprocessors and advanced algorithms can be combined in a variety of ways to solve simple or very demanding tasks. Maximum design flexibility is provided to allow users to customize algorithms, construct scripts and develop operator interfaces.

Flexible Integration


Sherlock on the BOA Pro provides a variety of communication interfaces and supports standard factory protocols such as Modbus and Ethernet/IP. Image logging is supported via a connected client or by FTP to a network connected drive.


In addition to Ethernet, BOA Pro provides serial RS-232 and discrete I/O connections, as well as expandable I/O options. A dedicated strobe output is further provided for direct light control.


For visualization, Sherlock supports BOAView, a dedicated application supported by WinCE based HMIs. Sherlock also provides an OCX control and API that allows users to develop a custom interface that best suits their factory environment.


BOA Pro is compatible with industry standard M12 cord sets to minimize hardware integration costs.
