Vision Systems

Cognex In-Sight® vision systems are unmatched in their ability to inspect, identify and guide parts. These self-contained, industrial grade vision systems combine a library of advanced vision tools with high-speed image acquisition and processing. Best of all, configuring and deploying an In-Sight vision system has never been easier.


 

In-Sight VC200 Multi Smart Camera Vision System

The In-Sight® VC200 multi smart camera vision system brings the proven reliability of standalone In-Sight vision systems to multi camera vision applications. You can easily attach up to four In-Sight smart cameras to a controller for multi-view inspections in your manufacturing environment. For the first time, you can leverage the power of distributed computing with multiple smart cameras for high-performance applications.

While traditional multi-camera systems slow down with each additional camera, the processing power of the In-Sight VC200 vision system actually increases with each smart camera added. This incremental power is possible because each smart camera contains its own processor—this allows you to run In-Sight vision tools, such as PatMax Redline, independently on each camera with no reduction in speed of the overall application regardless of how many cameras are attached.

In-Sight 5705 & 5705C 5 Mega Pixel Vision Systems

The In-Sight 5705 series offers high performance with high resolution making it the fastest 5MP self contained vision system in the world. The In-Sight 5705 color follows making it the only standalone 5 MP color vision system in the world! Both systems support Gigabit Ethernet and the new blazing fast PatMax® Redline™ tool.

Faster image filters on an In-Sight 5705
Full image speed is significantly higher with the In-Sight 5705 Series- seven times faster running the closed filter and the edge magnitude filter than a two megapixel system. In practical terms, it’s over half a second faster. This dramatic speed increase reduces cycle times or allows more time for running more detailed inspections.

In-Sight 5705C: True 24-bit color processing
True Color Filtering and easy-to-use Color ID and Color Extraction tools make color inspections easier than ever. Setting up and performing color inspections using these tools requires simple selection of a color region and then color training.

There is no need to understand R-G-B values or other complicated machine vision concepts. The In-Sight 5705C offers color image filtering in addition to grayscale filtering and allows you to train multiple color models using the color library to identify which color the target part is.

The EasyBuilder® interface - walks you through the process of setting up your vision application, step by step.

Working from an image of the part, four simple steps complete the application setup:

1. START - Connect your In-Sight vision system on your network and set up the image to inspect.

2. SET UP TOOLS - Locate and inspect the part using a library of over 40 industry proven vision tools.

3. CONFIGURE RESULTS - Point-and-click setup for inputs, outputs, and communication to PLCs, robots and HMIs.

4. FINISH - Choose the images to record while inspecting, and put your In-Sight vision system online.

That’s all it takes to complete an application! In a fraction of the time that you would normally spend learning how to set up a vision system, you can have your entire solution configured and deployed.
