Product Focus: 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.

Product Focus: In-Sight Micro
Make it small. Make it smart. Make it easy. Make it colorful! Cognex has achieved all of this and more with the next-generation In-Sight® Micro vision system. In-Sight Micro packs an entire vision system into an amazingly small package measuring just 30mm x 30mm x 60mm—the size of a remote head camera.
World’s smallest stand-alone 5MP vision system
The In-Sight Micro 8405 is an ultra-compact 5MP (megapixel) vision system that is a perfect option for integrating into small spaces. The small form factor features Power over Ethernet to minimize cabling and offers high speed communication with Gigabit Ethernet so the In-Sight 8405 truly goes where no vision system has gone before. This model offers a large field of view as well as high resolution and optimized vision tools to ensure no sacrifice in speed and performance.
Product Focus: In-Sight Laser Profiler
The In-Sight™ laser profiler is a measurement system used to verify that a part’s dimensions meet specifications. Then In-Sight laser profiler is configured using the In-Sight EasyBuilder user interface. This intuitive, easy-to-use software makes it simple for manufacturing and quality engineers to develop, deploy and support high accuracy measurements on the factory floor.
- Accurately acquire profiles
- Easily extract features and construct reference points
- Perform correct and repeatable measurements
The In-Sight laser profiler generates an accurate 2D profile of an object along a laser line. The 2D profile provides precise geometric information that can be sued to verify that an object is defect-free and meets specifications. The In-Sight laser profiler is easy to use and factory calibrated to ensure accurate and repeatable measurement results.
Product Focus: DataMan 150/260 Fixed Mount Barcode Readers
The next evolution in the DataMan Fixed Mount family. The DataMan 150/260 readers are fully configurable to meet the demand of ID applications today. The DataMan 150 can be configured as a RS-232 or USB device,
while the DataMan 260 is an Ethernet based reader. Each can be configured as a straight through or right
angle device, and have various lighting and lensing options, including band pass and polarization filters.
The DataMan 150/260 readers feature Cognex’s best-in-class algorithms, 2DMax with PowerGrid™ and
1DMax with HotBars II™. The DataMan 150/260 readers will be available in various models giving them the
ability to handle the broad range of codes found in the field today, from printed labels to hard to read DPM
The DataMan 150/260 readers are configurable to meet a wide variety of applications, including field
configurable lensing and lighting options, and configuration as a straight or right-angle device, reducing the
overall footprint of the reader. Included in the lensing options is a liquid lens configuration, allowing for easy
setup and on the fly focus adjustment. The DataMan 150/260 readers also have a user interface panel that
allows for push button tuning and triggering, and LED feedback on device status. All of this combines to
provide an ease of use not found in other products.
