Multi Smart Camera Vision System



Cognex Corporation has introduced the In-Sight VC200 series, a family of multi smart camera vision systems. The In-Sight VC200 series brings the performance of In-Sight vision systems to multi-camera vision applications.

"Traditional multi-camera systems use 'dumb' cameras that share the same processer, resulting in slower performance as more cameras are added," said a Cognex spokesperson. "This technology limits today's multi-camera systems to applications with simultaneous acquisitions. The In-Sight VC200 overcomes these restrictions because the processing power actually increases with each additional camera, expanding the number of multi-camera inspection applications. This improved performance helps keep pace with fast-moving production lines and also provides the flexibility to solve applications with sequential or asynchronous inspections."

The In-Sight VC200 includes a fully customizable, web-enabled HMI, providing monitoring and control through password-protected access levels. With the In-Sight VC200, operators can now view inspections, controls engineers can modify parameters and plant managers can review performance statistics simultaneously from any iOS-, Android- or Windows-based device with a web browser.

"As our customers expand the use of machine vision, they are looking for ways to make standalone cameras work together to solve applications requiring multi-view inspections," said Joerg Kuechen, Cognex Vice President and Business Unit Manager, Vision Products.

"Like all In-Sight vision systems, In-Sight VC200 multi-camera applications are easy to set up with the powerful In-Sight Explorer software." The graphical workflow simplifies vision applications by separating the inspection steps into manageable tool blocks. It also provides access to In-Sight vision tools (including PatMax Redline, OCRMax and others) through the familiar spreadsheet interface.
