Vision System Delivers Modularity and Integration



Cognex Corporation has introduced the new In-Sight 7000 series, a suite of modular standalone vision systems. The second generation In-Sight 7000 series features enhanced flexibility and ease of integration. This new vision system performs inspections that keep pace with increasing line speeds, while its compact form factor easily fits into space-constrained production lines. The In-Sight 7000's modular design offers over 400 different field configurations.

"This is the industry's first fully-customizable vision system," said Joerg Kuechen, Senior Vice President, Vision Products at Cognex. "The modular lighting and optics, including field-changeable autofocus, minimize the need for external lighting and allow users to configure the system to the unique requirements, which also helps minimize downtime when production line requirements change."

The rugged In-Sight 7000 is IP67-rated and includes Flexible Image Technology. This vision system features a patent-pending LED ring light that produces even, diffused illumination across the entire image, eliminating the need for costly external lighting. A variety of light colors, optical filters and polarizers can be swapped in to meet specific application requirements. Plus, the range of field-changeable C-mount and S-mount lenses and industrial, mechanical autofocus lens options enhance versatility.

Like all Cognex In-Sight vision systems, the In-Sight 7000 uses In-Sight Explorer to set up and monitor machine vision inspections. This software includes the EasyBuilder interface for step-by-step application set up and the In-Sight spreadsheet view for greater control. The system also includes a full set of powerful In-Sight vision tools, including PatMax RedLine pattern matching technology, OCRMax optical character recognition and SurfaceFX feature extraction technology.
