Vision System

Cognex In-Sight 2000 Series

In-Sight® 2000 series vision sensors combine the power of an In-Sight vision system with the simplicity and affordability of a vision sensor. Ideal for solving error-proofing applications, these vision sensors set new standards for value, ease of use and flexibility thanks to a powerful combination of proven In-Sight vision tools, a simple setup, and a modular design featuring field changable lighting and optics.

The In-Sight 2000 series includes an integrated, high-performance image formation system consisting of field interchangeable lenses and a patent-pending LED ring light that produces even, diffuse illumination across the entire image and eliminates the need for costly external lighting. Lenses and a variety of light colors can be easily swapped out as needed to meet application requirements.

Together with the In-Sight Explorer EasyBuilder® interface, which provides a fast, step-by-step application setup, the In-Sight 2000 series allows even novice users to achieve extremely reliable inspection performance in nearly any production environment.

In-Sight 2000 series vision sensors can also be configured for in-line and right-angle mounting installation. This modular body design provides maximum flexibility to mount in tight spaces, simplifies wiring and optical paths, and minimizes the need to design new mechanical fixtures.

Cognex In-Sight 7000 Series

The In-Sight® 7000 series of vision systems features powerful vision tools, autofocus, faster image capture, integrated lighting and lens and the capability to power and control a range of external lighting—all in a compact, industrial IP67 package that makes the system ideal for more applications than ever before.

Users can simply set and save the optimal focus values associated with the inspection of specific parts, making In-Sight 7000 the ideal choice for production situations requiring regular part changes or projects that require the vision system to be placed in hard-to-reach spaces.

Integrated Lighting and Lens
In-Sight 7000 offers integrated, field-replaceable lighting with five different color options, giving users total flexibility to support any vision application. In addition, integrated field-replaceable lenses allow users to further customize the vision system for specific applications.

Smarter Tools
In-Sight 7000 users can rely on proven In-Sight measurement, location and inspection vision tools and the flexible EasyBuilder® environment to make all inspection, defect detection, guidance, alignment and measurement applications easy to set up and deploy. New tools include OCRMax™ for optical character reading and verification applications. OCRMax gives In-Sight the power to achieve the highest read rates. OCRMax is fast, easy to set up and simple to use across all platforms.

Faster Image Capture
The In-Sight 7000 delivers the highest acquisition speeds available with In-Sight with a maximum of over 100 image captures per second. The high acquisition rate provides users reliable inspection of products on even the fastest bottling and pharmaceutical production lines.

Lighting Power and Control
Unlike most vision systems, the In-Sight 7000 has the capability to power and control specialized lighting directly which eliminates the need for external power supplies.

Even More Options
Cognex Connect™ offers the widest range of built-in communication protocols that interface directly with the vision system. The compact In-Sight 7000 features built-in Ethernet, RS-232 serial and multiple discrete I/Os. The system can communicate directly to virtually any PLC or robot controller and manage multiple smart cameras remotely from a networked PC or HMI, simplifying implementation and reducing costs.
