Cognex Introduces Next Generation Vision System

In-Sight® Micro: the world’s smallest, smartest, and easiest vision system

Make it small. Make it smart. Make it easy. That’s what Cognex has achieved with the next-generation In-Sight Micro vision system. In-Sight Micro packs a complete vision system into a remarkably small package that measures just 30mm x 30mm x 60mm. Together with the new, intuitive EasyBuilderTM configuration software, and smart VisionViewTM operator interface display, In-Sight Micro will forever change the way people think about and use vision.

“What’s truly revolutionary about the In-Sight Micro vision system is that it transforms machine vision into a much more affordable and accessible solution for so many people,” said Justin Testa, Cognex Senior Vice President. “Now even users unfamiliar with machine vision systems will find it easy to set up and deploy machine vision applications.”

The In-Sight Micro is a full vision system the size of a remote-head camera, ideal for mounting in very tight spaces on robots, production lines and machinery. In addition to small size, the In-Sight Micro provides flexible mounting capability with a unique non-linear calibration tool that enables mounting at angles of up to 45-degrees for hard-to-reach applications.

Five new In-Sight Micro models cover a range of price, performance, and resolution levels, including a two-megapixel model. In-Sight Micro includes the proven Cognex vision tool library to handle the broadest range of vision applications for the widest array of industries.

The new EasyBuilder configuration software makes In-Sight Micro remarkably easy to set up and deploy. With a simple point and click approach, EasyBuilder walks users through the process of setting up a vision application, step by step. EasyBuilder eliminates the need for programming, yet provides the flexibility to customize complex applications when needed.

The unique VisionView 700 operator interface panel makes it easier than ever to monitor production processes without a PC. Once connected, VisionView automatically detects any Cognex vision system on the network and simultaneously displays information from up to nine vision systems in a tiled view.  

The In-Sight Micro vision systems, EasyBuilder software, and VisionView display will be available at the end of March.
