Entry-level vision system
September 21, 2012 by Alison Dunn
Cognex Corporation recently introduced the In-Sight 7010, an entry-level vision system developed specifically for inspection tasks where vision sensors are too limited and a standard vision system may not be cost effective. In-Sight 7010 is a completely self-contained vision system that includes autofocus optics and integrated lighting in a compact IP67 rated industrial housing. The vision library on the In-Sight 7010 has been simplified to focus on the tools most frequently used in straightforward vision applications. The built-in autofocus capability of the In-Sight 7010 makes it recommended for production situations requiring regular part changes, or applications that require the vision system to be placed in hard-to-reach spaces where manual focus adjustment would be difficult. The compact In-Sight 7010 features integrated white lighting that is suitable for most vision applications. If a specific colour light is required to highlight particular parts or features, four optional coloured lights are available.
