By Alison Dunn
Cognex Corporation has released two new products, the Advantage 100 vision system and the AE2 Advantage engine designed for integration into Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) devices and equipment. The Advantage 100 vision system is a compact (23mm x 44mm x 54mm), enclosed vision system with customizable optics, lighting and Ethernet communications suitable for integration into large automated clinical diagnostic systems. The AE2 Advantage vision engine provides an even smaller (14.5mm x 29.1mm x 20.5mm) form factor designed for tight integration deep inside the enclosure of OEM devices manufactured in high volumes such as medical instruments and printers.
