Identification and label verification software
By Mary Del
Cognex Corporation has released a new version of its In-Sight Track & Trace identification and data verification solution for health-care serialization. A followup of In-Sight Track & Trace 1.0, this version includes enhancements that address additional requirements for pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers to achieve unit-level product traceability. Customers can use In-Sight Track & Trace 2.0 with multiple networked In-Sight vision systems to decode human-readable text along with 2D and 1D bar codes. The pre-programmed add-on software package needs little set up through a touchscreen or HMI, the company says, adding that In-Sight Track & Trace can be easily integrated into third-party serialization software or MES with industrial protocol support and built-in I/O controls. The technical controls needed for FDA 21 CFR Part 11 validation, including secure user authentication and automatic audit trail generation, are also included.
