September 9, 2017 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Sep. 8, 2017 – Cognex has introduced the In-Sight 7000 series, describing it as a suite of ultra-rugged, highly modular standalone vision systems.
The second generation In-Sight 7000 series promises to perform “fast and precise inspections that keeps pace with increasing line speeds, while its compact form factor easily fits into space-constrained production lines.” The In-Sight 7000 modular design offers more than 400 different field configurations, and is IP67-rated and includes Flexible Image Technology. Like all Cognex In-Sight vision systems, the In-Sight 7000 uses In-Sight Explorer to set up and monitor machine vision inspections. This software includes the EasyBuilder interface with step-by-step application setup and the In-Sight spreadsheet view for increased control. The vision system features an LED ring light that produces diffused illumination across the entire image, and a variety of light colours, optical filters and polarizers.
