Cognex Corporation: Entry-level vision system
The In-Sight 7010 from Cognex is 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.
The In-Sight 7010 is a completely self-contained vision system that includes autofocus optics and integrated lighting in a compact IP67-rated industrial housing. Applications can be configured very quickly using the intuitive EasyBuilder user interface. The vision library on the In-Sight 7010 has been simplified to focus on the tools most frequently used in straightforward vision applications.
The In-Sight 7010 can be taken right out of the box and put straight on the production line with minimum time, cost, and effort.
The built-in autofocus capability of the In-Sight 7010 makes it suitable 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.
With autofocus, users can simply set and save the focus values associated with the inspection of each part. Users can also fine-tune focus levels manually with the interactive software.
The system is available with five different lens options to match the working distance and field of view requirements of each application.
The compact In-Sight 7010 features integrated white lighting that is suitable for most vision applications. If a specific color light is required to highlight particular parts or features, four optional colored lights are available.
The autofocus optics and integrated lighting developed for the In-Sight 7010 are also being deployed as options across the full In-Sight 7000 product range.
In-Sight 7010 features EasyBuilder and a selection of the key inspection, measurement, alignment and guidance vision tools found on other In-Sight vision systems.
