"The result of this cooperation is a complete solution that incorporates
visualization, control and drive technology for high-speed and
high-precision product monitoring in production line operation. The
Cognex In-Sight product line is optimally integrated in the B&R
System via POWERLINK," states Hans Wimmer, B&R Managing Director.
Machine manufacturers will benefit not only from synchronization of
Cognex In-Sight products and the B&R control system, they will also
benefit from easy integration of a wide range of machine designs. The
new vision solution is also highly compatible with all POWERLINK-based
B&R product lines.
The Cognex image processing systems for checking, identifying and
feeding parts feature quick start-up times and a significantly reduced
amount of wiring. This means considerable savings potential for the
machine manufacturer and end-user. Extensive diagnostic options
facilitate smooth operation of the high-resolution application in
large-scale production facilities.
