Cognex introduces the In-Sight Micro 8000 series smart cameras, a new range of ultra-compact standalone vision systems. The In-Sight Micro 8000 series displays a performance of cutting-edge vision tools at PC speeds, all in a traditional GigE Vision camera format.
"As speed increases on lines, manufacturers demand increased accuracy, a wider field of view and faster performance of vision tools; all without a PC in the workshop, explains Joerg Kuechen, vice president and director of the vision products division. By combining the very fast acquisition speeds of a small, autonomous In-Sight Micro 8000-series smart camera with Paax RedLine's lightning speed of geometric recognition, our customers can optimize resolution, speed and performance, even on the fastest production lines. This allows them to reduce cycle times, boost productivity, increase resolution without loss of performance, or perform additional inspections without lengthening cycle times. »
Like all In-Sight vision systems, these new models include the powerful In-Sight Explorer software. This software combines EasyBuilder's simple step-by-step installation with the power and flexibility of displaying the spreadsheet for control. In addition to Paax RedLine technology, the In-Sight Micro 8000 series uses these proven In-Sight vision tools at speeds that previously required a powerful PC. All contained in a case the size of an industrial image camera.
The In-Sight Micro 8000 series measures only 31mm x 31mm x 63mm. It includes Ethernet cable power, which reduces wiring and makes these vision systems the ideal solution for integration into small spaces on hard-to-reach robots and machines. They can be deployed anywhere on the production line for guidance, inspection, measurement and industrial identification applications.
