COGNEX Corporation, represented by SciTech , has added three models to its family of In-Sight vision sensors.
The new 4000 Series vision sensors offer speed improvements of up to 5x over previous In-Sight models, setting a new standard of high performance, low-cost vision.
Additionally, each sensor features dual processors to enable simultaneous, dedicated vision processing and network communications.
The Series consists of the following new models:
* In-Sight 4000 - an ultra-high performance vision sensor offering fast frame rates and accelerated vision tool performance.
* In-Sight 4001 - a high resolution (1024 x 768) version of the In-Sight 4000 for applications that require increased resolution for inspecting small objects, or capturing images of larger parts.
* In-Sight 4100 - a compact, remote head camera (1.25" L x 1.25" D) version of the In-Sight 4000. Ideal for applications where a small and/or lightweight camera head is required, or for harsh industrial environments where protection from dust and wash down is necessary.
Like other In-Sight vision sensors, each In-Sight 4000 Series sensor is equipped with built-in Ethernet communications, a full library of proven Cognex vision tools for locating, inspecting, measuring, and identifying parts, and a spreadsheet interface for fast, easy application set up.
In-Sight 4000 Series sensors can be easily integrated with PC-based factory automation devices via Ethernet communications, and with PLCs on the factory floor via EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, ModBus, and ProfiBus communications.
The sensors are equipped with all vision software tools pre-installed. A number of optional In-Sight-compatible accessories are available including LED-based lighting modules, an Ethernet workstation, network gateway modules, sensors and industrial camera enclosures.
