Cognex releases In-Sight Explorer 4.4 for the In-Sight vision system
12 March 2010
Cognex has introduced In-Sight Explorer 4.4, a new software release for its In-Sight vision systems that adds new colour tools, improved calibration and expanded data access within its EasyBuilder configuration software, and expands support for larger line scan images. The new software also introduces InspectEdge, a powerful and easy-to-use new family of tools for detecting edge defects and inspecting edge pairs.
In-Sight’s new InspectEdge tool gives users the flexibility to solve vision applications that rely on accurate edge detection, such as finding dents in can lids or edge cracks in solar wafers. InspectEdge finds gaps and defects in both straight and circular-shaped edges, and can inspect the width of features for gaps and defects by tracking multiple edge pairs. Support for irregular shapes in InspectEdge enables better performance on challenging width inspections, such as automotive glue beads. The tool’s graphical user interface makes it simple to set up an edge inspection, and also gives users more flexibility to define defect criteria such as size, area and distance, and the ability specify outliers in order to eliminate noise.
Key features of the new release include:
More powerful distortion correction for line-scan cameras, and support of up to 8192 lines for large part imaging.
Improved 32 point calibration in the In-Sight spreadsheet and more calibration options within EasyBuilder with easier access to pattern, blob, and edge data.
A position timing feature for scheduling programmed and job complete discrete outputs.
Available in a wide range of models to meet any price and performance requirement, In-Sight vision systems set the standard for automated inspection and quality assurance across a wide range of industries. In-Sight’s EasyBuilder configuration software helps users of all experience levels to quickly set up their entire In-Sight application—no programming or spreadsheet knowledge required. In-Sight vision systems can be easily integrated with any factory network or automation control system and feature an optional operator display panel for monitoring the runtime operation of any In-Sight vision system on the network.
