The "What's Possible with Vision" Blog - Samantha Frost

Samantha Frost
Realizing at an early age I couldn’t make money off of mud pies and torturing my 3 older brothers and younger sister, I left home and went to school in the big city. I studied engineering at Northeastern University in Boston. Dr. Bob went there for his undergrad and was dedicating a building. Being the nerd I was, I was an officer at the student chapter of IEEE so I was there when the building was dedicated. I thought – wow – this guy was funny, kind of nutty, and brilliant. Wonder what type of company this it. And then it started – I worked as a co-op starting off in their Tech Support group. I figured, since I enjoyed helping people (I guess making up for the torture my brothers endured all of those years) and I was a nerd with a bit of ADD, this was a perfect match. In the Tech support group I supported the full spectrum of products, from spreadsheet based In-Sight 2000 programming, GUI based Checkpoint and OMI systems to full blown Vision library programming in C++ and VB (CVL, VisionPro).

Fast and furious, not fancy: In-Sight 500 is designed to tackle the fastest production lines

Cognex has responded to industry’s need to inspect objects even faster with In-Sight 500.  This new high‐performance, fixed‐mount vision system vision system can acquire images at speeds as high as 500 frames per second (fps).  At 500fps, In-Sight will keep up with even the fastest production lines.

In-Sight 500 is powered by a proprietary vision chip technology, Cognex VSoC™ (Vision System on a Chip), which gives this vision system the power to acquire images with windowed acquisition at such high speeds.
The rugged IP65‐rated housing, fast acquisition speed and powerful processor make the In-Sight 500  ideal for applications requiring relatively simple inspection applications.

If your application requires sub-7 millisecond cycle times and simple inspections using blob, edge and histogram, the In-Sight 500 can meet your challenges better than other vision systems.

There is an acute need for this level of performance among global manufacturers, particularly in the medical device, packaging and pharmaceutical industries where the programming interface, extensive tool set and communication of the In-Sight 500 can be used very effectively.

In-Sight 500 is available now. For more information, go to http://www.cognex.com/IS500.
