In-Sight Micro Vision Systems

World’s smallest 5MP self-contained vision system

In-Sight Micro Vision Systems Features

In-Sight® Micro 8000 series smart cameras, a new family of ultra-compact, standalone vision systems deliver industry-leading vision tool performance at PC speeds, all in the form factor of a traditional “dumb” GigE Vision® camera. Measuring just 31mm x 31mm x64mm, all In-Sight 8000 series models feature power over Ethernet (POE), and provide the best standalone vision system option for integrating into small spaces.

As the world’s smallest, full line, stand alone vision system, the In-Sight 8000 series offers range of vision systems available in VGA, 1MP, 2MP and 5MP resolutions. Supporting Gigabyte Ethernet for high speed communications, these vision systems offer very fast acquisition and two performance levels to meet a diverse array of machine vision demands.

Smallest vision systems
In-Sight Micro compresses an entire self-contained vision system into an amazingly small package about the size of a traditional image-capture-only camera. All In-Sight Micro models can be mounted at angles of up to 45-degrees using the In-Sight non-linear calibration tool. These vision systems are ideal for integrating into tight spaces on robots and hard-to-reach machinery anywhere on the production line.

The In-Sight 8000 models deliver high-performance vision tools, faster communication speeds, and high resolution in a small package that is ideal for integrating into small spaces where machine space is a premium.

A pattern matching breakthrough
PatMax RedLine™ was designed with one goal in mind: blazing fast pattern matching on all In-Sight 8000 series vision systems. In typical applications, PatMax RedLine runs 4 to 7 times faster than PatMax – or faster! – with no loss of search accuracy or robustness. Together with PatMax RedLine, the In-Sight 8000 series can reduce cycle times and increase throughput without compromising inspection accuracy.

Unmatched performance and reliability
Every In-Sight Micro vision system model delivers best-in-class performance. Most models are equipped with a full library of proven Cognex vision tools through the easy to use In-Sight Explorer software. These include Pattern Matching (PatMax Redline, PatMax, and PatFind),  Filtering (Grayscale and Color), Color tools (Color ID, True Color Extraction, Color Histogram), Inspect Defects (Surface Flaw, Flex Flaw, Inspect Edge), and ID (1D/2D, OCR).

Easy to deploy and maintain
In-Sight 8000 series vision systems are conveniently setup with the In-Sight Explorer software. In-Sight Explorer combines the guided step by step setup of EasyBuilder® with the additional power and flexibility of the spreadsheet for greater control and customizing of application data. Also included is the new scripting function which uses standard JavaScript to simplify data-intensive tasks like geometric analysis of hundreds of points, parsing and comparison of text or ID code results, or complex final result logic. TestRun system validation, Cognex Connect suite of communications protocols and the Cognex Explorer control center gives you the tools you need to keep your line operating on schedule and at full throughput.
