Cognex Releases Rugged, Ultra-High-Resolution Vision Systems

Industry leader in machine vision debuts fully configurable, standalone vision systems that combine high accuracy with large fields of view

Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX), the leader in machine vision and industrial barcode reading, today announced the release of the In-Sight 9000, a series of ultra-high-resolution vision systems. The In-Sight 9000 series acquires exceptionally detailed images for high-accuracy part location, measurement, and inspection over large areas—even when mounted at long distances.

The In-Sight 9000 series consists of two models, the 9902L (2K line scan) and the 9912 (12MP area scan), both IP67-rated for use in harsh factory environments. This unprecedented combination of large image size and rugged design is available for the first time as a fully configurable, standalone In-Sight vision system, offering users a single-camera solution to view large areas while preserving accuracy.

“Cognex is excited to introduce the In-Sight 9000 series, which addresses growing trends in factory automation for greater accuracy and large fields of view,” said Joerg Kuechen, Senior Vice President of Vision Products at Cognex Corporation. “The In-Sight 9000 series allows users to inspect, measure, and identify multiple features within a single view without programming complicated PC-or controller-based systems.”

Like all In-Sight vision systems, the In-Sight 9000 series simplifies application design and setup with the familiar, easy-to-use In-Sight Explorer EasyBuilder interface. Cognex’s full suite of industry-leading vision tools and technologies, including PatMax RedLine and High Dynamic Range Plus(HDR+) technology, solves a wide range of applications. The Cognex In-Sight 9000 series is available now. For more information, visit or call 1-(855) 4-COGNEX.
