Rugged, ultra-high-resolution, standalone smart cameras for detailed inspections and measurements

In-Sight Vision Tools

In-Sight vision processing tools consist of functions that extract and process image features for further data analysis and decision making. The In-Sight vision toolset consists of:

Blob Tools

Blob tools are used to detect features have similar shades of grey scale. Blob is very useful for quantifying defect sizes or for locating features that do not have a repeatable shape. Blob can be used for monochrome and color images to quantify the amount of a particular color present.

Edge & InspectEdge Tools

Edge tools are used to detect dark and light transitions on a part. Edge tool results can be used to measure distances and can also be used to inspect by counting the number of edges found. Edges can also be used to detect and measure circles and arcs. The InspectEdge tool tracks an edge of a part to inspect for defects.

Flaw Detection Tools

The Flaw Detection tools, including Flex Flaw and Surface Flaw, are used to inspect contours and the surface area of parts. These advanced technologies are able to adapt to variations in lighting and in part appearance.

Geometry Tools

Geometry tools are used to measure critical dimensions of a part with point-and-click simplicity. Angles, arcs, diameters and point-to-line distances use real world calibration to provide accurate and repeatable results.

Histogram Tools

Histograms are used to inspect or monitor features of parts based on brightness.

ID Tools

1DMax and 2DMax+ barcode reading algorithms achieve the highest read rates for 1-D and 2-D barcodes, including decoding challenging 2-D direct part mark (DPM) codes.

Image Filtering Tools

Advanced image filtering is used to highlight features or remove features of parts before doing additional processing with other vision tools. For color cameras, true 24-bit color filters are available.

Optical Character Recognition Tools

The OCV/OCR tool segments, extracts and trains fonts for optical character recognition (OCR) and optical character verification (OCV) of characters in an image. The font trainable tool accurately reads low-contrast or unevenly-spaced characters on confusing backgrounds.

Color Tools

Color tools are used to identify and inspect objects based on color data and also measure by evaluating the amount of color pixels present. Advanced color vision technology maintains accuracy even with lighting variations that can cause problems for traditional color vision systems.

PatMax RedLine

Cognex PatMax RedLine is the industry’s gold standard for part and feature location. PatMax’s powerful pattern-matching technology locates parts and assemblies while tolerating changes in rotation, scale, and lighting variations.

High Dynamic Range Plus (HDR+) Technology

with and without HDR+ comparison

HDR+ stretches the boundaries of high-dynamic-range (HDR) technology to enhance image contrast across the entire image with no reduction in acquisition speed.
