Decrease the time it takes to develop, deploy, and maintain 3D and 2D multi-camera applications

VisionPro Machine Vision Software Features

Cognex Designer is an integrated development environment for use with VisionPro software. Creating machine vision applications has become increasingly complex over the years.

Key capabilities of Cognex Designer:

  • Rich HMI user interface—The integrated HMI user interface builder allows for easy development of professional-looking user interfaces with advanced functionality
  • Graphical environment—Graphical sequence diagrams allow machine vision engineers to quickly build 90-100% of vision their systems without the need for advanced programming
  • Integrated factory floor and I/O communication—Communication with Rockwell, Siemens, and Mitsubishi PLCs (without scripting) directly within Cognex Designer
  • Access to included world-class vision tools—Bundled with VisionPro® software, providing access to PatMax®, PatMax AutoTune, IDMax®, and OCRMax vision tools
  • Database, audit trail, and recipe management
  • Integrated license security—License security is built into the hardware to replace hardware dongles that can become misplaced or compromised at organizations
  • Project collaboration and reuse—Export and import Cognex Designer templates to maximize project collaboration and reuse
  • Qualified with Cognex hardware—Cognex Industrial Cameras, Cognex 3D laser displacement sensors, Cognex 8704e 4-port GigE Frame grabber, CC24 I/O card and VC5 vision controller
