In-Sight Spreadsheet and Vision Controller Standard

In-Sight® Spreadsheet and Vision Controller Standard class teaches the basic topics of how to configure a vision application using the spreadsheets programming environment and user interface along with the Cognex Vision Controller.

In-Sight® Spreadsheet and Vision Controller Standard product class gives In-Sight users an overview of the hardware and software used by In-Sight Vision Systems. With the focus on getting the most from the latest In-Sight Explorer and spreadsheet interface, users learn how to walk through the process of setting up a vision application, step by step in the in spreadsheet and Vision Controller, and spreadsheet programming best practices. The Vision Controller development environment requires some programming and uses intuitive menus enabling them to focus on solving their application quickly and effectively.
