Self-contained vision system has 5.0 megapixel resolution

Paul Boughton
Cognex Corporation is introducing the In-Sight 5605, a high-resolution, self-contained vision system that is claimed to offer unprecedented power and flexibility for applications that require visualisation of very small defects, even in a large field of view. The In-Sight 5605 offers a wide range of features and advantages, including full 5.0 megapixel resolution, support for Gigabit Ethernet communication, IP67 protection to withstand dust and washdowns, plus a full library of high-performance Cognex vision tools for easy application setup and reliable performance.
Bhaskar Banerjee, the business unit manager for vision systems at Cognex, comments: “The In-Sight 5605 offers more than twice the resolution previously available with any In-Sight system. With more pixels available and support for GigE communication, In-Sight’s advanced vision tools can handle applications - such as high-accuracy gauging, finding very small edge defects or reading ID codes from dozens of palletised products simultaneously - with even greater speed and precision.”
Cognex is also releasing a new version of its In-Sight Explorer software. In addition to supporting the new In-Sight 5605, In-Sight Explorer 4.4.1 adds several key features and ease-of-use improvements, including:
* Cognex 1DMax, a 1D barcode reading tool that is optimised for omnidirectional barcode reading. Cognex 1DMax provides excellent reading capability for codes that are difficult to read due to damage, blur, reflections and low contrast.
* Support for multiple simultaneous connections to the In-Sight Modbus TCP server.
* Ability to generate output pulse trains and clocked data pulses for controlling devices such as stepper motors.
* Enhancements to Mitsubishi robot communications.
