AB Fair 2004: Cognex adds color, high resolution to vision sensors

Orlando, FL—Cognex Corp. introduced its newly available In-Sight 5400C color vision sensor and In-Sight 5401 high-resolution vision sensor at Rockwell Automation's Allen-Bradley Automation Fair 2004, Oct. 27-28, at the Orange County Convention Center.


Orlando, FL— Cognex Corp. added its newly available In-Sight 5400C color vision sensor and In-Sight 5401 high-resolution vision sensor to its 5000 Series of vision sensors at Rockwell Automation's Allen-Bradley Automation Fair 2004 , Oct. 27-28, at the Orange County Convention Center.

In-Sight 5400C is designed to perform a range of color inspection tasks. For example, it can be used in the automotive industry to identify motor camshafts by color; in the food and beverage industries to verify the color of packages; and in the electronics industry to verify the correct position of color LEDs at electrical test stations.

In-Sight 5401 is a high-resolution (1,024 x 768 pixels) version of the 5100 for high-accuracy gauging applications in automotive and other general assembly applications that require increased resolution for inspecting small objects, or capturing images of larger parts.

'The In-Sight 5000 Series product line has been well received by customers because of its outstanding performance and rugged design,' says Jim Hoffmaster, Cognex's president and COO. 'With the new 5400C and 5401 industrial-grade models, customers can deploy high-performance color inspection and high-accuracy gauging wherever it's needed on the factory floor.'

As with other 5000 Series sensors, 5400C and 5401 are self-contained sensors that meet IEC specifications for shock and vibration, and have an IP67 (NEMA 6) rating for dust and wash-down protection, without needing a separate industrial enclosure. These units also include Cognex's vision spreadsheet interface and In-Sight Explorer software, which provide advanced tools to simplify application development and network administration. Finally, the company's PatMax solution for feature and object location is available as an option.
