The In-Sight 7000 series is a series of vision systems designed for industrial inspection, location, defect detection, guidance, alignment and measurement applications, which feature powerful vision tools, all in a compact, industrial IP67 package. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.The In-Sight 7000 series offers features that make the system ideal for more applications than ever before. These features include: Autofocus Users can simply set and save the optimal focus values associated with the inspection of specific parts, making In-Sight 7000 the ideal choice for production situations requiring regular part changes or projects that require the vision system to be placed in hard-to-reach spaces. Integrated Lighting and Lens In-Sight 7000 offers integrated, field-replaceable lighting with five different color options, giving users total flexibility to support any vision application.

Smarter Tools In-Sight 7000 users can rely on proven In-Sight measurement, location and inspection vision tools and the flexible EasyBuilder environment to make all inspection, defect detection, guidance, alignment and measurement applications easy to set up and deploy. New tools include OCRMax for optical character reading and verification applications. OCRMax gives In-Sight the power to achieve the highest read rates. OCRMax is fast, easy to set up and simple to use across all platforms. Faster Image Capture  The In-Sight 7000 delivers the highest acquisition speeds available with In-Sight with a maximum of over 100 image captures per second. The high acquisition rate provides users reliable inspection of products on even the fastest bottling and pharmaceutical production lines.

Lighting power and control: Unlike most vision systems, the In-Sight 7000 has the capability to power and control specialized lighting directly which eliminates the need for external power supplies.

Even More Options: Cognex Connect offers the widest range of built-in communication protocols that interface directly with the vision system. The compact In-Sight 7000 features built-in Ethernet, RS232 serial and multiple discrete I/O connections. The system can communicate directly to virtually any PLC or robot controller and manage multiple smart cameras remotely from a networked PC or HMI, simplifying implementation and reducing costs.
