Models DVT 515 and DVT 535 machine vision sensors from Cognex are intended for a entry-level inspection, automatic identification, and gauging applications.

Natick, MA— DVT 515 and 535 machine vision sensors from Cognex are said to be affordable and easy to use devices that meet a range of performance requirements, from simple parts inspection to defect detection, high-resolution, and color applications. Models operate with the manufacturer’s Intellect software, which facilitates set-up, integration, and maintenance, and are compatible with FrameWork. They have built-in Ethernet for connecting to factory networks and software, simplifying set-up of communications with other vision systems, PLCs, SCADA systems, PCs, and databases.

Entry-level sensors offer a full range of features. They are “not limited to a single or even a few generic machine vision functions,” said Kris Nelson, Cognex senior vice president, vision sensors, “but handle a broader range of applications than similarly-priced vision sensors.” Nelson said users can easily combine vision tools to inspect, measure, count, find features, and compare patterns to automate inspection and ensure quality in a variety of applications and industries.
