Cognex In-Sight 7010 with autofucus and integrated lighting, Courtesy CognexCognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX) has introduced the In-Sight 7010, an entry level vision system developed specifically for inspection tasks where vision sensors are too limited and a standard vision system may not be cost effective.

Every aspect of the In-Sight 7010 has been designed to make deploying a vision system easier than ever before. It is a completely self contained vision system that includes autofocus optics and integrated lighting in a compact IP67 rated industrial housing. Applications can be configured very quickly using the intuitive Cognex EasyBuilder user interface. The vision library on the In-Sight 7010 has been simplified to focus on the tools most frequently used in straightforward vision applications.

"We are very excited about the In-Sight 7010. We believe it will open up a new range of applications where vision systems can be applied," said Bhaskar Banerjee, Business Unit Manager, Vision Systems. "The In-Sight 7010 can be taken right out of the box and put straight on the production line with minimum time, cost and effort."

Integrated Autofocus
The built-in autofocus capability of the In-Sight 7010 makes it ideal for production situations requiring regular part changes, or applications that require the vision system to be placed in hard-to-reach spaces where manual focus adjustment would be difficult.

With autofocus, users can simply set and save the focus values associated with the inspection of each part. Users can also fine-tune focus levels manually with the interactive software. "All of this allows seamless part change over without any manual adjustment of the lens," said Banerjee.

The In-Sight 7010 autofocus system is available with five different lens options to match the working distance and field of view requirements of each application.

Integrated Illumination

The compact In-Sight 7010 features integrated white lighting that is suitable for most vision applications. If a specific color light is required to highlight particular parts or features, four optional colored lights are available.

The autofocus optics and integrated lighting developed for the In-Sight 7010 are also being deployed as options across the full In-Sight 7000 product range.

Software Tools

In-Sight 7010 features EasyBuilder and a selection of the key inspection, measurement, alignment and guidance vision tools found on other In-Sight vision systems.

With the unique combination of hardware features and software tools, the In-Sight 7010 is the ideal out-of-the-box solution for many straightforward vision applications.

The In-Sight 7010 is available now. For more information, visit www.cognex.com/IS7000.
