Cognex has introduced the In-Sight 500, suitable for inspecting parts on very fast production lines. The In-Sight 500 vision system is a high-performance, fixed-mount vision system packaged in a rugged, IP65-rated housing. It is powered by Cognex VSoC (Vision System on a Chip), which enables the system to process images at up to 500fps with windowed acquisition.
In addition to the standard In-Sight programming interface, expansive tool set and communication methods, the system achieves speeds of 100fps at the full 1,024 x 768 pixels of resolution and 200fps at 640 x 480. The system provides the ability to further window an acquired image which can accelerate the acquisition to as high as 500fps.
In-Sight 500 can acquire images while simultaneously processing applications. Its fast acquisition speed and powerful processor make this vision system ideal for applications requiring relatively simple inspection applications. The full suite of In-Sight tools and communication methods is available with the system, including Cognex Connect which supports EtherNet/IP and Profinet, among other communication protocols.
