In-Sight Track and Trace
Cognex has released In-Sight Track and Trace, an add-on software package for Cognex In-Sight vision systems. In-Sight Track and Trace delivers a ready-to-deploy data capture and verification solution designed to help pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers achieve unit-level product traceability. The package combines powerful Cognex code reading and verification software with a pre-configured job file and HMI interface that reduces setup time and makes it easy to exchange data with third party systems, as needed for a full serialisation solution.
In-Sight Track and Trace is GS1 and FDA 21 CFR Part 11-ready, and can be used with multiple networked In-Sight vision systems to: read 2D and 1D barcodes, including data matrix, GS1-128, GS1 DataBar and Pharmacode; verify correct ID code contents, including compliance with the GS1 Healthcare data standard; grade data matrix codes during production to detect changes in print quality; verify the accuracy of printed text; and detect label misalignment and skew.
Technical controls needed for FDA 21 CFR Part 11 validation are also provided, including secure user authentication and automatic audit trail generation.
In-Sight Track and Trace is easy to configure and operate using a simple touch screen interface. Developers can integrate the interface into a PC-based HMI or custom application using the included Cognex HMI Display Control for .NET. For a ready-to-deploy solution, the software package can also be controlled using the Cognex VisionView 700 Operator Interface panel or VisionView PC software.
Compact, all-in-one In-Sight vision systems are typically easier to integrate, maintain and validate for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance than PC-based vision systems, and are available in dozens of models to deliver the performance needed to meet the requirements of any application or packaging line.
