Cognex announced the Cognex Industrial Camera (CIC) series, a new line of GigE Vision digital industrial cameras designed for easy integration with VisionPro and CVL vision software. The first four models of the CIC series are compact (29mm x 29mm), monochrome, area scan cameras designed to address the most popular combinations of resolution, speed and pricing in the machine vision market. More models are planned for the future.
Integration with VisionPro software provides access to a comprehensive library of patented computer vision tools—from geometric object location and inspection to identification and measurement algorithms. Combined with a flexible and powerful PC-based development interface, VisionPro software makes it easy to create and deploy solutions for the most challenging machine vision applications.
Cognex offers a three-year warranty for the CIC series of cameras as well as a hot swap program. These new Cognex Industrial Cameras are available now:
- CIC-300: 640×480 resolution (VGA), 120 frames per second, CCD sensor, global shutter
- CIC-2000: 1628×1236 resolution (2MP), 20 frames per second, CCD sensor, global shutter
- CIC-4000: 2048×2048 resolution (4MP), 25 frames per second, CMOS sensor, global shutter
