Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX) has introduced the In-Sight Micro 8000 series smart cameras, a new family of ultra-compact, standalone vision systems. The In-Sight Micro 8000 series delivers industry-leading vision tool performance at PC speeds, all in the form factor of a traditional “dumb” GigE Vision camera.
Like all In-Sight vision systems, these new models are conveniently set up with the powerful In-Sight Explorer software. This software combines the simple, step-by-step EasyBuilder setup with the power and flexibility of spreadsheet view for greater control. In addition to PatMax RedLine technology, the In-Sight Micro 8000 series runs these industry-proven In-Sight vision tools at speeds that previously required a high-performance PC. All of this comes in a package no larger than an industrial image-capture-only camera.
The In-Sight Micro 8000 series measures just 31mm x 31mm x 63mm and includes Power over Ethernet minimizing cabling and making these vision systems ideal for integrating into tight spaces on robots and hard-to-reach machinery. They can be deployed almost anywhere on the production line for guidance, inspection, gauging and industrial identification applications.
