Cognex Launches In-Sight Explorer V4.4

Cognex has launched In-sight Explorer 4.4 for its In-sight vision system, which adds new colour tools, improved calibration and extended data access within its Easybuilder configuration software. The software also expands support for larger line-scan images and introduces Inspectedge, an easy-to-use family of tools for detecting edge defects and inspecting edge pairs. The Inspectedge tool is said to give users the flexibility to solve vision applications that rely on accurate edge detection, such as finding dents in can lids or edge cracks in solar wafers.

Inspectedge finds gaps and defects in both straight and circular-shaped edges, and can inspect the width of features for gaps and defects by tracking multiple edge pairs. Support for irregular shapes in Inspectedge enables better performance on challenging width inspections, such as automotive glue beads. The tool's graphical user interface is said to make it simple to set-up an edge inspection and also gives users more flexibility to define defect criteria such as size, area and distance, and the ability to specify outliers in order to eliminate noise.

In-sight Explorer 4.4 software also includes colour tools in Easybuilder that simplify the process of colour training. Trained colours can be shared among multiple tools and application-specific colour tools make the task of solving colour applications easy and flexible. V4.4 of the software also offers more powerful distortion correction for line-scan cameras, and support of up to 8192 lines for large part imaging. In addition, In-sight Explorer 4.4 offers improved 32-point calibration in the In-sight spreadsheet and more calibration options within Easybuilder with easier access to pattern, blob and edge data; and a position timing feature for scheduling programmed and job complete discrete outputs.

In-sight vision systems are available in a range of models to meet any price and performance requirement. The Easybuilder configuration software helps users of all experience levels to quickly set up their entire In-sight application - no programming or spreadsheet knowledge is required. In-sight vision systems can be easily integrated with any factory network or automation control system and feature an optional operator display panel for monitoring the runtime operation of any In-sight vision system on the network.
