In-Sight Explorer Software 3.3

Reliable Performance in the Most Challenging Robotic Applications

Cognex's In-Sight® Explorer software release 3.3 includes new calibration, communication and other tools that minimize integration time when deploying vision in robotic guidance and inspection applications. Features include non-linear calibration that improves repeatability by correcting for lens and perspective distortion; robot drivers and sample code for tight and seamless integration; and PatMax® to accurately and reliably locate unfixtured parts. The software makes it faster than ever to integrate In-Sight vision sensors on virtually every robot platform, and gives system integrators the flexibility to use world-class vision tools for part location, identification, inspection and measurement on their robot of choice. In-Sight Explorer 3.3 is available on a range of IP67-rated hardware platforms. From standard to high-resolution models, all In-Sight vision sensors are available with high-flex cables designed for robotic applications. For end-of-arm mounting in light payload applications or wherever space is limited, the recently released In-Sight 5400R vision sensor offers a compact, remote-head camera. All In-Sight vision sensor models include a powerful library of vision software that ensures reliable performance in the most challenging robotic applications. Guiding robots with machine vision eliminates costly precision fixturing and allows production lines to process multiple products without tooling changeover. COGNEX Natick, Mass.
