Cognex Showcases Vision Systems and Readers
Published: October 25th, 2012
Cognex Corp. is demonstrating its In-Sight 7010 vision systems and DataMan 300 ID readers in Booth S-651 at PackExpo.
The Cognex DataMan 300 series of fixed-mount ID Readers for reading 1-D and 2-D bar codes feature intelligent tuning that automatically selects the optimum settings for the integrated, bank-controlled lighting and for the autofocus optics for each application. The feature makes working distance adjustments as easy a pushing a button.
Available liquid lens optics allows any DataMan 300 reader to be upgraded from fixed focus to autofocus. Liquid lens variable autofocus technology is ideal for applications that require a large depth of field or when refocusing is needed after a product changeover.
DataMan readers use advanced code reading algorithms. 1DMax+ uses patent-pending Hotbar technology that can locate and extract code data faster and more accurately than any other system. The 2DMax+ algorithm provides superior reading performance on damaged and poorly marked 2-D codes on both stationary and high speed lines, the company says.
Cognex In-Sight 7010 is an entry-level vision system designed for easy vision system deployment. The completely self contained vision system includes autofocus optics and integrated lighting in a compact IP67 rated industrial housing. Applications can be configured using the intuitive EasyBuilder user interface. Its vision library has been simplified to focus on the tools most frequently used in straightforward vision applications.
The In-Sight 7010 in addition features built-in autofocus capability making it ideal for production situations requiring regular part changes, or applications that require the vision system to be placed in hard-to-reach spaces where manual focus adjustment would be difficult. The user sets and saves the focus values associated with the inspection of each part and fine-tunes focus levels manually with the interactive software, so part change occurs seamlessly without any manual adjustment of the lens.
The compact In-Sight 7010 features integrated white lighting, with four optional colored lights available.
