The In-Sight 9000 is a rugged, ultra-high-resolution line of standalone vision systems. With its ability to acquire and process exceptionally detailed images, the In-Sight 9000 delivers high accuracy part location, measurement, and inspection over a large area—even when mounted at longer distances. Line scan and area scan image acquisition options are available for imaging continuously moving or stationary objects. Plus, a full suite of vision tools configurable through the In-Sight EasyBuilder interface solves a wide range of applications across industries.
The In-Sight 9000 captures a large field of view which allows users to inspect sizable objects while maintaining exceptional image resolution. This also enables customers to mount the vision system away from conveyors and maintain a safe distance from hazardous equipment.
The In-Sight 9000 eliminates the need to install multiple cameras in applications with large objects or parts. As a single camera solution, the In-Sight 9000 reduces complexity, calibration requirements, and cost compared to multi-camera systems. The self-contained unit reduces the amount of equipment to be installed on space-restricted production lines. Plus, IP67-rated housing protects the system from liquids and dust without the need for an external enclosure.
The In-Sight 9000 solves applications that previously required programming on PC- or controller-based systems. The In-Sight EasyBuilder interface guides operators through a step-by-step setup process, while the advanced spreadsheet view offers direct access to vision tools. A single application setup environment allows customers to work within the same UI, regardless of image resolution needs or application complexity.
The In-Sight 9000 comes equipped with Cognex’s industry-leading vision tools and image processing technology, including PatMax RedLine – the gold standard for fast, robust, and high accuracy 2D pattern matching. The In-Sight 9912 model also features HDR+, which stretches the boundaries of high dynamic range (HDR) technology to enhance image contrast across the entire image with no reduction in acquisition speed.
The In-Sight 9000 offers both line scan and area scan image acquisition methods.
In-Sight 9902L Line Scan
The In-Sight 9902L line scan vision system is designed to inspect large, cylindrical, and continuously moving objects. It captures 2,000 pixels with each line, delivering 32MP images (16,000 lines) that enable vision tools to perform highly detailed inspections. Each pixel line is acquired at 67,000 lines per second (15us scan rate) to keep up with the fastest production lines. The 9902L only requires a small view of the target part, making it an ideal choice for installations with restricted field of view or mounting space.
In-Sight 9912 Area Scan
Available in monochrome and color models, the In-Sight 9912 area scan vision system is ideal for inspecting large, stationary parts. Acquiring 12MP (4096 x 3000 pixel) images, the 9912 captures detailed images for high accuracy measurements and inspections without sacrificing field of view.
The In-Sight 9000 vision system uses In-Sight Explorer software with EasyBuilder to set up and monitor machine vision inspections on a mobile, platform independent visualization. A simple point-and-click interface allows customers to build interactive, web-based HMIs remotely accessible via a web browser over the network. Operators can view inspections, controls engineers can modify parameters, and plant managers can review performance statistics.
In-Sight Explorer EasyBuilder is an intuitive interface that guides operators through a step-by-step setup process to quickly configure vision applications without any required programming. With EasyBuilder, even novice vision users can easily set up, configure, and install a vision sensor.
While many applications can be solved using the point-and-click EasyBuilder interface, users can access the In-Sight spreadsheet for direct access to the vision tools and communication options. Access to the spreadsheet provides programming flexibility to make essential adjustments and offers assurance that you will be able to solve any vision application.
