Cognex In-Sight Micro

Extremely small and flexible all-in-one vision systems

Cognex In-Sight Micro – Smallest all-in-one Vision System

Make it small. Make it smart. Make it easy. Make it colourful! Cognex has achieved all of this and more with the next-generation Cognex In-Sight® Micro vision system.

Cognex Insight Micro

Smallest…In-Sight Micro packs an entire vision system into an amazingly small package measuring just 30mm x 30mm x 60mm—the size of a remote head camera. Its small size, together with a unique non-linear calibration tool that enables mounting at angles of up to 45-degrees makes In-Sight Micro ideal for mounting in tight spaces on robots and hard-to-reach machinery anywhere on the production line.

Smartest…In-Sight Micro includes the proven Cognex vision tool library to handle the broadest range of vision applications for the widest array of industries. With the new EasyBuilder configuration software, even the most powerful vision tools are accessible to users with little vision experience.

Easiest…No PC required! The unique VisionView® operator interface panel makes it easier than ever to monitor production processes. VisionView automatically detects any Cognex vision system on the network and simultaneously displays information from up to nine vision systems in a tiled view.

And Colourful!

The colour revolution has arrived—with innovative colour tools and several models to choose from, the In-Sight Micro family sets a performance standard for all-in-one colour vision systems. From food processing to consumer goods packaging, from pharmaceutical inspection to automotive assembly—In-Sight Micro can now solve the most difficult colour applications, including colour sortation, colour-based product-identification and assembly verification, and highly sensitive monitoring of colour hues.

In-Sight Micro Models:

Standard Resolution

  • Offering a range of performance choices, the In-Sight Micro models handle even the highest speed manufacturing lines in the smallest vision system footprint available.
    Models: In-Sight 1020, In-Sight 1050, In-Sight 1100, In-Sight 1400

High Resolution

  • When large parts need to be inspected for small defects or precise measurements, turn to the high resolution models for greater accuracy.
    Models: In-Sight 1402, In-Sight 1403, In-Sight 1403C

ID / Barcode

  • In-Sight Micro ID Readers use our unmatched identification software tools for reading and verifying 1-D and 2-D codes, and advanced OCR/OCV tools for reading and verifying text.
    Models: In-Sight 1110, In-Sight 1410, In-Sight 1412, In-Sight 1413


  • Includes the powerful Extract Colour software tool to inspect colour features of a part and the robust Match Colour software tool to recognize parts based on their colour.
    Models: In-Sight 1100C, In-Sight 1400C, In-Sight 1403C

in sight micro seriesNo programming experience is required to use EasyBuilder and you don’t need to generate complicated tables. Instead, the interface guides the user step by step through the whole set-up process to the finished solution, while at the same time offering expert users an option for switching to the tried-and-trusted spreadsheet programming of the In-Sight series.

The system is rounded off by the optional touchscreen control unit Vision View, which provides fascinating visualisation options for a broad range of diverse applications. Vision View automatically detects all connected Cognex devices and can, for example, display up to nine systems separately.

Examples of possible application areas for the series are visual robot control, position detection functions, measurement of shapes and geometries, analysis of 1-D and 2-D codes, optical character recognition and verification (OCR, OCV), and all kinds of quality assurance processes.
