Cognex In-Sight 2000 vision sensors combine the power of In-Sight vision systems with the simplicity and affordability of an industrial sensor. Ideal for solving error-proofing applications, these vision sensors set new standards for value, ease of use, and flexibility and can adapt to virtually any production line environment. Key features include:

  • Powerful In-Sight vision tools
  • Easy setup with EasyBuilder
  • Field interchangeable lighting and optics
  • Modular body design

Powerful In-Sight Vision Tools

Proven In-Sight vision tools–including pattern, pixel count, brightness, contrast, and edge tools—solve simple location, presence/absence, measurement, and counting applications. In-Sight 2000 vision sensors can inspect multiple targets within a single image, as well as perform multiple inspection types relying on different tools. When increased functionality or capability is required, Cognex offers models with toolsets that include image filters, OCR, blob, and numeric data output and models with resolution up to 1280 x 960 (1.2MP).

Easy Set-Up with EasyBuilder

Even novice users can achieve reliable inspection performance using In-Sight Explorer software with EasyBuilder’s simple, intuitive interface—the same one used in all In-Sight vision systems. For more complex pass/fail and go/no-go inspections, users can build on their experience to create vision applications using more advanced In-Sight vision systems in the same In-Sight Explorer interface.

Modular Body and Lighting

The In-Sight 2000 series features a modular design with field changeable lights, lenses, filters and covers that make it easy to choose the correct configuration for your work cell.  A modular body design:

  • Provides maximum flexibility to mount in tight spaces
  • Simplifies wiring and optical paths
  • Minimizes the need to design new mechanical fixtures

Configurable in-line or right-angle mounting provides maximum flexibility in tight spaces.  An integrated, patent-pending LED ring light produces even, diffuse illumination across the entire image, minimizing the need for costly external lighting.

In-Sight 2000 Mini Vision Sensor Features

The compact size of the Cognex In-Sight 2000 Mini expands the number of potential application for vision sensors and allows users to deploy vision sensors into more areas of their operation. In-Sight 2000 Mini models are 68% smaller by volume than standard In-Sight 2000 vision sensors, so they can fit into tight spaces.  In-Sight 2000 Mini models also come standard with a liquid lens autofocus module, enabling faster job changeovers and the ability to change focus when the sensor is mounted in inaccessible places. Key features include:

  • Ultra-compact integrated light module
  • Autofocus powered by liquid lens technology
  • 4 cross polarized and co-linear polarized LEDs
  • Ideal for machines with limited mounting space Image of Cognex In-Sight 2000 Mini Vision Sensor

Integrated light optimizes image formation

A small but powerful light module provides integrated lighting, making it ideal for close-range applications and extremely space-restricted machines. This also removes the need for costly external lighting. Lenses and lighting are field-interchangeable to adjust to different application requirements.

Autofocus technology adjusts to varying part heights

An autofocus module powered by liquid lens technology automatically focuses to preset positions, eliminating the need to manually refocus the lens or physically move the camera sensor during changeovers or job set up. This allows the sensor to be used on lines with frequent line changeovers and variable part heights.

Powerful vision tools solve a wide range of applications

Proven In-Sight vision tools—including pattern, pixel count, brightness, contrast, and edge tools—solve simple location, presence/absence, measurement, and counting applications. When increased functionality or capability is required, Cognex offers models with toolsets that include image filters, OCR, blob, and numeric data output and models with resolution up to 1280 x 960 (1.2MP). The In-Sight 2000 Mini vision sensor can inspect multiple targets within a single image, as well as perform multiple inspection types relying on different tools.
