In-Sight Laser Profiler 2D

An easy-to-use measurement system for inspecting and verifying product dimensions


The In-Sight laser profiler is a measurement system used to verify dimensionality for gauging, inspection, and ID applications.

The In-Sight laser profiler is configured using the In-Sight EasyBuilder user interface. This intuitive, easy-to-use software makes it simple for manufacturing and quality engineers to develop, deploy, and support accurate and reliable measurements on the factory floor. 





Set up and deploy in 4 easy steps

  1. Acquire Profile—With a click of a button, profile optimization technology renders the most accurate outline of your part.
  2. Locate Object—Sophisticated object detection technology minimizes the need for costly fixturing and ensures measurements are performed in the correct location.
  3. Measure—Flexible In-Sight laser profiler toolset extracts features, constructs reference points, counts key features, and verifies whether a product has been manufactured within tolerance.
  4. Communicate Results—Measurements are sent to a PLC or an overall pass/fail is sent directly to a discrete output. Profiles and measurements can be stored on a controller for downstream analysis or quality control logging.


Monitor production line activity from anywhere on the factory floor

The In-Sight laser profiler offers mobile, platform-independent visualization for accessing HMIs (human machine interfaces) from anywhere on the network. An HTML-based user interface allows users to monitor production line activity from any laptop, tablet, smart phone or other mobile device.


Trusted technology for reliable, repeatable results

The In-Sight laser profiler system combines Cognex displacement sensor heads with the In-Sight VC200 vision controller. Using industry-leading algorithms, the system extracts the profile, performs highly accurate measurements and analyses the results. Advanced vision tools provide an accurate surface location even if the surface has defects.
