In-Sight 2000 Vision Sensors

The power of an In-Sight vision system with the simplicity and affordability of a vision sensor


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.

All In-Sight 2000 vision sensors use In-Sight Explorer EasyBuilder to set up and monitor machine vision inspections.  The intuitive, point-and-click interface guides users through a step-by-step setup process for easy application development.  With EasyBuilder, even novice vision users can easily set up, configure, and install a vision sensor.  The TestRun validation utility for In-Sight Explorer helps ensure that the reliability of inspections won’t change, even when conditions do, by monitoring whether programming changes have affected the system.  

Powerful location, presence/absence, measurement, and counting tools can be configured directly within the EasyBuilder interface, making it easy to set up and solve pass/fail and go/no go inspections.  

Lighting & Lens Filters
A white LED ring light with diffuser cover is standard on most In-Sight 2000 models. Field interchangeable red, blue and IR ring lights and lens filters are also available.

Light Covers
An optional polarizer cover works with the white LED ring light to reduce undesirable reflections on shiny part surfaces. A clear cover is also available to increase image brightness in longer distance applications.

An 8 mm S-Mount/M12 lens is standard on most In-Sight 2000 models. Field interchangeable 3.6 mm, 6 mm, 12 mm, 16 mm, 25 mm S-Mount/M12 lens options are also available.

Mounting Brackets
Multiple brackets and adapters are available for mounting an In-Sight 2000 vision sensor at nearly any point of inspection on the production line. And IP670-rated enclosure is also available for installation in washdown areas and other harsh environments.

I/O and Cables
Network, power and I/O cables are available in several lengths. And when additional I/O is needed, the CIO-1400 I/O Expansion module extends the capabilities of In-Sight 2000 series vision sensors with 7 general purpose inputs and 8 outputs.

Power Supply
A compact, DIN-rail mount 24 volt DC power supply is available.

VisionView Display Panel
VisionView 900 is a powerful, low-cost operator interface panel for monitoring and controlling In-Sight 2000 vision sensors on the factory floor.

Operators can log on to the In-Sight 2000 and take it online or offline to load a job. A red or green LED indicator displays pass/fail results. Operators can see the image graphics as red or green depending on the results of a particular inspection and they can change inspection job and tool settings.

Other Display Options

As Cognex we have many display options in addition to the classic operator panel, like application for PC or industrial PLC. We also have  HMI web that guarantee the interface with all the main browser. In this way we can check the job on the camera with every device that has a internet access like smartphones, tablet.
