In-Sight 5705

High performance color, line scan, and monochrome vision system


The In-Sight 5705 series offers high performance with high resolution making it the fastest 5MP self contained vision system in the world. Both systems support Gigabit Ethernet and the new blazing fast PatMax® Redline™ tool.

Full image speed is significantly higher with the In-Sight 5705 Series- seven times faster running the closed filter and the edge magnitude filter than a two megapixel system. In practical terms, it’s over half a second faster. This dramatic speed increase reduces cycle times or allows more time for running more detailed inspections.

  • World’s only self-contained 5MP (megapixel) color vision system
  • World’s fastest self-contained 5MP vision system
  • Powerful Cognex vision tool library including new PatMax RedLine™ and JavaScript support and true 24-bit color processing
  • High speed, high-performance vision tools




Industrial-grade design
The In-Sight 5705 and 5705C self-contained 5MP vision systems set a new industry standard for performance, flexibility and ease-of-use.

The In-Sight 5705 series offers high performance with high resolution making it the fastest 5MP self contained vision system in the world.

The In-Sight 5705 color follows making it the only standalone 5 MP color vision system in the world!

Both systems support Gigabit Ethernet and the new blazing fast PatMax® Redline™ tool.

In-Sight 5705C, the world’s first self-contained, 5MP, color vision system, simplifies even the most challenging color machine vision applications with advanced color tools and 24-bit color image filters.


Unmatched performance and reliability
Every In-Sight 5600 and 5705 vision system model delivers best-in-class performance. Most models are equipped with a full library of proven Cognex vision tools through the easy to use In-Sight Explorer software.


Easy to deploy and maintain
With the In-Sight EasyBuilder® configuration software, even the most powerful vision tools are accessible to users with little vision experience. With In-Sight vision systems, you have the tools you need to keep your line operating on schedule and at full throughput:

  • Scripting functionality,
  • TestRun system validation,
  • Cognex Connect suite of communications protocols, and
  • Cognex Explorer control center

Intuitive Software Options
The In-Sight Explorer spreadsheet view provides a robust, flexible and efficient way to configure the vision tools and handle the data created from a vision application. Drag and drop vision tool pallet along with tool property sheets make job configuration simple.

The flexible In-Sight Explorer EasyBuilder® user environment makes all inspection, defect detection, guidance, alignment and measurement applications easy to set up and deploy.


Smart tools
Patented, industry-leading vision tools such as PatMax®, OCRMax™, color, ID, blob, calibration, edge, and flaw detection tools are just a click away.


System validation
TestRun validation enables you to refine, test and verify inspection systems automatically.


Built-in communications
The Cognex Connect™ suite offers the widest range of built-in communication protocols that interface directly interface to any PLC, robot or HMI on your factory network.

Featured Accessory: Visual Inspection using VisionView Operator Interface
The VisionView® operator interface is ideal for monitoring and controlling In-Sight vision systems and Ethernet-enabled DataMan industrial ID readers on the factory floor, and allows operator controls specific to the application. The VisionView application software is available on four platforms for flexible visual inspection.

In order to achieve the highest quality images possible, Cognex offers a wide array of light modules including direct, diffused on axis, cloudy day, rings, spots, and bar lighting. When basic lighting works for the application, integrated ring lights are ideal for In-Sight vision systems.

I/O Module
The I/O Breakout Module provides easy connection of In-Sight systems to power, acquisition triggers, outputs, and serial devices. I/O Expansion Modules increase the number of I/O points available to In-Sight systems, and provide full RS-232 handshaking.

Cognex offers a full range of high-quality compact camera lenses designed specifically for machine vision applications.

Inspect for assembly errors, surface defects, damaged parts and missing features. Identify the orientation, shape and position of objects and features.

Gauge parts to check critical dimensions and/or measure components for sorting and classification processes.

Guide automation equipment and robotic devices. Align parts for high accuracy assembly operations.

Read and verify alphanumeric characters marked directly on parts and printed on labels.

Barcode Reading
Read 1-D barcodes and 2-D matrix codes as part of an overall inspection.
