In-Sight 9000 Line Scan Series

Self-contained vision system for inspecting large, cylindrical, and continuously moving objects


The In-Sight 9902L 2K line scan smart camera is a high resolution self-contained vision system ideal for detailed inspections of large, cylindrical, or continuously moving objects.

The 9902L acquires up to 16,000 lines of 2,000 pixels per line to produce a 32MP image that can used to detect even the smallest features and defects. Each pixel line is acquired at 67,000 lines per second to keep up with the fastest production lines.

This standalone vision system only requires a small view of the target part, making it an ideal choice for installations with restrictive field of view or mounting space requirements




There are many applications for line scan, the most common including:

  • Cylindrical objects , such automotive filters and batteries, where 100% if the product’s surface can be inspected as it rotates along the production line.
  • Label inspection on curved surfaces , such as soup cans or bottles wrappers, that can be “unrolled” into a 2D flat surface for inspection.
  • Large objects , such as solar cells and car door panels that can be imaged and inspected as a whole.


The In-Sight 9902L is the only embedded industrial line scan system that processes images directly on the camera. Onboard processing eliminates the inconvenience of having to install a separate controller. Plus, the IP67-rated housing protects the system from liquids and dust without the need for an external enclosure. The In-Sight 9902L acquires up to 16,000 lines of 2,000 pixels per line to produce a 32MP image that can used to detect even the smallest features and defects.

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.
