In-Sight 9912 Series
Rugged, ultra-high-resolution, standalone smart cameras for detailed inspections and measurements
The In-Sight 9000 is a rugged, ultra-high-resolution line of standalone vision systems. With its ability to acquire and process exceptionally detailed images, the In-Sight 9000 delivers high accuracy part location, measurement, and inspection over a large area—even when mounted at longer distances.
The In-Sight 9000 captures a large field of view which allows users to inspect sizable objects while maintaining exceptional image resolution. This also enables customers to mount the vision system away from conveyors and maintain a safe distance from hazardous equipment.
A single camera solution to multi-camera applications
The In-Sight 9000 eliminates the need to install multiple cameras in applications with large objects or parts. As a single camera solution, the In-Sight 9000 reduces complexity, calibration requirements, and cost compared to multi-camera systems. The self-contained unit reduces the amount of equipment to be installed on space-restricted production lines. Plus, IP67-rated housing protects the system from liquids and dust without the need for an external enclosure.
Fully configurable – no programming required
The In-Sight 9000 solves applications that previously required programming on PC- or controller-based systems. The In-Sight EasyBuilder interface guides operators through a step-by-step setup process, while the advanced spreadsheet view offers direct access to vision tools. A single application setup environment allows customers to work within the same UI, regardless of image resolution needs or application complexity.
Industry-leading vision tools and image processing technology
The In-Sight 9000 comes equipped with Cognex’s industry-leading vision tools and image processing technology, including PatMax RedLine—the gold standard for fast, robust, and high accuracy 2D pattern matching. The In-Sight 9912 model also features HDR+, which stretches the boundaries of high dynamic range (HDR) technology to enhance image contrast across the entire image with no reduction in acquisition speed.
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.
Patented, industry-leading vision tools such as PatMax®, OCRMax™, color, ID, blob, calibration, edge, and flaw detection tools are just a click away.
TestRun validation enables you to refine, test and verify inspection systems automatically.
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.
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.
Read 1-D barcodes and 2-D matrix codes as part of an overall inspection.
