TEST & MEASUREMENT: Cognex® Corp. recently introduced the addition of a new line scan system to the industry-leading In-Sight® 5000 series vision system product line. The In-Sight 5604 line scan vision system combines industrially rugged In-Sight hardware and best-in-class vision tools with a high-speed, 1K line scan imager. This eliminates the need for PC-based vision systems and separate line scan camera heads. The line scan sensor used by In-Sight is much more light-sensitive than the imagers used in most line scan cameras. This reduces the cost and complexity of the lighting and makes the In-Sight 5604 line scan vision system exceptionally easy to integrate into space-constrained areas on the manufacturing line. With support for hardware and software encoders, the In-Sight 5604 has the flexibility needed to solve the image acquisition challenges across a wide range of applications involving fast moving discrete parts on a conveyor, cylindrical parts or large parts.
“We’re seeing tremendous customer enthusiasm for an In-Sight line scan product,” said Justin Testa, executive vice president and vision systems business unit manager. “We’ve already been approached by customers in food, beverage, pharmaceutical, postal/package sortation and packaged consumer goods industries who want to start using the 5604 on their manufacturing lines.”
The new In-Sight 5604 line scan model is available now. For more information and to download trial software, visit www.cognex.com/5000.
