For over a decade, Air Hydro Power has been a certified Cognex re-seller of In-Sight machine vision systems. No other automation solutions provider in Kentucky or Alabama comes close to the experience we have with Cognex In-Sight vision systems. Cognex In-Sight® vision systems are unmatched in their ability to inspect, identify and guide parts. These self-contained, industrial grade vision systems combine a library of advanced vision tools with high-speed image acquisition and processing.
In addition to being the number one re-seller of In-Sight vision systems, Air Hydro Power is also a certified trainer of Cognex products our training professionals can offer courses at your location or at our state of the art Louisville training center.
The In-Sight 2000 Seriesincludes an integrated, high-performance image formation system consisting of field interchangeable lenses and a patent-pending LED ring light that produces even, diffuse illumination across the entire image and eliminates the need for costly external lighting. Lenses and a variety of colored lights can be easily swapped out as needed to meet application requirements.
Together with the In-Sight Explorer EasyBuilder® interface, which provides a fast, step-by-step application setup, the In-Sight 2000 series allows even novice users to achieve extremely reliable inspection performance in nearly any production environment. In-Sight 2000 series vision sensors can also be configured for in-line and right-angle mounting installation.
The In-Sight 7000 series vision system represents a breakthrough in flexibility, performance and ease of integration. This powerful vision system performs fast accurate inspections while its compact footprint easily fits into space-constrained production lines. The unique, modular design is highly field-customizable to your application requirements.
Ultra-high resolution, standalone smart camera 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. Line scan and area scan image acquisition options are available for imaging continuously moving or stationary objects. Plus, a full suite of vision tools configurable through the In-Sight EasyBuilder interface solves a wide range of applications across industries.
Large field of view without sacrificing resolution
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.
Line scan and area scan image acquisition options
The In-Sight 9000 offers both line scan and area scan image acquisition methods.
The In-Sight 9902L line scan vision system is designed to inspect large, cylindrical, and continuously moving objects. It captures 2,000 pixels with each line, delivering 32MP images (16,000 lines) that enable vision tools to perform highly detailed inspections. Each pixel line is acquired at 67,000 lines per second (15us scan rate) to keep up with the fastest production lines.
Available in monochrome and color models, the In-Sight 9912 area scan vision system is ideal for inspecting large, stationary parts. Acquiring 12MP (4096 x 3000 pixel) images, the 9912 captures detailed images for high accuracy measurements and inspections without sacrificing field of view.
The In-Sight® VC200 multi smart camera vision system brings the proven reliability of standalone In-Sight vision systems to multi camera vision applications. You can easily attach up to four In-Sight smart cameras to a controller for multi-view inspections in your manufacturing environment. For the first time, you can leverage the power of distributed computing with multiple smart cameras for high-performance applications.
While traditional multi-camera systems slow down with each additional camera, the processing power of the In-Sight VC200 vision system actually increases with each smart camera added. This incremental power is possible because each smart camera contains its own processor- this allows you to run In-Sight vision tools, such as PatMax® Redline™, independently on each camera with no reduction in speed of the overall application regardless of how many cameras are attached.
The In-Sight VC200 uses a flexible workflow diagram to control image acquisition, vision logic, decision making, and factory communication. The In-Sight spreadsheet is used to configure the smart cameras for vision inspection.
In-Sight 5000 Series - The unprecedented vision power and extreme ruggedness of the best-selling In-Sight 5000 Series is helping thousands of manufacturers around the world improve productivity, ensure product quality and lower manufacturing costs.
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.
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.
True Color Filtering and easy-to-use Color ID and Color Extraction tools make color inspections easier than ever. Setting up and performing color inspections using these tools requires simple selection of a color region and then color training.
There is no need to understand R-G-B values or other complicated machine vision concepts. The In-Sight 5705C offers color image filtering in addition to grayscale filtering and allows you to train multiple color models using the color library to identify which color the target part is.
Make it small. Make it smart. Make it easy. Make it colorful!
Cognex has achieved all of this and more with the next-generation In-Sight® Micro vision system . In-Sight Micro packs an entire vision system into an amazingly small package measuring just 30mm x 30mm x 60mm the size of a remote head camera.
World's smallest stand-alone 5MP vision system
The In-Sight Micro 8405 is an ultra-compact 5MP (megapixel) vision system that is a perfect option for integrating into small spaces. The small form factor features Power over Ethernet to minimize cabling and offers high speed communication with Gigabit Ethernet so the In-Sight 8405 truly goes where no vision system has gone before. This model offers a large field of view as well as high resolution and optimized vision tools to ensure no sacrifice in speed and performance.
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 tools and graphics palette along with menu-driven tool property sheets makes job configuration simpler.
Ease-of-use is built into the heart of In-Sight vision systems starting with easy to use but powerful vision tools.
Round Tripping- One can use the ease of EasyBuilder and power of the spreadsheet with the flexibility of round tripping back and forth.
The EasyBuilder® interface- walks you through the process of setting up your vision application, step by step.
Working from an image of the part, four simple steps complete the application setup:
1. START- Connect your In-Sight vision system on your network and set up the image to inspect.
2. SET UP TOOLS- Locate and inspect the part using a library of over 40 industry proven vision tools.
3. CONFIGURE RESULTS - Point-and-click setup for inputs, outputs, and communication to PLCs, robots and HMIs.
4. FINISH- Choose the images to record while inspecting, and put your In-Sight vision system online.
That's all it takes to complete an application! In a fraction of the time that you would normally spend learning how to set up a vision system, you can have your entire solution configured and deployed.
