July 17, 2012
NATICK, MA July 17, 2012. Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX), the world's leading supplier of
machine vision systems, has introduced the In-Sight® 7010,
an entry level vision system developed specifically for inspection tasks where vision sensors are too limited and a standard
vision system may not be cost effective.
Every aspect of the In-Sight 7010 has been designed to make deploying a vision system easier than ever before.
It is a completely self contained vision system that includes autofocus optics and integrated lighting in a compact IP67
rated industrial housing. Applications can be configured very quickly using the intuitive EasyBuilder® user interface.
The vision library on the In-Sight 7010 has been simplified to focus on the tools most frequently used in straightforward
“We are very excited about the In-Sight 7010. We believe it will open up a new range of applications where vision systems
can be applied,” said Bhaskar Banerjee, Business Unit Manager, Vision Systems. “The In-Sight 7010 can be taken right out of
the box and put straight on the production line with minimum time, cost and effort.”
The built-in autofocus capability of the In-Sight 7010 makes it ideal for production situations requiring regular part changes,
or applications that require the vision system to be placed in hard-to-reach spaces where manual focus adjustment would be
With autofocus, users can simply set and save the focus values associated with the inspection of each part.
Users can also fine-tune focus levels manually with the interactive software. “All of this allows seamless part change over without
any manual adjustment of the lens,” said Banerjee.
The In-Sight 7010 autofocus system is available with five different lens options to match the working distance and field of
view requirements of each application.
The compact In-Sight 7010 features integrated white lighting that is suitable for most vision applications.
If a specific color light is required to highlight particular parts or features, four optional colored lights are available.
The autofocus optics and integrated lighting developed for the In-Sight 7010 are also being deployed as options across the
full In-Sight 7000 product range.
Proven Software Tools
In-Sight 7010 features EasyBuilder and a selection of the key inspection, measurement, alignment and guidance vision tools
found on other In-Sight vision systems.
With the unique combination of hardware features and software tools, the In-Sight 7010 is the ideal out-of-the-box solution
for many straightforward vision applications.
The In-Sight 7010 is available now. For more information,
