Cognex Corp. says its VisionPro software provides a flexible, graphical programming environment that allows users to quickly develop customized vision solutions. The software has a drag-and-drop graphical interface for prototyping machine vision applications using ActiveX controls. The configured controls can be converted into Visual Basic or C++ and directly deployed. Third-party components can be integrated for I/O and process control. VisionPro is available on a variety of the company's frame grabbers and with packaged systems requiring no PC.
