NATICK, Mass., March 5, 2013 — Cognex Corp. has announced the VisionView 900 industrial operator panel for the proprietary In-Sight vision systems and Ethernet-ready DataMan bar-code readers. The IP65-rated touch screen allows users to view images and overlay graphics for up to nine of these systems simultaneously without the need for a PC on the factory floor. The 9-in. display allows fast identification of issues on the manufacturing line for a prompt response, improving quality and reducing downtime. Users can modify inspection parameters, adjust camera focus, and load and save jobs previously configured on the vision system. Images can be saved for subsequent troubleshooting and process optimization, using either the Ethernet network or one of the built-in USB ports. Password protection regulates the operator’s control over regions of interest and vision tool parameters.
