Cognex Corp. has unveiled a camera-based vision sensor for reading 2-D matrix and linear bar codes. The company says that the In-Sight ID reader can read up to 50 codes per second, even those that have been poorly formed, distorted or degraded. This Ethernet-ready sensor can read codes on fast, continuously moving parts and can track them throughout the manufacturing process. Because it can read 2-D codes, it also can provide verification metrics that can be used to monitor how well marking equipment is functioning.
