Cognex In-sight Micro
In-Sight Micro Vision Systems

In-Sight Micro is the smallest vision system series at 30mm x 30mm x 60mm. Featuring power over Ethernet (POE), these ultra-compact vision systems are the right option for integrating into small spaces. Starting with the smallest 5MP (megapixel) self-contained vision system - In-Sight Micro vision systems models are available in a range of performance levels and tool sets to meet a diverse array of machine vision demands.

Smallest vision systems

In-Sight Micro compresses an entire self-contained vision system into an amazingly small package measuring just 30mm x 30mm x 60mm—the size of a traditional remote head camera.

The ultra-compact 5MP In-Sight 8405 model features a flexible form factor which can be deployed straight or at a right angle and delivers high-performance vision tools, faster communication speeds, and high resolution in a small package that is ideal for integrating into small spaces where machine space is a premium. Other In-Sight Micro models can be mounted at angles of up to 45-degrees using the In-Sight non-linear calibration tool. These vision systems are ideal for integrating into tight spaces on robots and hard-to-reach machinery anywhere on the production line.

A pattern matching breakthrough

PatMax RedLine was designed with one goal in mind: blazing fast pattern matching on the new In-Sight 5MP vision systems, including the In-Sight 8405. In typical applications, PatMax RedLine runs 4 to 7 times faster than PatMax – or faster! – with no loss of search accuracy or robustness. Together with PatMax RedLine, the 8405 can reduce cycle times and increase throughput without compromising inspection accuracy.

Unmatched performance and reliability

Every In-Sight Micro vision system model delivers best-in-class performance. Most models are equipped with a full library of proven Cognex vision tools through the easy to use In-Sight Explorer software. These include Pattern Matching (PatMax Redline, PatMax, and PatFind), Filtering (Grayscale and Color), Color tools (Color ID, True Color Extraction, Color Histogram), Inspect Defects (Surface Flaw, Flex Flaw, Inspect Edge), and ID (1D/2D, OCR).

Easy to deploy and maintain

With the In-Sight EasyBuilder® configuration software that includes scripting functionality to condenses repetitive, complex calculations and logic into a single cell to reduces spreadsheet clutter, even the most powerful vision tools are accessible to users with little vision experience. TestRun system validation, Cognex Connect suite of communications protocols and the Cognex Explorer control center gives you the tools you need to keep your line operating on schedule and at full throughput.
