In-Sight VC200 Multi Smart Camera Vision System

Cognex VC200The In-Sight® VC200 multi smart camera vision system brings the proven reliability of standalone In-Sight vision systems to multi camera vision applications. You can easily attach up to four In-Sight smart cameras to a controller for multi-view inspections in your manufacturing environment. For the first time, you can leverage the power of distributed computing with multiple smart cameras for high-performance applications.

While traditional multi-camera systems slow down with each additional camera, the processing power of the In-Sight VC200 vision system actually increases with each smart camera added. This incremental power is possible because each smart camera contains its own processor—this allows you to run In-Sight vision tools, such as PatMax Redline, independently on each camera with no reduction in speed of the overall application regardless of how many cameras are attached.

The In-Sight VC200 uses a flexible workflow diagram to control image acquisition, vision logic, decision making, and factory communication. The In-Sight spreadsheet is used to configure the smart cameras for vision inspection.
