Cognex Corporation (cognex.com) announces the release of In-Sight® Explorer 4.9, software that offers an expanded set of inspection tools and an enhanced Cognex Connect™ communications suite featuring the iQ Sensor Solution network (iQSS).

Advanced inspection technology
This latest version of In-Sight Explorer software includes the surface flaw tool and the scene correction filter. The surface flaw tool simplifies the detection of surface defects such as scratches, discoloration, burn/black spots, label wrinkles, small dents, tears or pinholes. The new scene correction filter balances images with uneven illumination to help present the defect detection tools with evenly lit images.

Combined with previously released inspect edge and flexible flaw detection tools, In-Sight Explorer 4.9 software offers customers in the automotive, consumer products, electronics and food industries a suite of inspection tools that reduces costs and helps them protect their brand image.

“Our newest software demonstrates our ability to simplify the detection of product defects for our customers. The surface flaw tool and scene correction filter greatly ease the setup of applications that inspect for defects on a part or product’s surface,” says Herb Lade, vice president and business unit manager of vision systems at Cognex. 

Advanced integration for factory floor automation

 The Cognex Connect suite of factory communication protocols ensures that In-Sight vision systems can easily communicate with a broad range of devices on the factory floor. The release of In-Sight Explorer 4.9 software extends this ability to the Mitsubishi L-Series PLC line by incorporating the iQSS protocol. Ensuring the security of factory floor applications is another critical requirement in the automation architecture. In-Sight Explorer 4.9 works with Cognex Directory Server (CDS) to centralize authorization and authentication control for all In-Sight vision system users, network wide, as part of the overall enterprise information security architecture. With the addition of CDS, Cognex offers the most complete software suite available for managing the security of machine vision systems.
