Rugged, ultra-high-resolution, standalone smart cameras for detailed inspections and measurements

In-Sight 9000 Features

The In-Sight 9000 is a rugged, ultra-high-resolution line of standalone vision systems. With its ability to acquire and process exceptionally detailed images, the In-Sight 9000 delivers high accuracy part location, measurement, and inspection over a large area—even when mounted at longer distances. Line scan and area scan image acquisition options are available for imaging continuously moving or stationary objects. Plus, a full suite of vision tools configurable through the In-Sight EasyBuilder interface solves a wide range of applications across industries.

Large field of view without sacrificing resolution

The In-Sight 9000 captures a large field of view which allows users to inspect sizable objects while maintaining exceptional image resolution. This also enables customers to mount the vision system away from conveyors and maintain a safe distance from hazardous equipment.

A single camera solution to multi-camera applications

The In-Sight 9000 eliminates the need to install multiple cameras in applications with large objects or parts. As a single camera solution, the In-Sight 9000 reduces complexity, calibration requirements, and cost compared to multi-camera systems. The self-contained unit reduces the amount of equipment to be installed on space-restricted production lines. Plus, IP67-rated housing protects the system from liquids and dust without the need for an external enclosure.

Fully configurable—no programming required

The In-Sight 9000 solves applications that previously required programming on PC- or controller-based systems. The In-Sight EasyBuilder interface guides operators through a step-by-step setup process, while the advanced spreadsheet view offers direct access to vision tools. A single application setup environment allows customers to work within the same UI, regardless of image resolution needs or application complexity.

Industry-leading vision tools and image processing technology

The In-Sight 9000 comes equipped with Cognex’s industry-leading vision tools and image processing technology, including PatMax RedLine—the gold standard for fast, robust, and high accuracy 2D pattern matching. The In-Sight 9912 model also features HDR+, which stretches the boundaries of high dynamic range (HDR) technology to enhance image contrast across the entire image with no reduction in acquisition speed.

Line scan and area scan image acquisition options

The In-Sight 9000 offers both line scan and area scan image acquisition methods.
