Cognex VisionView Now Available on Two Platforms

Touch screen operator interface for In-Sight® adds PC software option and new features for better image visualization and analysis

Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX) has enhanced its VisionView® operator interface with new features that enable more detailed visualization of parts, easier storage of failed images, and a PC display option. VisionView is a touch screen display interface for Cognex In-Sight vision systems that makes it easy for operators to view and closely monitor what the vision systems are doing on their production lines.

VisionView 1.2 expands the choices available to users for customizing their display and capturing application data. New pan and zoom capability enables closer examination of defective parts, and makes it easier to accurately focus the vision system for high resolution images. Production line operators can also download images of failed parts automatically to an external storage device, and have the ability to save application parameter changes directly to an existing job, or rename and save them as a new job.

Also new in VisionView 1.2 is the option to run the VisionView operator interface on a PC. The VisionView PC software has all the features of the operator panel, plus the flexibility to use any display that can be connected to a PC.

“These new enhancements give factory floor operators even more control over their vision applications and better insight into what is happening on the production floor,” said Justin Testa, Executive Vice President and Vision Systems Business Unit Manager. “VisionView makes it easy for operators to manage system performance and achieve the results they are looking for from their vision applications.”

VisionView 1.2 software is available now.
