Cognex machine vision systems and industrial barcode readers deliver instant improvements to any manufacturing process, enabling products to be made at higher speed, without defects and at lower cost. For quality control and compliance, our machine vision systems and vision sensors provide consistent repeatability, superior accuracy, and minimal setup time.
In-Sight Vision Systems Features
Cognex In-Sight® vision systems are unmatched in their ability to inspect, identify and guide parts. These self-contained, industrial-grade vision systems combine a library of advanced vision tools with high-speed image acquisition and processing. A wide range of models including line scan, the highest resolution color systems, and the smallest 5MP stand alone vision system you can get meet all price and performance requirements. Best of all, configuring and deploying an In-Sight vision system has never been easier.
Highest resolution, highest performance from a machine vision system
The true test of a vision system is that it works under real world conditions on the factory floor. This principle is what ensures that In-Sight vision systems can give you reliable, repeatable performance even in the most challenging vision applications.
Exceptional application and integration flexibility
The flexibility of the In-Sight family of vision systems can be defined in a number of ways:
Easy to deploy and maintain
With the In-Sight EasyBuilder® configuration software, even the most powerful vision tools are accessible to users with little vision experience. With In-Sight vision systems, you have the tools you need to keep your line operating on schedule and at full throughput.
In-Sight Vision Systems Models
The Checker® vision sensor is an award winning all-in-one industrial sensor with built-in camera, processor, lighting, optics, and I/O capable of detecting and inspecting up to 6,000 parts per minute–all in an industrial IP67 enclosure small enough to fit into the tightest of spaces.

Cognex Designer is an integrated development environment for 2D multi-camera and 3D vision applications. Creating machine vision applications has become increasingly complex over the years, and Cognex Designer provides the tools for breaking down the complexity into manageable tasks in order to complete vision projects successfully in a shorter period of time.
VisionPro 8.4 Capabilities Now Provided with Cognex Designer 2.0
Cognex offers complete vision solutions consisting of vision controllers, vision hardware, and vision software. Cognex Designer Vision Software recently has been introduced as Cognex’s complete software environment to allow organizations to build 2D, 3D, and multi-camera vision software applications. As a result, important changes have been made for VisionPro software and how it is provided.
Beginning with the introduction of Cognex Designer software, Cognex Designer automatically includes the latest VisionPro software and capabilities. As a result, VisionPro is now offered together with Cognex Designer. This enables users to take advantage of the graphical capabilities of Cognex Designer with the vision tools of VisionPro software.
If you are an existing VisionPro user, you will have the option to stay in the VisionPro software environment. Details are provided later on this page. However, we believe you will want to consider building new vision applications using the new Cognex Designer / VisionPro package. The development and maintenance efficiencies are significant in using the combination of graphical capabilities and PLC integration that Cognex Designer provides together with the vision tools provided by VisionPro.
