Cognex Connect Vision Systems Integration

Cognex Connect makes integrating an In-Sight machine vision system into your existing automation systems an easy task with a comprehensive suite of tools and communication capabilities.

Cognex Connect allows you to seamlessly manage your In-Sight vision system, whether you’re connecting them directly to PLCs or robot controllers or managing a number of devices from a central network PC or HMI. Cognex Connect ensures that you have reliable communications between your In-Sight systems and your factory floor equipment.

Any PLC or Fieldbus Device

Cognex Connect comes with built-in support for most common open-standard Fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet communication protocols allowing you to connect to PLCs and a range of automation devices from Rockwell, Mitsubishi, Siemens, and others without trouble. Also available are discrete I/O and serial protocols for support with older PLCs and devices that lack network connectivity.

Any Robot

Ensure that your In-Sight machine vision systems are able to communicate with the robots in your plant with Cognex Connect. The software comes packaged with ready-to-use template, pre-configured drivers, and sample code for use with robots by Denso, ABB, Fanuc, Kuka, Kawasaki, Staubli, and Motoman. Also supported is communications with robots by Adept, Epson, Mitsubishi, and many others.

Any PC or HMI

With every In-Sight system comes support for the standard TCP/IP Ethernet protocols as well as point-and-click configuration options that makes the system easy to integrate with your existing hardware. The In-Sight system can be set up from a PC on the network and be set up to archive images and data onto the file server.

For integrating interactive controls, quality data, and inspection images into your operator interface, a full site of visualization options is available with Cognex Connect:

With the In-Sight Display Control, you can embed In-Sight images and CustomView display into your ActiveX or .NET custom applications, or HMI/SCADA system from Citect, Rockwell, WonderWare, and others. Windows CE is not supported with this option.

With In-Sight OPC Server, you can uplink the In-Sight data to your SPC systems, HMI displays, and plant supervisory systems—you can even use Microsoft Excel to monitor the operations and record data.

In-Sight SDK lets systems integrators create custom user interfaces so that your In-Sight vision system is tailored to your specific production needs.

You shouldn’t have to learn a new automation system or change your existing equipment to integrate a machine vision system, and with Cognex Connect and In-Sight, you won’t have to. Combining the two, you get a system that provides high performance vision technology and that is seamlessly integrated with the equipment you already have in place.
