The In-Sight® Laser Profiler is a measurement system used to verify dimensionality for gauging, inspection, and ID applications. The In-Sight laser profiler is configured using the In-Sight EasyBuilder® user interface, making it simple for manufacturing and quality engineers to develop, deploy, and support accurate and reliable measurements on the factory floor. The In-Sight laser profiler system combines Cognex displacement sensor heads, the In-Sight VC200 vision controller, and industry-leading algorithms to extract profiles, perform highly accurate measurements and analyze results.
The In-Sight Laser Profiler is up and running in just 4 easy steps:
1. Acquire Profile—With a click of a button, profile optimization technology renders the most accurate outline of your part.
2. Locate Object—Sophisticated object detection technology minimizes the need for costly fixturing and ensures measurements are performed in the correct location.
3. Measure—Flexible In-Sight laser profiler toolset extracts features, constructs reference points, counts key features, and verifies whether a product has been manufactured within tolerance.
4. Communicate Results—Measurements are sent to a PLC or an overall pass/fail is sent directly to a discrete output. Profiles and measurements can be stored on a controller for downstream analysis or quality control logging.
The In-Sight laser profiler offers mobile, platform-independent visualization for accessing HMIs (human machine interfaces) from anywhere on the network. An HTML-based user interface allows users to monitor production line activity from any laptop, tablet, smart phone or other mobile device.
