Metal Casting Technologies : March 2005
42 METAL Casting Technologies March 2005 PRODUCTS Colour And High-Resolution Industrial-Grade Vision Sensors Cognex Australasia has added the In-Sight 5100C colour vision sensor and the In-Sight 5101 high-resolution model to its 5000 Series of industrial-grade vision sensors. The In-Sight 5100C is designed to perform a wide range of colour inspection tasks in a number of major industries. It can be used in the automotive industry to identify motor camshafts by colour and gauge applications in automotive and other general assembly applications that require increased resolution for inspecting small objects, or capturing images of larger parts. The industrial-grade vision sensors meet IEC specifications for shock and vibration, and achieve an IP67 (NEMA 6) rating for dust and wash-down protection - without the need for a separate industrial enclosure.
