Cognex announces new direct-connect industrial Camera Series

Cognex-cic30007 June 2013 - Cognex announced the Cognex Industrial Camera (CIC) series, a new line of GigE Vision digital industrial cameras designed for easy integration with VisionPro and CVL vision software. The first four models of the CIC series are compact (29mm x 29mm), monochrome, area scan cameras designed to address the most popular combinations of resolution, speed and pricing in the machine vision market. More models are planned for the future.

“Machine builders can now clearly show their customers that they have integrated industry-leading Cognex vision software into their machines, which provides a great competitive advantage,” said Joerg Kuechen, Vice President and Business Unit Manager for Cognex Vision Software. “Large enterprise users can also easily recognize the systems that utilize Cognex software by identifying the Cognex yellow industrial cameras on their line.”

Integration with VisionPro software provides access to a comprehensive library of patented computer vision tools—from geometric object location and inspection to identification and measurement algorithms. Combined with a flexible and powerful PC-based development interface, VisionPro software makes it easy to create and deploy solutions for the most challenging machine vision applications.

Cognex offers a three-year warranty for the CIC series of cameras as well as a hot swap program. These new Cognex Industrial Cameras are available now:

CIC-300: 640x480 resolution (VGA), 120 frames per second, CCD sensor, global shutter

CIC-2000: 1628x1236 resolution (2MP), 20 frames per second, CCD sensor, global shutter

CIC-4000: 2048x2048 resolution (4MP), 25 frames per second, CMOS sensor, global shutter

CIC-5000R: 2592x1944 resolution (5MP), 14 frames per second, CMOS sensor, rolling shutter
