Vision Sensor

April 1, 2009

Cognex Corporation has added the Checker 3G series to its award-winning Checker vision sensor product line. With simple setup, integrated part detection, lighting, I/O and job change all in a rugged IP67 housing, Checker 3G is an easy, reliable and affordable way to verify all products or parts on the line.

With Checker 3G, the user chooses whether to configure the sensor as a presence sensor or measurement sensor. Presence sensors verify that features are present. Measurement sensors verify that features are the correct height, width and/or diameter. In either mode, there is no limit to the number of part features that a single checker can check. Checker is also able to detect and track over 6000 ppm in varying positions along the production line, overcoming imprecise part positioning and delivering consistent, precisely timed pass/fail results. No other sensor, vision sensor or vision system can do this.

The new Cognex offering does not require a PC for setup. Instead, the SensorView Teach Pendant, with its unique One-Click Setup technology, allows the user to set up jobs right on the line and has them running in a matter of minutes. A single teach pendant can be used to set up any number of Checker 3G sensors and can remain connected for real-time application monitoring.
