SurfaceFX (Surface Feature Extract) is a product that utilizes an algorithm which highlights surface features regardless of whether they are engraved, etched, embossed, dented, punctured, stamped, or raised. Once contrast is created in the image, Cognex's industry leading vision tools (OCRMax, PatMax RedLine, Blobs, InspectEdge, etc.) can easily inspect the part.
SurfaceFX utilizes a 4-segment quadrant controlled light and a Cognex IS8000 or IS5705 Series camera. It uses reflections and shadows from the different angled lights to determine the surface structure. The Cognex algorithm combines images from different light sources to create the resulting image.
In-Sight 2000 series vision sensors includes an integrated, high-performance image formation system consisting of field interchangeable lenses and a patent-pending LED ring light that produces even, diffuse illumination across the entire image and eliminates the need for costly external lighting. Lenses and a variety of colored lights can be easily swapped out as needed to meet application requirements.
Together with the In-Sight Explorer EasyBuilder® interface, which provides a fast, step-by-step application setup, the In-Sight 2000 series allows even novice users to achieve extremely reliable inspection performance in nearly any production environment. In-Sight 2000 series vision sensors can also be configured for in-line and right-angle mounting installation.

Anybus Bolt wireless connector gives a machine or cabinet wireless access via Bluetooth® or Wireless LAN (WLAN). Anybus Wireless Bolt enables you to connect industrial devices to a wireless network. It is attached onto a cabinet or a machine to enable wireless access. Wireless transmission is made via Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy or WLAN technology.
The Wireless Bolt is IP65-rated and has a max range of 100 meters. It can communicate with devices using Ethernet, Serial (RS232/485) or CAN. Regardless of communication method, you have the same connector (2x9p;3,5 Plug Connector) for both power and communication.
New Pro-face GP4100T Color Compact HMI comes with Ethernet or Serial Port options. This compact operator interface series offers a crisp, clear and bright, LCD Display, available in monochrome or color with Analog Touch Panel for improved visibility and precise part placement. The monochrome option comes equipped with energy efficient, maintenance free Green/Orange/Red or White/Pink/Red LED backlights.
The deTec4 Core is an electro-sensitive protective device that complies with performance level “e” in accordance with EN ISO 13849 as well as SIL3 in accordance with IEC 61508.
The new design is not only extremely robust but also space saving. Whether resolutions of 14 mm or 30 mm – blind zones belong to the past, thanks also to the new type of cable outlet. Starting out with 300 mm, one can select protective field heights in 150-mm increments.
