Natick, MA-Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ - CGNX), the world's leading supplier of machine vision systems and vision sensors announced the In-Sight® 5400S, a stainless steel vision sensor suitable for the toughest environments. The In-Sight 5400S is an industrial-grade vision sensor that meets IEC specifications for shock and vibration, and achieves an IP68/NEMA 6P rating that stands up to chemical wash down and submersion.
“The In-Sight 5400S provides protection from harsh manufacturing environments without the added cost and complexity of an accessory enclosure,” said Kris Nelson, Cognex Senior VP, Vision Sensors. “The powerful combination of performance and ruggedness makes the 5400S ideal for food, beverage, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical applications.
The In-Sight 5400S can be used to sort objects, detect proper fill levels, inspect labels, caps and safety seals, verify label text, date and lot codes, read linear and 2D codes, and count and verify products in cartons. As with other In-Sight 5000 Series vision sensors, the In-Sight 5400S includes a powerful library of vision software, as well as built-in Ethernet communications and In-Sight Explorer software with advanced tools to simplify application development and network administration. PatMax®, the industry’s performance standard for feature and object location, is available as an option.
The In-Sight 5400S will be available in November.
