Vision sensors solve simple inspection applications, are easy to use, fast and provide a simple pass/fail or go/no-go result.
At speeds up to 6,000 parts per minute, Cognex Checker® vision sensors detect a part for inspection by finding an actual part feature. Photoelectric sensors cannot do this. Once a vision sensor detects a part, it uses vision tools to perform defect detection and inspection applications. These vision tools can detect and inspect even the most challenging part features such as clear objects, printed text, and dimension. Photoelectric sensors simply cannot perform these applications.
