The Cognex IS5400-S10 is a vision system developed for the Insight 5000 series. This stainless steel device is capable of monitoring high speed automation operations with its 10 times speed rating. An integrated PatMax system further enhances the user experience with this module. PatMax systematically scans parts and uses a geometric pattern technology to locate them individually. This feature allows the user maximum vision yield and reliability. All images are captured in grayscale, with 256 distinguishable shades of gray. These images are processed by the 64 MB of photo memory. Additionally, 32 MB of flash memory storage are available for program and job space.
Clear images are produced with the IS5400-S10’s 640 x 480 pixel resolution. The module is capable of capturing up to 60 frames per second. A number of integrated system enhancements are highlighted on this device. Some of the included features are barcode verification, image filtering, and nonlinear calibration. One Ethernet and one 10/100 BaseT protocol provide networking communications hookups. External I/O can also interface with the device using the RS232C port.
Following provided storage and installation parameters will ensure that IS5400-S10 does not incur any environmental damages. As a temperature sensitive instrument, this device requires a controlled climate. When operating, temperatures can safely range as low as 32℉, or 0℃, and as high as 113℉, or 45℃. Even when not in use, extreme temperatures can still degrade the internal circuitries. Storage temperatures for this device can range from -22℉ to 176℉, or -30℃ to 80℃. Refer to the device manual and datasheet for a complete installation and safety guide. Technical support for this device was originally provided by the manufacturer, Cognex.
