About the IS5603-10


IS5603-10 is an In-Sight 5000 vision system made by Cognex in order to assist in the automation of inspection, measurement, and identification of industrial applications. The IS5603-10 features a 1/1.8- inch CCD type sensor, measuring at 8.8mm diagonal, 4.4 x 4.4μm sq. pixels. The maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels and frame rate of 14 full frames per second puts IS5603-10 at the higher end of resolution and lower end of frame rate among other In-Sight 5000 series vision systems. The frame rate can be increased by decreasing the amount of image sensor rows in the In-Sight Explorer software. The speed rating is 20 times faster than the baseline Micro Series models. 

I/O Compatibility

This system comes with 2 high-speed, integrated discrete outputs and no discrete inputs. However, the CIO-1400, CIO-MICRO, and CIO-MICRO-CC I/O modules are all compatible with this model and can allow for additional inputs and outputs. It also comes with 5 status LEDs, two of which are configurable by the user. 


This model is supported by In-Sight firmware versions 4.4.3 up to, but not including, 5.1.0. Please consult the In-Sight 5000 Series Vision System Reference Guide for any further information about specifications, installation instructions, or maintenance details about IS5603-10 or other In-Sight 5000 Series Vision Systems.

Reviews For IS5603-10

Internal Review

The IS5603-10's high resolution can be useful for gathering more detailed imagery from the factory floor. The tradeoff in frame rate can be mitigated somewhat by removing some image sensor rows via the associated software. - AX Control Lead Technician
