The numerical designation is for a piece of internal equipment used in the Cognex In-Sight 8000 series of assembly production line cameras. A part that’s used across all five models of the In-Sight 8000 lineup, the 8200, the 8400, the 8401, and the 8405.
The 8200, 8400, 8401, and 8402 has the In-Sight firmware version of 5.2.0, while the 8405 has the 5.1.1 version. Each model has 512 megabytes of memory for job and program processing, and another 512 MB for image processing, converted into SDRAM. The first four models have an 1/1.8 inch CMOS, with a global shutter, and the 8405 has a slightly larger CMOS, with a rolling shutter.
Across all the models, their image resolution and frame rates ranges in their maximum resolutions, with the 8200 and 8400 models having 640 by 480 pixels at 217 full frames per second, and the 8401 having 1280 by 1024 and 76 fps, the 8402 with 1600 by 1200 and 53 fps, and then the 8405 having the sharpest at 2592 by 1944, but 10 fps.
The standard lens type across all of these models requires a C Mount, and has built in I/O trigger ports, with 1 opto-isolated acquisition EtherNet port, no discrete general use inputs, and 4 general use outputs. The Cognex CIO-1400 I/O extension module allows an addition set of 8 I/O ports each.
The first four models maintain the same physical dimensions, being 31 millimeters by 31.2 mm by 75.1 mm, and weighing 132.2 grams. The 8405 is lighter and smaller, with dimensions of 31 mm by 31.2 mm by 71.6 mm, and only 78 g.
