The In-Sight Micro Vision System ISM1400-10 was produced to operate in settings where a network-ready, stand-alone, and compact unit is required. The In-Sight Vision Systems were first introduced to the market in 2010 since then the models have only progressed in their function. One main feature associated with this unit is that it is not only compact as previously mentioned but self-contained as well which means that no other cameras or external processors are required when the system is being operated.
The ISM1400-10 model is made up of extremely rugged industrial-grade housing, some models produced by Cognex are made up of stainless steel but the ISM1400-10 model is not one of those nor is it offered in stainless steel, but the die-cast aluminum this model is made up of still makes this specific unit incredibly durable.
While this unit is not one of the models equipped with a color tool it does feature the PatMax feature which is an extension of the extended toolset. The two main features associated with the extended toolset on the ISM1400-10 model are the caliper tool and the non-linear calibration. The non-linear calibration associated with this vision system is extremely precise pick-and-place for off-axis and standard mounting due to the constraints of robot motion or space. It can also be used in applications where highly accurate measurements and dimensions are required pertaining to medical devices.
All of the above information regarding this unit can be found in Cognex publications, the main publication used regarding this unit is the In-Sight Vision System 2010 Product Guide. Another key publication associated with this model is the Cognex In-Sight Micro Series Vision System Installation Manual. It is best and highly recommended to use manuals that were most recently published to ensure all information regarding the installation is accurate and highly reliable.
