The vendor has also introduced an industrial vision controller and new 3D vision tools. The DS1050, DS1101 and DS1300 address a broad variety of 3D applications that require high resolution and expanded measurement range. The DS1000 series now comes bundled with the new Cognex VC5 vision controller for up to four 3D sensors. It comes pre-installed with Cognex Designer, a software framework that simplifies the development of 3D applications and creation of a graphical user interface. The DS1000 Series also now offers such tools as 3D height, plane fitting, plane-to-plane angle, volume and cross-section. The series uses laser triangulation to extract 3D information from the parts it scans.
