In-Sight Explorer Software Features
Ease-of-use is built into the heart of In-Sight vision systems starting with easy to use but powerful vision tools and In-Sight Explorer software interface. A spreadsheet view makes the user experience very simple for maximum control over your optical inspection applications. The In-Sight Explorer software also includes an EasyBuilder configuration environment for deploying reliable applications quickly, with no programming required.
Intuitive, Easy to Use
EasyBuilder configuration software helps users of all experience levels to quickly setup their application—no programming knowledge required. This easy-to-use interface walks you through the process of setting up your vision application, step by step.
Working from an image of the part, four simple steps complete the application setup:
- Start – Find an In-Sight vision system on the network, then be guided through triggering the vision system and setting up scale and nonlinear calibrations.
- Set up tools – After finding the part, a library of more than 22 vision tools is available to inspect the part.
- Configure – A point-and-click communications setup provides easy selection of data to be sent, and the protocol to use for communicating to a PLC, robot, or HMI for data collection and archiving results.
- Finish – In the deployment mode, colorful tool graphics, a results table, and a filmstrip control to review images simplify troubleshooting the application and identifying bad parts.
Setup your own applications to ensure a low cost of ownership
The In-Sight Explorer spreadsheet view provides a robust, flexible and efficient way to configure the vision tools and handle the data created from a vision application. The In-Sight spreadsheet includes specialized functions, options and operations that allow you to solve complex applications without ever writing a line of code.
Ease-of-use for fast deployment
A spreadsheet view of the In-Sight Explorer software interface makes the user experience very satisfying. Drag and drop vision tools and graphics palette along with menu-driven tool property sheets makes job configuration simple. The In-Sight Explorer software also includes an EasyBuilder environment. With no programming needed, applications are deployed quickly.
In addition to Easy Builder, In-Sight Explorer offers a more powerful Microsoft Excel-like environment for configuring more advanced applications. You can take advantage of the EasyBuilder configuration platform along with the power of the spreadsheet view with the flexibility of round tripping back and forth.
Refine, test and verify inspection systems automatically
TestRun provides a simple method to ensure that their inspection settings are set appropriately. Analyzing parameter changes against a user defined library of good and bad parts, TestRun identifies parameters that are out of range.
Who benefits from the TestRun validation application?
Machine operators can easily and automatically test the vision system to verify that it is functioning correctly
Application designers and integrators can quickly demonstrate that the vision system meets the acceptance criteria
Quality managers can refine pass/fail criteria based on real production images
Flexible display options The VisionView operator interface is ideal for monitoring and controlling In-Sight vision systems and Ethernet-enabled DataMan industrial ID readers on the factory floor, and allows operator controls specific to the application. The VisionView application software is available on four platforms for flexible visual inspection.
Customized Visualization and Control
In-Sight Explorer CustomView
Graphical controls such as indicator lights, buttons, data displays and entries, trend charts and message boxes are used to create the operator display.
In-Sight Software Development Kit (SDK)
This package provides the ultimate level of flexibility for .NET and ActiveX environments via programmatic methods for viewing data and images, changing parameters, and loading new jobs or recipes.
In-Sight ActiveX Display Control
Tested with the most common HMI software packages, you can integrate data and images into the rest of the machine control with drag-and-drop simplicity.
Inspect for assembly errors, surface defects, damaged parts and missing features. Identify the orientation, shape and position of objects and features.
Gauge parts to check critical dimensions and/or measure components for sorting and classification processes.
Guide automation equipment and robotic devices. Align parts for high accuracy assembly operations
Read and verify alphanumeric characters marked directly on parts and printed on labels.
Read 1D barcodes and 2D matrix codes as part of an overall inspection.
