In-Sight 2000 Mini Vision Sensor Features
The compact size of the Cognex In-Sight 2000 Mini expands the number of potential application for vision sensors and allows users to deploy vision sensors into more areas of their operation. In-Sight 2000 Mini models are 68% smaller by volume than standard In-Sight 2000 vision sensors, so they can fit into tight spaces. In-Sight 2000 Mini models also come standard with a liquid lens autofocus module, enabling faster job changeovers and the ability to change focus when the sensor is mounted in inaccessible places. Key features include:
- Ultra-compact integrated light module
- Autofocus powered by liquid lens technology
- 4 cross polarized and co-linear polarized LEDs
- Ideal for machines with limited mounting space
Integrated light optimizes image formation
A small but powerful light module provides integrated lighting, making it ideal for close-range applications and extremely space-restricted machines. This also removes the need for costly external lighting. Lenses and lighting are field-interchangeable to adjust to different application requirements.
Autofocus technology adjusts to varying part heights
An autofocus module powered by liquid lens technology automatically focuses to preset positions, eliminating the need to manually refocus the lens or physically move the camera sensor during changeovers or job set up. This allows the sensor to be used on lines with frequent line changeovers and variable part heights.
Powerful vision tools solve a wide range of applications
Proven In-Sight vision tools – including pattern, pixel count, brightness, contrast, and edge tools – solve simple location, presence/absence, measurement, and counting applications. When increased functionality or capability is required, Cognex offers models with toolsets that include image filters, OCR, blob, and numeric data output and models with resolution up to 1280 x 960 (1.2MP). The In-Sight 2000 Mini vision sensor can inspect multiple targets within a single image, as well as perform multiple inspection types relying on different tools.
EasyBuilder software simplifies setup and deployment
Even novice users can achieve reliable inspection performance using EasyBuilder’s simple, intuitive interface—the same one used in all In-Sight vision systems. For more complex pass/fail and go/no-go inspections, users can build on their experience to create vision applications using more advanced In-Sight vision systems in the same In-Sight Explorer interface.
Modular design adapts to changing application requirements
The In-Sight 2000 Mini features a modular design with field changeable lights, lenses, filters and covers that make it easy to choose the correct configuration for your work cell. A modular body design provides:
- Maximum flexibility to mount in tight spaces
- Simplifies wiring and optical paths
- Minimizes the need to design new mechanical fixtures
Available in both monochrome and color image models and with different combinations of vision tools, the In-Sight 2000 Mini lets you choose the level of capability you need. Whatever your inspection application, there’s an In-Sight 2000 Mini vision sensor model that’s right for the job.

In-Sight 2000 Vision Sensor Software
Technology and application requirements for automated inspections are constantly evolving. This standardized environment is used to configure and maintain all machine vision applications, including for advanced In-Sight vision systems. The In-Sight 2000 offers a standardized set-up environment, powerful vision technology, and a reliable communications link that make it easy to configure applications and connect to other factory automation equipment.
Fast, Intuitive Set-Up with EasyBuilder
All In-Sight 2000 vision sensors use In-Sight Explorer EasyBuilder to set up and monitor machine vision inspections. The intuitive, point-and-click interface guides users through a step-by-step setup process for easy application development. With EasyBuilder, even novice vision users can easily set up, configure, and install a vision sensor. The TestRun validation utility for In-Sight Explorer helps ensure that the reliability of inspections won’t change, even when conditions do, by monitoring whether programming changes have affected the system.
Powerful location, presence/absence, measurement, and counting tools can be configured directly within the EasyBuilder interface, making it easy to set up and solve pass/fail and go/no go inspections.
Trusted Vision Tools
Cognex’s pattern, pixel count, brightness, contrast, and edge tools enable the In-Sight 2000 to perform advanced presence/absence, measurement, and counting applications. Using these tools, the In-Sight 2000 can inspect multiple targets within a single image, as well as perform multiple inspection types relying on different tools. Pattern, edge, and circle tools locate (or fixture) the part so other vision tools can use this as a reference to complete their inspections. The In-Sight 2000-230 models also include image filters, OCR, blob, and numeric data output.
Field interchangeable lighting, filters and optics deliver unmatched flexibility, making it easy to adapt to virtually any production line environment. Regardless of which powerful integrated light you need, the diffuse illumination technology provided by the In-Sight 2000 enables robust vision inspection anywhere you require it — without the need for costly external lighting.
Lighting & Lens Filters
A white LED ring light with diffuser cover is standard on most In-Sight 2000 models. Field interchangeable red, blue and IR ring lights and lens filters are also available.
An optional polarizer cover works with the white LED ring light to reduce undesirable reflections on shiny part surfaces. A clear cover is also available to increase image brightness in longer distance applications.
An 8 mm S-Mount/M12 lens is standard on most In-Sight 2000 models. Field interchangeable 3.6 mm, 6 mm, 12 mm, 16 mm, 25 mm S-Mount/M12 lens options are also available.
Multiple brackets and adapters are available for mounting an In-Sight 2000 vision sensor at nearly any point of inspection on the production line. And IP670-rated enclosure is also available for installation in washdown areas and other harsh environments
I/O and Cables
Network, power and I/O cables are available in several lengths. And when additional I/O is needed, the CIO-1400 I/O Expansion module extends the capabilities of In-Sight 2000 series vision sensors with 7 general purpose inputs and 8 outputs.
A compact, DIN-rail mount 24 volt DC power supply is available.
In-Sight 2000 Web-Based HMI
Cognex In-Sight 2000 vision sensors offer secure, mobile, platform independent visualization. A simple point-and-click interface allows customers to build interactive, web-based HMIs remotely accessible via a web browser over the network.
