Calibrated 3D Vision from Cognex

Cognex 3D displacement sensors optimize product quality by providing three-dimensional inspection of your products. The sensors are factory calibrated and include industry-leading Cognex machine vision software with powerful 2D and 3D toolsets and a compact, IP65-rated design that withstands even the harshest factory environments. Combined with unique field calibration technology Cognex 3D vision provides the highest accuracy data despite mechanical mounting or motion errors, as well as enabling the simultaneous use of multiple sensors on wide production lines to generate single high resolution 3D images.
