Cognex Corp. released two new products — the Advantage 100 vision system and the AE2 Advantage engine — designed for integration into original equipment manufacturer (OEM) devices and equipment. The Advantage 100 vision system is a compact (23 mm by 44 mm by 54 mm) enclosed vision system with customizable optics, lighting and Ethernet communications suitable for integration into large, automated clinical diagnostic systems, it says. The AE2 Advantage vision engine provides a smaller (14.5 mm by 29.1 mm by 20.5 mm) form factor designed for tight integration inside the enclosure of OEM devices, it says. Both systems offer Cognex vision, alignment and code reading technologies in a product that can be held on the tip of a finger, it adds.
