New position tools and colored and lighting filters are now offered as upgrades to Cognex Corp.’s existing line of Checker 4G high-speed and high-resolution machine vision sensors—and come standard on its latest model, the 4G7X.

The Checker 4G series now supports pattern-based positioning for 360º rotation, which helps verify part location regardless of its position on the production line. Additional positioning tools have also been added to inspect cap height and skew, label position, fill level, web position and component placement.
 
Colored lighting and filter options, which create contrast where normal lighting can’t, produce more consistent and reliable inspections. Also included are features that remove glare from images with polished or reflective surfaces.
