Cognex, a specialist in industrial machine vision, has created a platform that provides barcode reading performance monitoring to prevent downtime.
After installation, Cognex’s EI software begins to collect device data and displays the results in visual dashboards. Customers can use this data to analyse performance trends, monitor configuration changes, and capture no-read and failed validation images for further analysis.
The platform can monitor multiple devices and lines within a single site as well as deploy configurations and firmware updates simultaneously to a number of connected devices. It also includes audit trail capabilities that track and report any changes to device settings and connectivity features for integration with other Industry 4.0 technologies.
Carl Gerst, Executive VP, Products and Platforms at Cognex said: “Cognex’s machine vision tools and barcode reading systems produce insight-rich data across manufacturing and logistics facilities.
“With EI’s powerful visualisation and diagnostics tools, our customers can now use that data to identify performance issues and take corrective action faster.”
Cognex will be showcasing its latest technologies this July at the leading warehousing and intralogistics show; IntraLogisteX.
