SmartVIS Device Management
CG Controls SmartVIS is a software system offering the user a centralised view from which they can control and manage industrial vision inspection devices and peripherals in an automated and compliant environment.
Cognex InSight Management Software
SmartVIS is a .NET client application with a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 database backend for data storage. It can be deployed on a PC or workstation running Windows 7 or Windows 10. SQL Server can be installed locally on the client PC or reside on a customer server. Our intuitive Data Entry Designer allows users to build data entry forms and bind fields to various peripherals such as vision sensors and printers. Sending batch data to a wide range of Insight, Dataman and Printers on your production line becomes a safe and secure 1-click process.
Centralised and Integrated Software
Centralised multi-camera recipe management software with OPC UA integration for Programmable Logic Controllers (support for Allen Bradley and Siemens PLCs). Digital IO via Ethernet IO modules
Wide Range of Application Compatibility
Compatible with all Cognex InSight cameras. Installs in Europe and USA. Leverages the Cognex Insight SDK to automate Insight tasks such as job file loading, insight connection, online offline and job viewing.
