Software adapter enables easy, fast integration of scanCONTROL laser profile sensors

New adapter from Micro-Epsilon enables easy integration of scanCONTROL laser profile sensors with Cognex VisionPro software

Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon says it has introduced a software adapter that enables easy, fast integration of the scanCONTROL series of laser profile sensors with Cognex VisionPro software via the Cognex AIK Server. 

Cognex VisionPro is designed to setup and deploy vision applications, regardless of the camera type or frame grabber. The software enables users to perform a wide range of functions, from geometric object location and inspection to identification, measurement, and alignment, as well as specialised functions specific to semiconductor and electronics applications.

Developed in cooperation with COGNEX, the free scanCONTROL AIK Adapter combines the advantages of Cognex VisionPro with the benefits of native scanCONTROL integration. Cognex integrators and Cognex VisionPro users can use the scanCONTROL AIK Adapter to generate Cognex Range Images from the scanCONTROL measuring points and process these conveniently within the VisionPro data evaluation algorithms. In addition, all known configuration options for scanCONTROL laser profile sensors are available to the user.

For a rapid start, the scanCONTROL AIK Adapter for Cognex VisionPro contains detailed documentation about all sensor settings and the necessary configuration steps in Cognex VisionPro. The scanCONTROL AIK Adapter is available as a free download from the Micro-Epsilon website, as well as a tutorial video that shows users how to quickly get connected and setup with the Cognex VisionPro software. The adapter supports all current scanCONTROL series: 25xx, 26xx, 29xx and 30xx.
