VIRTUAL - In-Sight Spreadsheet Installation and Operation-Virtual (Live Online)- 12/10/2021 8:30 AM

This 1-day In-Sight® Spreadsheet Installation and Operation course teaches students the essential skills of how to prepare a Cognex In-Sight system for production by learning to connect, maintaining, backup, restore, and troubleshoot their Cognex In-Sight vision system using the spreadsheet environment and user interface.

The In-Sight Spreadsheet Installation and Operation product class gives new In-Sight users an overview of the hardware and software used by In-Sight Vision Systems. With the focus on getting their system up and running out of the box and installed for the first time, users learn how to walk through the process of connecting and powering up their vision system, acquiring a good image for inspection, loading and maintaining jobs, and setting the appropriate tolerances through a typical user interface. Students will also learn about backing up their system and job files, restoring them, and troubleshooting the most common issues encountered in real-life production environments.



Recommended Audience
