Cognex Edge Intelligence Features
Machine vision tools and barcode reading systems produce a lot of insight-rich data across manufacturing and logistics facilities. The expansion of Industry 4.0 through the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) focuses on improving operations by collecting and analyzing data in an efficient way like at “the edge” of the production line as opposed to sending data to the cloud and back. The Cognex Edge Intelligence (EI) platform transforms big data into smart data and provides real-time system performance monitoring and device management to improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and throughput.
Configure devices and collect data in minutes
EI device setup is fast and simple for both new and existing automation lines, preventing downtime and boosting productivity for your operation. Easily connect to the EI platform through any web browser to start collecting data right away. Additionally, users can configure and manage several devices at once.
Take swift action on performance information
EI collects and analyzes performance trends, monitors configuration changes, and captures no-read and failed validation images for further review. With EI’s powerful visualization dashboards, you can identify issues earlier and take corrective action faster.
Securely store and share data
Securely gather results and image data from Cognex devices and store them on the EI hardware. EI can also securely forward this data to industrial control and data systems.
