Cognex In-Sight EasyBuilder and Spreadsheets

In-Sight® EasyBuilder® and Spreadsheets Standard class teaches the basics of how to configure a vision application using the EasyBuilder and spreadsheet configuration environment and user interface. This class features two days of standard EasyBuilder topics and two days of standard spreadsheets topics.

This class gives new In-Sight users an overview of the In-Sight hardware and In-Sight Explorer software. Using the EasyBuilder interface you will create a vision application from start to finish following a simple step by step process. Applications can be solved quickly and effectively without the need for programming. The spread sheet interface, while less intuitive, offers more power and flexibility for more difficult applications and customized logic for inspection results.
