Cognex Announces Free Trial Software for Checker Sensor
Natick, MA, June 21, 2005-Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ - CGNX), the
world's leading supplier of machine vision systems, today
announced the availability of free CheckerTM trial software that
can be downloaded with the latest Checker version 1.3 release.
The trial software lets anyone experience the power and
simplicity of Checker.

Checker is a simple-to-use and inexpensive sensor that can detect
the presence of parts and part features, and recognize patterns.
Checker eliminates the wiring and mounting complexity of multiple
photoelectric sensors. Additionally, Checker does not require the
precise part fixturing or positioning that photoelectric sensors
require. Checker's all-in-one, IP67 design is suitable for all
industrial environments. Users simply power up the unit, connect
the USB cable to a PC, and follow a simple setup procedure to be
up and running in minutes.

In addition to the trial software, the latest Checker release
features many product enhancements. Checker now allows for
offline setup, without a Checker attached to the PC. Users can
record high-speed video from their production lines, and then set
up a Checker job without ever having to stop the line. Checker
can also switch between 16 different sensor setups on the fly for
automatic line changeovers. New "Train and Go" capability lets
Checker learn new features to detect without having to connect to
a PC. And Checker now works on very large parts.

see for yourself why manufacturers are rapidly adopting Checker
in a wide range of automotive, consumer products, food, beverage,
general production and assembly applications.
