Accommodate the fastest line speeds and optimize throughput

Lead with speed. With twice the processing power of previous vision systems, the In-Sight 3800 offers ultimate performance for any manufacturing application. Fast tool speeds keep pace with your operations, enabling you to increase throughput and get the most out of your automated solution.

Automate in minutes with edge learning technology

In-Sight 3800 is embedded with innovative edge learning tools that bring the power of AI to everyone. The tools allow beginners and experts alike to deploy reliable automation through simple, example-based training. Leveraging pre-trained algorithms, edge learning solves a variety of classification and text reading applications from presence/absence detection to multi-class sortation and advanced optical character reading.


Deploy proven rule-based tools for more advanced jobs

In addition to edge learning tools, In-Sight 3800 offers a comprehensive set of rule-based tools. The tools can be used individually or combined, giving users the ability to leverage the best of traditional, rule-based vision and AI technology. The rule-based tool set allows you to measure distance and blobs, count pixels and patterns, read codes, guide robots, perform math and logic, and more.


Meet higher quality standards with powerful image formation

Capture high-resolution images of any product in any environment. Multi-color lighting (RGBW and IR) optimizes image formation, maximizing contrast and illumination, regardless of operating conditions. Simply click a button in In-Sight Vision Suite to change the light color and generate high-resolution images for more accurate inspections.

Push the boundaries of HDR

High-dynamic range plus (HDR+) extends the capabilities of HDR technology by automatically enhancing contrast. This creates a more uniformed and more detailed image in a single acquisition, and allows you to see features that were not visible before. HDR+ also reduces exposure times, which enables you to accommodate faster line speeds.

Address a range of applications – from simple to complex – with flexible development options

In-Sight 3800 runs off of In-Sight Vision Suite software, which is common across all In-Sight products, and offers two development environments –EasyBuilder® and spreadsheet. The intuitive EasyBuilder interface is ideal for building simple or common jobs, while the robust spreadsheet interface is well-suited for building complex or highly customized applications.

Extensive toolset addresses tasks of varying complexity

In-Sight 3800 is embedded with a full suite of traditional and AI-based vision tools that solve a variety of error-proofing applications. This comprehensive library accommodates all skill levels by providing access to industry-proven, rule-based algorithms, such as Measure Distance, Measure Angle, Count Patterns and Math and Logic Tools, as well as innovative, easy-to-use ViDi EL tools. The tools can be used individually or combined, giving you the ability to leverage the best of both traditional, rule-based vision and edge learning technology.

Easy-to-use edge learning brings the power of AI to everyone

Edge learning is a subset of AI that uses a pre-trained set of algorithms to solve vision tasks in minutes. Training is simple, requiring as few as 5 to 10 example images with no advanced programming or AI expertise required. Powered by edge learning, ViDi EL tools help you automate and scale inspection applications. These innovative tools deliver fast processing speeds to increase throughput, keep pace with your operations, and deliver fast, reliable results in real-time.

ViDi EL Segment

The ViDi EL Segment tool allows users to segment images to extract particular regions for targeted inspection. The region can include any type of feature on a part that you want to identify, from unwanted defects to critical components. Users train the tool by marking the region(s) of interest on an image and assigning it a class. After training just a few sample images, the tool learns to reliably segment the right features, even with varied parts and complex backgrounds.

ViDi EL Classify

The ViDi EL Classify tool automatically identifies and sorts objects into classes based on user-defined features, characteristics, or defect types. Capable of discerning visually similar, but different objects, this tool enables you to classify defects into different categories and correctly identify parts with variation. Along with the ability to assign multiple classifications, you can set up multiple regions of interest to inspect different sections of your part.

ViDi EL Read

The ViDi EL Read tool deciphers a variety of text and font types using AI-based optical character recognition (OCR). It reads multi-line text, as well as characters against challenging backgrounds, including reflective, low-contrast, and non-flat surfaces. ViDi EL Read can also be quickly redeployed to handle new text and accommodate process variations. The tool offers two training modes to address character reading applications of varying complexity:

  • Pre-trained mode – allows you to read characters right out of the box for simple applications
  • User-trained mode – allows you to train characters to solve more complex applications
