Again, we can’t emphasize enough that we make products that work and are easy for you to use.  We don’t want you to struggle when deploying, managing, maintaining or upgrading vision and ID products. That is why our team developed  the Cognex Explorer™ control center. Talk about making things efficient and easy!

This utility helps with everyday maintenance tasks but it’s so much more. It’s a single window into the status, identity, settings, etc. of all of your Cognex In-Sight vision systems, DataMan ID readers and VisionView display devices. One stop shopping! As long as your systems are all connected to your Ethernet network, Cognex Explorer is the one place for you to execute firmware updates, perform backups, restore and clone systems, add licenses and keys. I can’t even tell you how much you’ll value this utility and its easy-to-use graphical interface. Oh, and did I mention that it’s free? Yes, as I said earlier, I am so happy that we are able to give this peace of mind to our current customers, free of charge.  Feel free to learn more or download the software from www.cognex.com/explorer.
