For production managers, having the ability to quickly and easily back up, restore or clone systems and upgrade firmware on the production line is extremely important.

If you make adjustments to the settings and configurations of one installation, you should be able to duplicate these adjustments for other installations simply and easily. And you should be able to “roll back” your installations to previous settings if necessary.

Cognex Explorer Control Center simplifies these maintenance activities by helping you manage firmware upgrades, and keep systems up-to-date online.

The key aspect of Cognex Explorer is it acts as a common maintenance interface for Cognex vision systems and ID readers.

The Cognex Explorer Control Center  is really easy to use and requires no training or additional programming.  Simply download the software and start managing all of the Cognex devices on your network with this single, easy-to-use utility.
