The image analysis
in Scorpion is performed by a toolbox of user configurable tools. You
find a rich variety of tools in Scorpion. These are image-processing
tools in addition to mathematical and logical tools. They are grouped
in six categories: Basic, Data, Geometry, Reference system, Edge and
Advanced tools. The tools
are rather simple, but put together they solve very complicate tasks.
The toolbox consists of an ordered sequence of tools with a name connected
to an image and an
optional reference system
The icon definition is as follows:
Blocked by guard or
or No result
- No license
- Manual Execution
- embedded python scripts
image analysing tool is used to make a calculation. When configuring a
vision system, you decide which tools to use and set their parameter
values. The parameters define the tool setup and are typically
coordinates, search areas (ROI - Region Of Interest), reference points,
min/max values, etc.
run, a tool generates a result given as one or more values in addition to
a set of graphical elements for visualisation. The measuring result is
used to define the measured objects state or status, which again decides
if an action, is to be taken. The visualisation elements are used to illustrate the
Scorpion measurement in the camera image. Each element is given a colour.
to the image analyses tools, there are other tools used to further process
the analyses results. Two tools of
importance are the logical and Python tools. The Logic tool classifies
results from a set of image analyses tools.
