2D iRVision conveyor tracking, common question

  • Hello,


    How often camera triggering to prevent catching half parts in FoV? And in case camera triggering more that each conveyor frame, then how Fanuc recognize that system has duplicates?


    Thanks in advance!


    Regards,

  • Hi
    First of all, you should do the triggering based on common sense. Dont trigger once a minute and miss 95 % of the parts and dont trigger every millisecond to avoid heating up the CPU :uglyhammer2:


    Once you establish a good relation between parts on the FOV and triggering, don't worry, Fanuc will recognized the part. The software will "understand" that this "new" part is the same part that was xxx milliseconds ago when the conveyor was zzzz millimeters behind.

    Fabian,
    Sounds good. I know how to set iRVision and Fanuc conveyor tracking but information how Fanuc resolve duplicate issue fly out of my head. I think the best way to do trigger the camera every 50%-75% of FoV(depends on conveyor speed and couple more things). For now I ifghting with Denso conveyor tracking system with 2 robots on same line and can't understand why they do not have possibility to exclude duplicates. That's why I love Fanuc!
