Update for uniVision software

February 2021 System Integration & Control Systems Design

Wengor has added another version update for the uniVision configurable standard software for two- and three-dimensional image processing. The latest update enables quick and easy integration of smart cameras and control units in EtherNet/IP controls. New overlays in the web-based visualisation of results are another attractive feature of the update.

A Profinet interface, one of the most commonly used industrial protocols in the world, makes Wenglor’s hardware and software technologies available to even more users.

Results of image and profile evaluations, such as measured values, detection of patterns or codes, can be transmitted from the smart camera or control unit in real time. However, it is also possible to send trigger or project-load commands and, for example, transmit a match code from the control to uniVision products. This makes seamless communication between the sensor, software and control even easier. In addition to Profinet and EtherNet/IP real-time protocols, process data can still be output via digital IOs, TCP/IP or UDP.

Web-based visualisation allows the results to be displayed on any device in a browser. This gives users a clear overview of all relevant results without the need for complex programming knowledge. Until now, users were only able to display points and lines within the image or profile. The new update also offers the option of displaying circles, arcs and coordinated systems and overlays. This increases the scope of visualisation functions even further and makes it even easier for users to monitor all results at a glance.

The standard software of uniVision enables the analysis of images and height profiles in the field of industrial image processing. Two- and three-dimentional data from smart cameras, vision systems and control units with 2D/3D profile sensors can also be evaluated. The software is intuitive and clearly structured like a toolbox. Up to 25 different software modules are available in total, such as measurement, threshold value, cluster, OCR, pattern matching, tracking as well as different templates, e.g. to read 1D codes, check presence, detect patterns or colours, depending on the hardware selected.
