VisionGauge® OnLine version 12.52 is available for download.

 

VisionGauge® OnLine version 12.52, dated August 10th, 2017, is available for download.

This update includes the following enhancements:


– The VisionGauge® OnLine Status Box can now be displayed as a floating pop-out window, instead of docked at the bottom of the screen. This allows more vertical space for image display with less cropping on certain systems. The pop-out status box window still receives all program output and measurement results, and it is scrollable up to 5000 lines. Users have the option to save the contents of the Status Box window to a text file or clear the status box to focus only on new results.

To enable the pop-out status box option, access the “Customize – User Interface” menu and select “Display Status Box in a separate window”. Having the status box pop-out window active will also enable a new “Status Box” button on the right side of the screen which opens and closes the window. Data will still be collected in the status box even if it is closed.

– We’ve added the ability to “Cutout an image portion” in the Program Toolbox’s Image Manipulation tool. Simply specify the Region Of Interest, and also indicate if you want to be working on the raw image or the image with any and all annotations that you might have at runtime. This tool can be useful to automatically save a smaller portion of an image during a program, which reduces the image size. This can make it easier, for example, to email or to bring focus to a specific area of interest in the image.

VisionGauge® OnLine version 12.38 is available for download

VisionGauge® OnLine version 12.38, dated July 11th 2017, is available for download.

This update includes the following enhancements:


– VisionGauge® Online can now send Pass/Fail results in Character String and Pass/Fail Data Group types to ProLink. Previously only Numerical Data Groups were supported in sending results to ProLink. Please note that no tolerance information sent (this can be set directly in ProLink, if needed), and the results will appear as Pass with a value of 1 and Fail with a value of 0.

 

– In the “Program Toolbox – Statistics” step settings, users now have the option to modify the DDE-to-Excel settings for a specific data group. This allows for more advanced reporting capabilities to Excel during the operation of a program.

– In the “Program Toolbox – Motion Control” step, when “Set Position” is selected as the operation, users may now choose if setting the new stage position will affect the positions of existing datums. This option has no effect on datums that are created or overwritten after the “Set” operation.

VisionGauge® OnLine version 12.32 is available for download

VisionGauge® OnLine version 12.32, dated June 27th 2017, is available for download.

This update includes the following enhancements:


– When the Settings Toolbox “Apply Motion Control Parameters” button is checked when setting the parameters, the current motion control convergence criteria (for all of the axes) is also saved (along with the velocities, etc…). Then, when that button is pressed, the current motion control convergence criteria is set to the ones that were saved…

– The maximum number of datums has been increased to 500.

 

– String variables have been increased in length. Each string variable can now hold up to 256 characters

 

– The Program Toolbox – “Text String” step operation can now output the date and time to a Character String Data Group during a program.

 

– VisionGauge Online now outputs the tolerances specified for a measurement to ProLink. Also, a “Source” and “Extra” field are able to be output for each measurement. The Source field is usually used as a ‘machine source’ fixed id, and the Extra field can be used for additional data about the measurement. Numerical variables, string variables, or a user-specified fixed string can be selected as the content for these fields in the main menu “Customize – Data Transfer – Prolink” menu item.

– We’ve carried out some enhancements to the “Presence Verification” mode of the software’s CAD Auto Pass/Fail tool to improve performance.
