The EyeVision 3 machine vision software is now even more flexible. No matter if it is Halcon, Open CV or the Euresys library, with the new plugin concept third party software can be integrated into the EyeVision software lib.
Especially with the new SDK for plugin development, it is getting much easier to integrate evaluation routines into the EyeVision. This is possible through all platforms, which are supported by the EyeVision softwaer, such as x86 Windows, or Linux as well as ARM based Linux systems.
With the GUI designer and only a few mouse clicks the user can open their own routines or now also the library routines of a third party maker, without special programming skills.
Therefore the evaluation routines of the user are immediately available for the infrastrukture of the EyeVision software. Reaching from the image capture command via the IO management up to the flexible data management.
Also the integration into stadard communication components allows therefore the evaluation, in use cases of Industry 4.0, by integrating it easily into SCADA and PLC systems. This means for example that the OPC standard can use the EyeVision software as an OPC server. With that the accumulated data (measurement data, position, etc.) can be sent to a client. The user can decide with which standard interfaces of the e.g. smart camera (RS232, Ethernet), the data should be sent to the OPC client. Therefore the requirements for the integration into SCADA are met.
Additionally, the new Webshop from EVT makes it possible to offer plugins directly also to other EyeVision software users.
