What Does the Vision Archive do?

Vision Archive acts as a central point for storing and retrieving images and data from your machine vision systems.

Compatible with a range of Omron vision systems, but optimised for integration with the FH series.

Can be used for a single camera, a single controller with multiple cameras, or multiple controllers.

Capable of storing not just the images, but also extra camera data (code, measurements) and PLC data (batch number, product type).

The combined image + camera data + PLC data makes it possible to search and filter the results, so you can quickly find the results you’re looking for.

What does Vision Archive collect?

Camera Images

The raw photos taken by the cameras are collected. These can be browsed inside Vision Archive, or exported back out to run through the FH Simulator & NG Analyser for example.

Vision System Data

This is the application specific data that the vision system produces after analysing the image, such as product type, pass/fail, critical dimensions or measurements, FH scene group and number, timestamp.

PLC Data

Often the PLC has relevant information that the vision system doesn’t contain, such as a batch number, product settings, run rate.

Inserts a sample reference image for each grouping.

Save the report as a PDF, save it as a raw image, print it off or email it directly from Vision Archive.

Key Considerations:

  • Do you visually inspect your units as part of quality assurance?
  • Would a visual image of every unit help your troubleshooting?
  • Would more detailed production reporting help your management decisions?
