In this chapter you will learn everything you need to know about Connections. With the help of Connections you can create the necessary connections to store and process your images.
1. Creating a Connection
Go to the Connections menu item and select it.
Click the + icon in the upper right corner to add a new connection.
A dialog box appears. Give the connection a label, assign it a connection family (Network, Docker, Cloud or Automation) and a connection type (FTP/SFTP, evoTrQ, IQPress, IO-Controller, Azure, S3 AWS or Snap7). Click Confirm to create your connection.
3. possible connections
Save images directly to an FTP server via an FTP connection. Specify all data under Configuration so that your server can be reached.
Connect the evoVIU camera to your evoTrQ part tracking system. To do this, simply enter the required URLs under Configuration.
Connect the evoVIU camera to your IQPress system. Simply enter the required data and URLs under Configuration.
Set the light mode for external light for the IO-Controller Connection. If your evoVIU has Docker, you can use pins 2 and 4 to control and synchronize external lights. Select Flash or Permanent as the light mode and set the flash time in milliseconds for the former.
Store your images on Microsoft’s cloud with Azure Connection. To do this, specify your domain, a container, and a valid token under Configuration.
Store your images on Amazon’s cloud with the S3 AWS Connection. To do this, enter your AWS Secret Access Key, your AWS Access Key ID, and the other data under Configuration.
Again, enter the missing data in the blanks to set up your Snap7 Connection.
