A call to the StartContinuous method will cause a transition into state ContinuousExecution, where the system will continuously acquire and process data.

This state models the behavior of systems like textile inspection systeme, package sorting machines, monitoring and surveillance systems, which do not expect start commands for individual work pieces but constantly acquire and process data.

The system may go back to the Ready state, automatically due to internal conditions, or by calling the Abort or Stop methods.
