7 ObjectTypes for the Vision System in General ToC Previous Next

7.3 ConfigurationFolderType ToC Previous Next

This ObjectType is a subtype of the FolderType and is used to organize the configurations of a vision system. Figure 10 shows the hierarchical structure and details of the composition. It is formally defined in Table 24.

Instances of this ObjectType organize all available configurations of the vision system, which the server decides to expose in the Address Space. It may contain no configuration if no configuration is available, if the server does not expose configurations in the Address Space at all, or if no configuration matches the criteria of the server for exposure in the Address Space.

Note that the folder contains only metadata of the configurations, not the actual configuration data of the vision system.
