7 ObjectTypes for the Vision System in General ToC Previous Next

7.8 RecipeFolderType ToC Previous Next

This ObjectType is a subtype of the FolderType and is used to organize the recipes of a vision system. Figure 15 shows the hierarchical structure and details of the composition. It is formally defined in Table 63.

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

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