7 ObjectTypes for the Vision System in General ToC Previous Next

7.9 ProductFolderType ToC Previous Next

This ObjectType is a subtype of the FolderType and is used to organize the products of a vision system. Figure 16 shows the hierarchical structure and details of the composition. It is formally defined in Table 64.

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

Note that the folder contains only metadata of the products, not the actual product data of the vision system.
