Triggering Rules for Single Channel Devices

The SIMATIC HawkEye™ 1600T has a single acquisition channel. When a Job
is constructed, only one Acquire can run at a time. Table 1–3 summarizes the
recommended cases. Note that SIMATIC Visionscape® enforces this condition
by honoring the first Acquire requested and generating an overrun on any other
Acquire that are requested to run from the external controlling device (usually, an
external trigger or a PLC).
