  • Page 48: Application Details

    Application Details Settings such as trigger type, delay type, timeout, interval, burst length, exposure, and gain can be configured by using assistant functions that can help for configuring these settings. Trigger settings Trigger Assistant By selecting an application type, trigger options suitable for the application type can be checked and set using the trigger assistant function.
  • Page 49 Trigger Type • Single (external) Exposure and image acquisition are performed once per trigger. Additionally, this trigger mode supports for a timeout setting. • Continuous (external) Images are acquired at the specified image acquisition interval as long as the trigger signal remains active. The code reader stops receiving the trigger signal once a code is read.
  • Page 50 • Burst (external) Multiple images are acquired per trigger and the first symbol detected among the images is decoded. The number of image to be acquired and the interval between each image acquisition can be set. Additionally, this trigger mode supports a timeout setting. A timeout setting value is set to read for each acquired image, not for the whole burst.
  • Page 51 • Presentation (internal) Images are acquired and codes are read without external trigger inputs. Unlike the trigger type of "Self" which acquires images at equal intervals, the image acquisition interval varies depending on each code. This trigger mode does not support a timeout setting.
  • Page 52 Interval Assistant When "Self (internal)" or "Continuous (external)" is selected for a trigger type, the image acquisition interval can be calculated by using Interval Assistant. Select one of the application details to be input such as the field of view size, distance to code and code element size, and set the required values to calculate the interval.
  • Page 53: Exposure

    Exposure Exposure Assistant When an application type other than "Indexed, Stationary" is selected, the optimized exposure time can be set by using Exposure Assistant. Select one of the application details to be input such as the field of view size, distance to code, and code element size, and set the required values to calculate the exposure time.
  • Page 54 Maximum Exposure Configure the maximum exposure time that can be set when executing [Optimize Brightness] in the [Action] tab. By clicking the [Optimize Brightness] icon, the appropriate exposure setting with the value below the 'Maximum Exposure' value can be obtained. Gain Factor The sensitivity of an image sensor.
