    7-1 Changing the Scene to Change the Line Process What Are Scenes? With an FQ Vision Sensor, the inspection items that can be processed at the same time are registered as scenes. A command input from an external device or a touch panel operation can be used to select a certain scene.

    7-4 Logging Measurement Data and Image Data There are two ways to log data. Data can be temporarily saved in memory inside the Sensor (called recent results logging) or large amounts of data can be saved in SD cards or other external media (called file logging). The amounts of data that can be logged are given in the following table.

    Checking Recent Measurement Trends (Recent Results Logging) The most recent measurement results can be logged inside the Sensor. Even if data is not logged in external memory, such as an SD card, trends in measurement results can be easily checked on the Touch Finder. However, if the power supply is turned OFF or the scene is changed, this data will be lost.
