Click - Video Setup Device and Software


The MP software supports the configuration of 3 types of Sectors:


1. Device Sectors = 3 x mA outputs and a single relay inside the scanner. Generally used when a customer chooses just a linescanner (without software package), supplied with lite software. A PC is not mandatory for use but required to setup the sectors. The software can be used for visualization. The ignore below/above function is not available in Device Sectors.


2. Software Sectors = >64 sectors calculated by the software only. The process values or alarm signals can be mapped to Wago output modules (unless Scanner Sectors are configured). A PC is mandatory for use. Sector results are more sophisticated than Scanner or Device Sectors. The ignore below/above function is available in Software Sectors:


3. Scanner Sectors =  10 sectors (1 fixed position or scanner internal temperature and 9 adjustable position or scanner internal temperature), calculated in the scanner. The process values or alarm signals are mapped to Wago output modules. A PC is not mandatory for use but required to setup the sectors. Often this is called "pc free" operation but "pc independent" is more applicable.

In this situation it is possible to also create Software Sectors but not possible to map the sector values to Wago output modules. Sector results are more sophisticated than Device Sectors but less sophisticated than Software Sectors

The ignore below/above function is available in Scanner Sectors (only available for the sector Average function):  


How to Configure


1. Device Sectors - this tab shows that Sector 1 is active covering the full 90 degree FOV, with a "maximum" sector result configured for Output 1 with a 4-20mA range of 20 to 350 deg C, plus a high temperature process alarm at 200 deg C. With this configuration you will see the sector result in the software (dotted line), the software will not show when the Device Sector generated alarm is active.


This tab shows that the scanner internal temperature alarm is configured for 55 deg C (in addition to Sector 1 active)


2. Software Sectors - This page shows a Software Sector created to mimic Device Sector 1. This allows the software sector value to be displayed where the value will turn red with a high alarm.
