This setting allows you to select the length unit of choice (meters, inches, …) after which length values in the interface will be converted to the newly selected unit.
Automatically save snapshots
You can choose to automatically save a snapshot everytime you trigger a detection from the web interface. This is useful when you are trying out different detection settings, and would like to have them registered, or simply would like to store all detection results.
To prevent running out of disk space, the number of saved snapshots is limited to max. number of snapshots to save. Old snapshots get removed once this number has been reached.
Since saving a snapshot takes some time, detections are slower when automatic snapshot saving is enabled.
Snapshots are not automatically saved if the detections are triggered while in snapshot mode.
Pickit port labeled ROBOT
This port has the purpose of connecting your Pickit processor to the robot controller or PLC.
By default, this port is set to Static, which means it’s using a fixed IP configuration. You can set the following IP Configuration options:
IP Address (Default value: 169.254.5.180)
Subnet mask (Default value: 255.255.0.0)
If you prefer to get an IP Address from a DHCP server, you set this port to Dynamic.
Testing the Robot to Pickit connection
You can check if the IP address of the robot or PLC is reachable from the Pickit processor by entering its IP address in the Robot IP field and pressing Check.
A pop-up message indicating failure or success appears on the lower right corner of the screen.
In case of failure, check if the cables are properly connected and whether the IP assigned to the robot during its IP configuration step matches the tested one.
