Image Acquisition Devices
Image acquisition devices can be integrated easily. Please find downloads for all supported image acquisition interfaces here.
Digital I/O Devices
Windows: Digital I/O devices from Advantech, Contec, Interface, National Instruments, as well as all OPC UA and OPC Classic compliant digital I/O devices
Linux: The Linux GPIO character device as well as all OPC UA compliant digital I/O devices
macOS: All OPC UA compliant digital I/O devices
Image File Formats: AVI, Binary, BMP, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, JPEG XR, HALCON Iconic Object (HOBJ), PCX, PNG, PNM, Sun-Raster, TIFF, XWD
The TIFF image format is supporting the possibility to store additional metadata within the image file.
3D Object Models: DXF R12, OFF, PLY, OBJ, STL
Serial Interface: Reading and writing of data
Sockets: Exchange of images, regions, XLD, and control data between HALCON processes as well as generic socket communication for data exchange with arbitrary systems
Real-Time Ethernet and Fieldbusses
Communication via Real-Time Ethernet or fieldbus protocols can easily be implemented under Windows using Hilscher hardware.
