VisionPro Release: 8.1 (32-bit)


This zipped file for VisionPro 8.1 (32-bit) contains the on-line documentation, release notes, and installer. This download is for installation on Microsoft® Windows 7 and Windows XP 32-bit operating systems.

New features include:

- Microsoft .NET 4.0 Framework

This release includes Microsoft .NET 4.0 assemblies and requires Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 for programmatic development with .NET 4.0 target framework. Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 as well as other target frameworks are not supported by this release.

- OCRMax™ Autotune

A new autotune functionality has been added to the OCRMax tool. Autotune provides a very easy and quick method for configuring the character segmentation parameters together with automatic font training.

- Support for DS1000 series displacement sensors

VisionPro 8.1 adds acquisition and tool support for the new Cognex DS1000 series of displacement sensors. The new tools allow to run a variety of calculations on 3D range images such as volume calculation, heigh measurement, plane calculations and angle measurements.

- Programmatic configuration of GigE cameras

This release features a new programmatic interface to configure GigE vision cameras in addition to the graphical GigE configuration utility

- 3D-Locate

The VisionPro 8.1 installer now also installs the VisionPro 3d-Locate software. 3D-Locate applications still require a separate license in addition to the VisionPro MAX license.

- Optional Installation of Documentation and sample code

The VisionPro 8.1 installer offers not to install the documentation and sample code. This can reduce disk space for installation to less than 500MB.

This release can be used to generate VisionPro applications that can be deployed on a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system. If deploying to a 64-bit operating system, then download the 64-bit version of VisionPro 8.1 and install it on the deployed PC.
