calling a Cognex job with Siemens TIA V 16

3 posts in this topic

I am setting up a vision inspection station which will require me to have 3 independent jobs within the camera. I am using 2 Cognex 9912, a Cognex 2000, and a S71200 PLC. Cognex has sent me a copy of the job call FB, but it is giving me fits. There are several tags referencing a data base called Insight1_Inputs, when I try to create a data base with this name it will not allow me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can upload pictures if needed. thanks in advance

I've not worked Cognex with Siemens, but when I did Cognex with Rockwell it was necessary to import an EDS so that the PLC and Programming software new how to interact with the camera.  I suspect something similiar is happening here.  Correctly registering the EDS with the software might just allow you to create the DB or create it for you.  Just my 2 pesos.

The Siemens counterpart to the EDS/AOP is the GSD. I'd think that Cognex would provide more support than just sending you an FB, but I've never set up a system from scratch....
