Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you. Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

The simulator screen appears. Note If the hardware configuration is changed, you will need to reinstall the software and obtain a new serial key or return the computer to the original hardware configuration.

Chapter Examples of Software Use This chapter describes the representative functions of this software and their use. Example 1: Using the Simulator. Example 1: Using the Simulator This section uses a sample file to explain the simulator. Using the Simulator with a Sample File 1. Starting the simulator 2 1 1 Select [Start simulation] from the [Simulator] menu. The settings for the sample program Virtual CV: sample are selected.

Start the simulator. The relationship between console buttons and keyboard keys is shown in Table 1. Note There is no keyboard key that corresponds to the button on the under side of the remote No. Differences Between the Simulator and the Actual CV Series This section introduces the unique and convenient functions of the simulator that differentiate it from the CV device.

Name input via keyboard function This function allows the computer keyboard to be used to enter names when the software keyboard is displayed including window names, calculation names and custom screen character input. This reduces the time required to create multiple windows or calculations.

There are 8 differences between the simulator and the physical device. The Virtual CV The simulator operating environment must be created before the simulator can be run. Use commercial image editing software to convert the image to a x pixel, 24 bit color image.

The simulator can use the following types of image data. The data to be loaded will be displayed under [Filename [before Import]] from the [Import Test Images] menu.

Also, data that has been converted into a format that is accessible by the simulator will be displayed under [Filename [after Import]]. Each folder has a setting folder, which is associated with one setting file. This does not specify the setting file name, but rather specifies the drive on which the file is stored. Load a program file into the simulator The procedure for reading programs on the SD card to the virtual drive of the simulator is as follows: 1 2 Select [Transfer programs] from the [Simulator] menu.

The [Transfer Programs] menu appears. Note This function is not available while collecting data. Suspend data collection before proceeding with the simulator.

A Information about [File type] is displayed. Select a program data folder within the computer or in the external removable media. Reference Using load target and global data 2 When global data is loaded from a CV Series controller, the program no. To set the physical controller to the same program number as the simulator, first load only the global data. Then close the [Transfer Programs] menu and load the program data and saved images. File access will take a long time if there are too many images in a folder.

After selecting an image, click the [Open] button. When reading the image data of multiple cameras, change the camera number and repeat reading. A The [Write from] information is displayed. Specify the Program No. Refer to steps 3 and 4 B The [Write to] information is displayed. Select a program data folder within the computer or on an external removable media. A confirmation message appears. An [End] message appears.

Click the [OK] button to return to the main window. When adding a new Virtual CV Select from the confirmed connections and specify a device to connect to. Once the simulator has started, changing the target Program no. Write the program from the connected CV series Change the program set in step 1 with the simulator, then write it to the device.

Select a program data folder within the computer or an external removable media. Reference Program number saved on a memory card connected to the E drive is selected in the example shown on the left. Note 7 2 All the target data to read is deleted on execution. Before executing, make sure that the CV Series controller is set to [Run] mode. A message will appear indicating that the data has been successfully loaded.

Reference Using load target and global data When global data is loaded from a CV Series controller, the program no. Specify the program number from which to read the data. The default setting is the program number currently being used by the simulator. Example 2: Creating a Log File and Displaying it with Excel This section describes how to create a log file for output data, save that log file and then open it as an Excel file.
