Issue Details

I have a NI 17xx smart camera, and I am running Vision Builder AI 3.5 on it. It seems that once I add the Serial I/O step to my inspection, my Acquisition steps generate errors whenever I switch between the Inspection Interface and the Configuration Interface.


This is a known issue with the Serial I/O step of original camera software image.

In order to prevent this problem, we recommend that all customers upgrade to the latest software image for the NI 17xx smart camera.

Additional Information

For more information on installing software on the Smart Camera target, please see Loading Vision Builder for AI 3.5 or Later through MAX onto a Compact Vision System (CVS) or Smart Camera
