Visual Control for EasyPLC

The visual control plugin allows you to use a simple webcam as a system of optical recognition or vigilance.

 

With this tool, you can add a large quantity of resources to your logic programs. So, you will be able to take photographs, recognize parts/elements in terms of the function of their colour, or, for example, activate a relay when the camera detects movement in the area or areas that you have previously configured.
