Vision Experience:
General knowledge about camera equipment (focus, aperture, exposure time).
Using a caliper to measure distances to reference points is crucial especially if you have to setup or adjust a vision station to a reference station.
Physical setup from Vision systems require a steady hand and precise mechanic adjustments.
Using a variety of different calibration screens to calibrate different aspects of the system to a reference value or a target (white balance, focus, polarization, etc.).
Understanding the core components of many different vision products is important, working with signal controllers like Beckhoff or Siemens, I/O modules and a variety of different types of sensors.
Configure the vision core system station and operation specific.
Keeping the vision systems in excellent and clean condition. Cleaning the components with care, wipe down camera lenses, remove dust, vacuum, remove sticky residue with alcohol pads etc.
Analytic thinking: Example: From one day to the other, 5 vision stations have a different behavior. Try to identify what could cause a symptom that affects multiple station at the same time.
Finding problem patterns is highly recommended, working with computer tools which can assist to analyze patterns. For instance, export data into a csv file and format the output in MS excel in order to identify a visualize a pattern.
Track system issues in form of an open issue list and share it with your team members (supervisor, team leader, developer team etc.).
