I recently plugged in a web camera to my Onefinity X50 running version 1.0.9 and noticed that the web application is crashing periodically. Fortunately this has not happened in the middle of a job. I generally leave the controller on during the day and have found the web application to be in a crashed state since plugging in the camera.
The only thing that has changed in my setup is the addition of the camera. I unplugged the camera and there have been no more crashes.
Is this a known issue? I did a quick search and didn’t see anyone talking about it.
If I had to guess, I would say that it is more of a data issue than power. Perhaps the Chrome tab is running out of memory. I was able to simply refresh the tab to restart the web app. But it crashed again later. I imagine the higher the resolution the faster it will crash. My camera was old so I doubt it was 1080p.
But it might be worth a try. I wouldn’t try it while running a job though.
BTW - I looked a little deeper into the online resources and didn’t find this limitation documented in the Buildbotics manual or an FAQ. There was a reference in the Onefinity forum, though kind of buried. We might want to add an FAQ on this issue.
Can I assume that should a crash like this occur during a job would the CNC simply stop moving?
