Name Type Default Description
ioState VisionBox_State& Object used to maintain state of the function.
inDeviceNumber const int Device number
inChannelNumber const Optional<int> NIL Channel in device - when set to auto all channels will be configured at the same time
inTriggerSource const VisionBoxTriggerSource::Type Signal used to issue the trigger

inTrgPOn const bool P Gate ON signal
inTrgNOff const bool N Gate OFF signal
inTrgNOn const bool N Gate ON signal


This filter is simple wrapper over CameraTrigger::Set SDK function. Refer to AGE-X SDK to see how to use this function properly.

When inChannelNumber is set to auto, CameraTrigger::SetAll is used.


Precondition for use of VisionBox filters is to have Imago Technologies AGE-X SKD installed on target computer. AGE-X SDK provides filters with necessary libraries (DLL files) and drivers. After installation of AGE-X SDK, system restart may be required.

Recommended AGE-X SDK version for Adaptive Vision Studio usage is
