This filter is intended for establishing connection with camera device using Spinnaker SDK, for streaming images out of it in continuous mode.
Waiting time for new, valid image frame is not limited. For explicitly limiting timeout value and handling timeout condition, use Spinnaker_GrabImage_WithTimeout filter.
Camera driver software
This filter is intended to cooperate with camera using its vendor Spinnaker SDK. To be able to connect to camera it is required to install Spinnaker SDK software with camera dedicated drivers. Currently Aurora Vision Studio uses Spinnaker version v220.127.116.11.
Spinnaker SDK can be downloaded from the following website: https://www.flir.com/support/browse/camera-cores--components/machine-vision-cameras/sdks (registration may be required).
During installation you should select "Application Development". Visual Studio Version should be also changed to "Visual Studio 2015".
When there is only one camera connected to computer, inDeviceSerialNumber field can be set to Auto. In this situation first available camera will be found and connected.
inDeviceSerialNumber can be used to pick one of multiple cameras connected to computer. Set this field to device serial number (for example "1234567", should be available on device casing as "s/n: 1234567").
Most of parameters exposed by camera filters are optional, setting them to 'Auto' leaves related parameters for default configuration by camera driver.
To change other and more advanced camera parameters use configuration tool "SpinView" available with Spinnaker SDK. Refer to SDK documentation to find information about parameters and how to save parameters into memory channels.
It is also possible to adjust more advanced parameters using Spinnaker_SetParameter filters. The parameters name should be obtained from SpinView application or from Spinnaker SDK.
This filter is available on Basic Complexity Level.
This filter is member of Spinnaker_GrabImage filter group.
