Device driver software

This filter is intended to cooperate with a Gocator device running GoPxL firmware. It is not required to install any additional software to connect to the device.

Device identification

When there is only one device connected, the field inAddress can be set to Auto. In this situation, the first available device will be used.

inAddress can be used to pick one of multiple devices connected to the computer. inAddress can be set to:

  • IP Address - GoPxL Device identifying IP address (e.g. "" or "")
  • Serial Number - GoPxL Device serial number with "SN:" prefix (e.g. "SN:17335")
Gocator Protocol data source ID

When the fields inSourceID1 and inSourceID2 are set to Auto, all data sources of type Image would be processed by this filter. To process only specific data sources, set the values of these fields to appropriate IDs. Data source IDs can be found in the GoPxL web interface, under Control/Gocator tab. To disable one or both outputs of this filter set the corresponding IDs to -1.

Complexity Level

This filter is available on Basic Complexity Level.

Disabled in Lite Edition
