Device driver software
This filter is intended to cooperate with a device using PMDSDK 2. In order to connect with the device, it is required to download PMDSDK 2.
PMDSDK 2 can be downloaded from the following website: https://www.ifm.com/us/en/search#!/infomaterialanddownloads?_type=infomaterialanddownloads&docType=download. Please download "O3D303 Software Development Kit"
After download you have to manually copy pmdaccess2.dll file to Aurora Vision Studio main directory (usually located in Program Files). Alternatively you can add directory with this dll file to PATH environment variable
Additionally in inAddress input you will need to provide camera plugin and processing plugin file path.
It is recommended to disable DHCP in the device and using static IP address.
This filter is available on Basic Complexity Level.
This filter is member of IFM_GrabImage filter group.
