Capture images from multiple cameras simultaneously with NI PCIe-8233

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm using the NI PCIe-8233 and 3 cameras Basler ace acA1280-60gc for a system of recognizing faults in objects.
For this I need to capture simultaneous images. How can I do it?

 

Best Regards

Hello Diuda!

 

There are 2 ways of synchronizing the Acquisition from your cameras, as you can see here: https://www.baslerweb.com/en/products/cameras/area-scan-cameras/ace/aca1280-60gc/#tab=specs  Under "Camera Data" section. 

 

1- Hardware synchronization:

Use the camera's Digital input as a trigger to acquire the images on the 3 cameras. all from the same source. 

2-Use software synchronization by configuring on NI-MAX the trigger on the cameras in a way that the acquisition in camera A will be a Digital output that triggers the cameras B and C.
