Basler offers free Pylon SDK download
Basler Vision Technologies is offering the full Pylon Software Development Kit (SDK) as a free download from its website.
'Free download via the web will replace all distribution methods we used in the past,' explains Werner Borchert, product manager at Basler Components. 'By making the Pylon SDK freely available, everyone can immediately benefit from new developments and improvements in the driver as soon as they are released.'
The Pylon Driver operates with all Basler GigE Vision and IEEE 1394 area scan and line scan cameras. The driver's full compatibility with the GenICam standard provides the benefit of a unified C++ camera API for both area and line scan cameras. Due to a generic design approach, the driver makes new camera features such as the I/O debouncer or auto-exposure immediately accessible without the need for a software update.
