Hi.

I am going to connect 4 of DMK 42BUC03 cameras on a single PC and make them work with 5V TTL triggering signal to acquire single shot image on various angle.

But when I connect 3rd camera, it doesn't work anymore and display the following error message.

"The device is in live mode, but does not seems to deliver images"

Do you have any experience on multiple camera acquisition setup?

And if someone have a LabVIEW file for multiple usb camera, then I appreciate in advance if I can get it.

Thank you.

If you do no have one USB controller per camera, you must reduce the frame rates. Try lowest frame rates.

Also, please take care of power. Each camera consumes 200 ~ 250mA. An USB Controller provides 500mA only.
