View Full Version : LabView IC Extension set Trigger Operation

April 21, 2016, 16:36:04
I am currently developing a LabView program that is supposed to capture an image when a trigger is being sent to the camera.
The camera does have to modes of operation for the shutter, rolling and global reset release. I am able to change the mode within ICCapture, but I also want to be able to change it inside my LabView program. Unfortunately I am unable to find the correct command for it.

Does anybody know how to do this?

Hello Korbi

Which camera model do you use?
In case it is an USB camera: If you use the National Instruments IMAQdx, please complain at NI, that they forgot to implement the trigger interface. (And a lot of more things like frame rates.)

In case you use our LabVIEW extension, based on an older IC Imaging Control ActiveX, you will find a VI for enabling the trigger. Using a triggered camera always should be done with a callback function, which is called, when a new image arrives. For doing so, the "LiveCaptureContinuous" property of IC Imaging Control must be set to true and you can implement the ImageAvailable event.
