Description


ValueDescription

TRIGGER_TYPE_FREE_RUNNING

Frames are output continuously, driven by an internal trigger that occurs as frequently as possible.

TRIGGER_TYPE_SOFTWARE

Frames are output when PxLGetNextFrame is called, which generates a software trigger (using the IIDC ONE_SHOT feature).

TRIGGER_TYPE_HARDWARE

Frames are output on receipt of valid external hardware triggers.

TRIGGER_TYPE_ACTION

Enables the frame acquisition action. When an action command is received, the camera will output one or more frames, according to the trigger settings. See: Action Type


See trigger diagrams of the trigger for various cameras


Notes


Frame acquisition actions (TRIGGER_TYPE_ACTION) support both mode 0 and mode 14 type triggers, using the same parameters as the hardware and software trigger types. Polarity and Delay have no meaning in the context of action triggers, so those parameters are ignored.
