pylon 5 – Now Available for Linux Too!
With the release of the pylon 5 Camera Software Suite in November 2015, Basler became the first camera manufacturer to introduce a camera software using the new GenICam 3 technology. Effective immediately, pylon 5 is also available for Linux (x86 and ARM).
Faster: Thanks to GenICam 3, cameras now open about 4 times as quickly as the previous GenICam versions.
Smaller: Compared to previous GenICam versions, GenICam 3 requires only about half as much working memory.
Simpler: Thanks to the new possibility of simple copy deployment programs generated with the pylon SDK can be delivered to the end user as easy as never before. Thus pylon can be installed without conflicts with machine vision software packages from other manufacturers based on GenICam technology.
