Detailed Description#

The Transport Layer Factory or a Transport Layer object are used to enumerate and create pylon Devices.

An Instant Camera uses a pylon Device internally for operation. The term 'transport layer' is used as an abstraction for a physical interface such as USB, GigE, or Camera Link. You can find more information here:

  • Transport Layer Factory

  • Enumerating and Creating pylon Devices

Types Documentation#

enum EDeviceAccessMode#

Enumerator Value Description
Control 0x1 access the control and status registers
Stream 0x3 access a streaming data channel
Event 0x4 access the event data channel
Exclusive 0x5 exclusive access to the device
_NumModes

The available access modes when opening a camera object.

enum EDeviceAccessiblityInfo#

Enumerator Value Description
Accessibility_Unknown 0 The accessibility could not be determined. The state of accessibility is unknown.
Accessibility_Ok 1 The device could be opened.
Accessibility_Opened 2 The device is reachable, but can be opened in read only mode only.
Accessibility_OpenedExclusively 3 The device is reachable, but currently opened exclusively by another application.
Accessibility_NotReachable 4 The device could not be reached or does not exist. No connection to the device is possible.

Information about the accessibility of a device.

enum EGigEActionCommandStatus#

Enumerator Value Description
GigEActionCommandStatus_Ok 0 The device acknowledged the command.
GigEActionCommandStatus_NoRefTime 0xE1018013 The device is not synchronized to a master clock to be used as time reference. Typically used when scheduled action commands cannot be scheduled for a future time since the reference time coming from IEEE 1588 is not locked. The action command has been ignored by the device.
GigEActionCommandStatus_Overflow 0xE1018015 Returned when the scheduled action commands queue is full and the device cannot accept the additional request. The action command has been discarded by the device.
GigEActionCommandStatus_ActionLate 0xE1018016 The requested scheduled action command was requested at a point in time that is in the past. If the time tag of the scheduled action command is in the past (relative to the device timestamp), and if it is a valid action command, then the device will execute this action command immediately and return GigEActionCommandStatus_ActionLate. This status code is used as an indicator to the application requesting the action command that a mis-synchronization might have occurred.

Lists possible status codes returned by IGigETransportLayer::IssueActionCommand or IGigETransportLayer::IssueScheduledActionCommand.

Functions Documentation#

set#

AccessModeSet & set(
    size_t pos
)

Sets the bit at position pos.

Parameters:

  • pos Order position of the bit whose value is modified. Order positions are counted from the rightmost bit, which is order position 0.

Return: *this

reset#

AccessModeSet & reset()

Resets all bits to zero.

Return: *this

any#

bool any() const

Returns whether any of the bits is set (i.e., whether at least one bit in the AccessModeSet is set to one).

Return: true if any of the bits in the AccessModeSet is set (to one), and false otherwise.

none#

bool none() const

Returns whether any of the bits is set (i.e., whether at least one bit in the AccessModeSet is set to one).

Return: true if any of the bits in the AccessModeSet is set (to one), and false otherwise.

test#

bool test(
    size_t pos

Return: true if the bit at position pos is set, and false if it is not set.
