Setting the Device User ID#

You can use the pylon IP Configurator to change the device user ID of your GigE camera. The device user ID is an optional unique identifier.

This is useful for identifying individual cameras in environments with a large number of devices.

To set the device user ID:

  1. Enter a new device user ID for the camera in the Device User ID field.
  2. Click the Save button.

The IP Configurator will save your changes. This takes a few seconds. When the IP Configurator has finished saving, the information in the top pane and the lower central area will have been updated automatically.

For the change to become visible in the pylon Viewer, you need to close and reopen the pylon Viewer.
