Software Installation (GigE Interface Cards)#

This topic tells you how to install the software required for a Basler GigE Interface Card.



On Windows, to operate the 10GigE Interface Card, 1 Port, you must either install a compatible driver from the Microsoft Driver Store (recommended) or use the correct Marvell driver for the AQC107 chipset. The Marvell AQtion 64-bit driver is available within the pylon installation in the \Development\Redist\Drivers directory. Alternatively, you can also download the latest driver from the Marvell website.

On Linux, the 10GigE Interface Card, 1 Port is usually natively supported by the Linux kernel.

To operate the interface card with a Basler camera, install the Basler pylon Software Suite (version 7.1 or higher) on the host computer.

When installing the pylon Software Suite for Windows, make sure to select the GigE Camera Support feature. This will install all runtime software, drivers, and related software tools that are required for operating the interface card.

After the installation, the GigE Interface Card shows up as a network device on the host computer.

For more information about the network settings, see the Network Configuration (GigE Cameras) topic.
