Software Installation (USB Interface Cards)#

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

To use a USB camera and USB Interface Card, a xHCI driver needs to be installed. For details, see Hardware Installation (USB 3.0 Cameras).


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 USB 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 USB Interface Card shows up as device on the host computer.
