Installing Your Interface Card and Software

1. Install your Interface Card


Ensure the card is installed per the manufacturer's instructions.

Connect the internal IDE or SATA power connector on the card to the computer power supply.

Alternatively, use your PC's built-in host controller, if equipped.

Open the Windows Device Manager. Ensure the card is properly installed. Ethernet cards appear under Network Adapters. An exclamation point (!) next to the card indicates the driver has not yet been installed.

2. Install the Spinnaker® Software

Note: For existing users who already have Spinnaker installed, we recommend ensuring you have the latest version for optimal performance of your camera. If you do not need to install Spinnaker, use SpinView to install and enable drivers for your card.
  1. Login to the Downloads page.
  2. Select your Product Family, Camera Model and Operating System from the drop-down lists.
  3. Click on the Software search results to expand the list.
  4. Click the appropriate link to begin the download and installation.

After the download is complete, the Spinnaker setup wizard begins. If the wizard does not start automatically, double-click the .exe file to open it. Follow the steps in each setup dialog.

3. Enable jumbo frames

  1. In Start->All Programs-> Point Grey Spinnaker SDK->SpinView, right click on the Network Adapter and select Adapter Configuration, then select IP Configuration.
  2. Click Open Network Connections.
  3. Click Change Settings.
  4. Click on the Advanced tab and from the Settings list select Jumbo Packet.
  5. Set the Value to 9014 Bytes and click OK.
