Event Control

Event Features

Events allow you to get notified when the camera has performed something you might find interesting. Events are similar to the asynchronous communication but the difference is the initiator is the device.

Once an event is turned on, it has its own XML area where it outputs the event's ID, timestamp, and any applicable event data.

Use EventSelector to choose an event, then use EventNotification to set the event On or Off.

The possible events to choose are:

Exposure End - Event is sent every image when exposure end occurs. Event data includes: the event ID, timestamp, and frame ID.

Error - Event is sent every time an error occurs internally in the device. Event data includes: the event ID, timestamp, frame ID, and error code.

In order to verify that events are working, there is a Test Event Generate command which allows you to trigger the camera to send a test event out.

Event Test - Event you can trigger to verify events are working properly. This is always enabled. Event data includes: exposure end ID and exposure end timestamp.
