Leica / Baumer Optronic camera support available in nightly build.

Hoover, Karl
Dear µManager users,

I have  implemented a µManager adapter for cameras supported by the Baumer Optronic library. It's available in the nightly build for Window-based systems. This device adapter is an β version. Some caveats are

1. You've got to have the Baumer libraries and camera drivers installed first.
2. This has been tested only on a Leica DFC 345 FX monochrome camera.
3. RGB support has been implemented but has not been tested.

In order to try out this device adapter, download the nightly build:

https://valelab.ucsf.edu/~MM/nightlyBuilds/1.3/Windows/MMSetup_1.3.45_20100218.exe

or later. Please let us know the results. A port to Unix looks a bit distant at this time.

Best Regards,
Karl Hoover

Hello Karl,

I've just tried the nightly build you've mentioned and also the latest one. With both versions  µManager crashes after step 4 in the hardware configuration wizard. I've already had a look at the log file, but this is empty.

Following our hard and software setup in order to provide some useful information:

Camera: Leica DC350F (HotLink Interface) with the latest driver (DC Twain V5.1.10)
The Baumer Optotronics Interface shows a Leica PCI-42 device with the driver version 1.80.0.0. The driver is boifcdrv.sys with file version 1.03.101.
There is also the Baumer SDK 5.0 installed and the camera works fine with that.

I hope that our hard and software is suitable for your interface.

Best regards,
Thomas Gruber
