Connecting Two xiMU Cameras With Synchronized Acquisition


Two or more xiMU cameras can be connected with synchronized acquisition of images.
To decrease delay between images - the cameras should be interconnected by strobe/trigger signal.

Interconnect Cameras

Interconnect the cameras with 2 signals:
  • GND (pin 3 on Trigger Plug of MU_MH Patch Cable)
    • Connect this pin to same pin on other camera (GND)
  • GX2 (pin 1 on Trigger Plug of MU_MH Patch Cable)
    • Connect this pin to same pin on other camera (GX2)

Connect Cameras to PC

Connect both cameras to PC.


Note: Be sure that each camera is connected to different USB controller. If camera is connected to the USB hub/controller with other device (e.g. camera) - the acquisition will not be stable. Please use xiCOP to detect connection architecture.


Control the Cameras with xiAPI

  • Install the latest version of XIMEA API Software Package
  • Open the project example xiSample (c:/XIMEA/Examples/xiSample) in Microsoft Visual Studion 2005
  • Replace the file xiSample with xiSample.cpp
