Hi experts, I’m using a PXI RT controller, such as the PXI-8108 RT which has only a single Ethernet port.
And I am trying to acquire images from a GigE camera through this port, but an error appears.
Hardware:PXI/CompactPCI > Controllers > PXI-8108 RT
Do you have any suggestions?
High performance acquisition is not supported on the specified network interface.
Connect the camera to a network interface running the high performance driver.
IMAQdx Error appears when using a PXI RT controller
All single port controllers like your single port PXI RT controller is not designed for GigE (camera) because the bandwidth allocation on this port is very limited, it can't handle large amount which the GigE camera consumes. Just like what the error said, it can't handle high performance acquisition because of the port's limitation.
GigE camera would work well if you have two Ethernet port. So, I suggest that if you want to capture images using your GigE camera on your PXI RT contoller, it is best to have another Ethernet card that has two ports. I would recommend Dual Gigabit Ethernet Card like PXIe-8234, Inter 825466EB Dual Port Controller, or ST1000SPEXDP dual port PCIe.
Oh another note, GenICam must be installed first before the GigE vision camera.
