This page documents features of the prosilica_camera package that most users will not need, but may be useful to advanced users.

Command-line tools

These work only for an unopened camera (i.e. prosilica_node should not be running).

read_memory

Outputs the current contents of the camera's non-volatile user memory. This is where prosilica_node saves the camera calibration, so this tool can be used to view the saved calibration, if any.

Usage:

$ read_memory <IP address>

write_memory

Overwrites the contents of the camera's non-volatile user memory with the contents of a file. The file must be 512 bytes or less. This tool can be used to upload a set of calibration parameters archived in one of the file formats understood by prosilica_node.

The normal way of setting the calibration is by running camera_calibration.

Usage:

$ write_memory <IP address> <file>
