The PCI-8252 ships with National Instruments Vision Acquisition Software.
The Rosewill RC-504 PCIe adapter card adds 2 external Firewire 1394a (400 Mbps) ports to your computer. Requires an open PCI Express 1-lane(x1) port. No drivers to install.
The StarTech PEX1394B3 adds two IEEE 1394b FireWire 800 ports and one IEEE 1394a FireWire 400 port. Works without any additional drivers.
To connect a FireWire 400 (1394a) camera to a FireWire 400 port, you will typically need a 6-pin FireWire cable.
Laptop FireWire ports are typically 4-pin and do not provide power to the camera. This is resolved with a 6-pin to 4-pin Y-cable and power supply.
To connect a FireWire 400 (1394a) camera to a FireWire 800 (1394B) port, you will need a 6-pin to 9-pin FireWire cable.
For many camera interface options, Durango requires National Instruments Vision Acquisition Software (NI-VAS). NI-VAS may be downloaded for a trial evaluation.
The free CMU 1394 drivers from Carnegie Mellon University are supported by Durango and are compatible with a wide range of digital cameras under Windows XP. We look forward to these drivers being someday available for Windows 7.
Operates with all Basler cameras that have an IEEE 1394a, IEEE 1994b or GigE Vision interface. Internal architecture is based on GenICam. Durango does not yet support the Pylon drivers.
