PyPylon: Cannot establish IEEE1394 Transport Layer

sokolizloke report abuse


I am using Basler A102f camera using FireWire (IEEE 1394) for connection and pypylon (from StudentCV) to control it. I have a problem to establish Transport Layer (at least this seems to me to be a problem). The camera works fin in pylon Viewer. When running this code

import pypylon.pylon as pylon
import sys;

tlfactory = pylon.TlFactory.GetInstance()
ptl = tlfactory.CreateTl('BaslerUsb')
detected_devices = ptl.EnumerateDevices()
print('%i devices detected:' % len(detected_devices))

I get till the end with printing out "0 devices detected". That's fine because I don't have a USB camera attached. But when I change the CreateTl argument to "Basler1394", which seems to be according to pylon SDK documentation, ptl is a 'NoneType' object and Error is returned.

Has anyone tried IEEE1394 cameras with pypylon and managed to run it successfully?

Hi Peter,
I don't know for certain, but I think maybe it doesn't support 1394...
I can reproduce your symptom exactly on my side though.
I see you've filed an issue on the PyPylon github page, which is exactly what I was going to suggest :).
Let's see what the developer's reply is...
have a good weekend! :)
