•USB3 ports are to be used, they are mostly marked blue and should be as near as possible to the mainboard (onboard).
•Cable length is recommended no longer than than 5m.
•When the cable is not plugged in completely it might be recognized as USB2 since not all pins are connected.
•If an USB 3 adapter card with PCI Express 1x is used on a system which has PCI Express 1.0 slots then the maximum possible bandwidth is 250MB/s.
But for cameras with higher bandwith a modern mainboard with a newer PCI Express version is needed.
•Refer also the USB3 Vision System Requirements.
If you connect a USB 3 Vision Device Windows is searching for the best fitting driver for this device.
If CVB is installed and no other driver is available which supersedes the CVB ones then it is installed and the device should work.
But if Windows choose the wrong driver we need to uninstall the other driver with CVB U3V Driver Manager. Then the driver will be used.
CVB Management Console -> U3V Driver Manager -> deinstall Driver
Within Linux there is normally one USB3 Driver. And this driver should work for all. Otherwise there is no output from lsual.
In the folder %CVB%\Hardware\StemmerImaging\Utilities :
Use “lsual –l” in a console window.
The chipset driver might also be too old. Please install the newest available driver for your chipset.
Refer USB3 Vision System Requirements.
For this camera an external power supply through the 12-pin Hirose connector is essential.
