MATRIX VISION - mvBlueCOUGAR-X/-XD Technical Documentation
Working with the 3 head model

The 3 head model behaves like a mvBlueCOUGAR-X standard camera and for this reason it can be used with every GigE Vision compliant software. The information of the three sensors are returned as a packed pseudo RGB image, with each color channel representing one sensor.

While working with trigger signals, a trigger signal will trigger all sensors simultaneously.

Because of the three sensor heads, you can set the gain and the offset (black level) of each sensor separately in "Setting -> Base -> Camera -> GenICam -> Analog Control -> "

  • "Black Level Selector"
