pylon API Documentation#
The pylon Camera Software Suite provides the pylon SDK (software development kit) that includes the following APIs (application programming interfaces):
- C API (Windows and Linux)
- C++ API (Windows, Linux, and macOS)
- API for .NET languages, e.g., C# and VB.NET (Windows only)
You can access all of the camera's parameters and control the camera's full functionality from within your application software by using the matching pylon API (C++, C, or .NET).
The pylon SDK Samples Manual describes the SDK sample programs. The samples illustrate how to use the pylon APIs to parameterize and operate the camera.
The pylon Deployment Guide describes how to deploy pylon software via copy deployment or the runtime redistributable packages.
