What is the eBUS SDK and what languages does it support?

The eBUS SDK is a software development kit provided by Pleora. Pleora manufactures the network cards in many FLIR cameras—mostly the GenICam and GigE Vision compliant cameras such as the FLIR Ax5 and A615.

The eBUS SDK is available as C# and C++ versions. Supported operating systems are:

  • Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 7 (x86 and x86_64)
  • Red Hat Linux 7, CentOS 7 (x86 and x86_64)
  • Ubuntu Linux 16.04 LTS and 14.04 LTS (x86, x86_64, and ARM processors)
  • OS X El Capitan (version 10.11).

The eBUS SDK provides access to GenICam registers and the video stream.

To get started quickly, FLIR provides a demo program called Gev Demo. The source code for Windows C++ is available here and the source code for Linux here.

For documentation and manuals, go to Pleora's website.

If the aim is to develop applications for FLIR cameras, FLIR recommends the Atlas SDK.
