Overview

This page shows the how you can determine compatibility between USB3 Vision Cameras and NI Real-Time Target Devices. Reference this information to ensure that your USB3 Vision Camera and NI Real-Time Target Device will function correctly together when upgrading or updating your system, when migrating or porting code to a new system, or after the purchase and installation of new NI hardware.

Note that this article replaces KnowledgeBase 6DOBS800 : Which USB3 Vision Cameras are Compatible with USB 2.0 ports on NI Real-Time Targets?. Some NI manuals may still reference the previous document. If you were redirected from the previous KnowledgeBase URL, please update your bookmarks accordingly.

2. USB3 Vision Camera Compatibility with other NI Real-Time Targets

If you want to use an NI Real-Time Target not listed above with a USB3 Vision Camera, there are two requirements that must be met.


1. The USB3 Vision Camera must be backwards compatible with the USB 2.0 standard - Please check with the camera manufacturer to inquire if a specific camera is compatible with USB 2.0 ports.
2. The NI Real-Time Target Device must be capable of sourcing enough current through its USB 2.0 port to power the camera.


You may refer to this chart or the Device Specifications of your specific device to ensure that the USB 2.0 port meets the power requirements of your camera.
