The core of any image acquisition application is the data acquired from the input device. A trigger is the event that initiates the acquisition of image frames, a process called logging. A trigger event occurs when a certain condition is met. For some types of triggers, the condition can be the execution of a toolbox function. For other types of triggers, the condition can be a signal from an external source that is monitored by the image acquisition hardware.
The following topics describe how to configure and use the various triggering options supported by the Image Acquisition Toolbox™ software and control other acquisition parameters.
