Static IP Network Configuration - Camera

Caution

The correct instructions for network configuration will depend on your SDK version. Choose your SDK version in the bottom left drop-down.

The CLI tool ZividNetworkCameraConfigurator allows you to change the camera network configuration of one camera at a time. This tool is installed alongside the Zivid SDK on Windows, and with the zivid-tools package on Ubuntu. If you are unsure whether this tool has been installed, follow the Software Installation guide. The camera can be configured in static IP mode or DHCP mode (defaults to link-local after ~45 seconds).

Caution

When configuring, ensure that you don’t physically connect multiple cameras with the same IP address at a time.

Set the IP address of the camera

  1. Open a terminal/Command Prompt.

  2. Connect a Zivid Two camera.

  3. Verify that your camera is found by running:

    ZividListCameras.exe
    
  4. Set static IP on camera:

    To set the camera in static IP mode with a specific IP address, subnet mask and gateway:

    ZividNetworkCameraConfigurator.exe set-config <host> --static --ip <ip> --subnet-mask <mask> --gateway <gateway>
    

    For example, changing the static IP from 172.28.60.5 to 172.28.60.6:

    ZividNetworkCameraConfigurator.exe set-config 172.28.60.5 --static --ip 172.28.60.6 --subnet-mask 255.255.255.0 --gateway 172.28.60.1
    

    Caution

    When changing static IP, make sure it is not colliding with something else on your network and that it is not in the DHCP range.

  5. Disconnect the camera.

  6. If you are configuring IP addresses of multiple cameras, repeat steps 2 to 5 with a different IP address for each camera. For each camera, remember to use an IP address within the same subnet range of its interfacing network card.

    Network configuration for two Zivid Two cameras connected to two separate network interface cards.

    For two cameras using individual network cards use e.g. 172.28.60.5 and 172.28.61.5.

  7. If you used IP address(es) outside the default subnet range, e.g., 192.168.100.23 with gateway 192.168.100.1, you need to change your network interface configuration again. To do that, follow Static IP Network Configuration - PC steps but with the IP address in the same subnet range as the camera(s), e.g., 192.168.100.2 and gateway 192.168.100.1.

  8. Connect your camera(s).

You have now configured the camera(s) for static IP. If the camera(s) IP is in a different subnet range than the PC, go to Static IP Network Configuration - PC before going onwards. If it is in the same subnet range, go to Discovering and connecting to the camera.
