Simplon Software Developer Suite - Camera Tools, Drivers and Image Acquisition API


Simplon is the primary software interface for Leutron Vision camera families, PicSight and CheckSight. Simplon encapsulates access to individual camera types and technologies in a single, consistent interface. It also unifies various aspects of GenICam based (GenApi & GenTL) camera control.

Simplon comes also with a preprocessing library that unifies access to preprocessing capabilities of some cameras and similar functionality in the software. Last but not least, it also offers GUI components and dialogs for inclusion in user applications – such as the GenICam feature tree control.

Besides the programming libraries, Simplon comes with set of tools for camera control (configuration and firmware upgrade), interactive camera explorer/viewer as well as tools for rapid application development (code generator).



Simplon Explorer provides all the features needed to immediately connect to the cameras, configure them and acquire images.

The Simplon package supports all the latest Leutron Vision camera families, in particular the PicSight-GigE, PicSight-Smart and CheckSight product lines.

The Source Code Generator is a development assisting tool built in the Simplon Explorer. Its purpose is to help the developer to quickly start a Simplon application.

The embedded programming environment of the PicSight-Smart cameras is widely integrated with Simplon.
