Xiris Weld Cameras Now Supported on Linux

Burlington, Ontario, Canada, August 2019 – Xiris announces the release of its WeldSDK for Linux operating systems. The WeldSDK software development kit allows developers to create their own programs to integrate Xiris weld cameras into their equipment. It incorporates camera controls, image recording and playback, and various image processing functions. The Linux operating system is an open source operating system suitable for real-time processing on personal computers. By supporting Linux, Xiris can now provide its customers with the ability to process videos from welding cameras on a realtime basis.

This will provide many benefits for our customers including deterministic cycle times and the ability to further customize their display programs based on their users’ needs. Traditionally able to only run on Windows OS, the addition of Linux OS will provide more security, more flexibility, more programming language support and a better overall user experience for our customers.
