Using two ZWO 174MM cameras in Micromanager


I am trying to use two ZWO 174MM cameras in Micromanager. This is my first time using this software, and I found on the internet that it supports the use of multiple cameras. What I need is the simultaneous triggering of at least two cameras, using software, because these cameras do not have external triggering. Could this be done in Micromanager?

Thanks a lot,

Hi @Armin, and welcome to this forum.

The answer depends on the device adapter and drivers fro your ASI ZWO cameras. Regretfully, ASI did not share the device adapters with us, therefore their code only works with specific (old) versions of Micro-Manager. You should ask them if this will work. Micro-manager has the capabilities for simultaneous software triggering of two cameras, but there are many reasons why this may not work with the ASI ZWO cameras. Let us know what you discover, and try to convince ASI to make their device adapter code publicly available.

Thank you for the information, I will contact ASI and try to solve the problem.

Kind regards,
