IR Imager Interfaces

Evocortex develops several software libraries for the integration of optris PI thermal imagers:

  • libirimager : Free C/C++-interface for Linux and Windows applications.
  • libirmonitor : Event-based C++-interface with callback-handler, watchdog and user-defineable alarm routines.
  • C bindings : Comfortable TCP/IP-based C-interface for the integration in customer specific applications, e. g. under C, C++, C# or Labview.
  • The following diagram depicts the possible usage of above mentioned libraries. We offer support for the development process of customer-specific applications.

    IR Imager Direct-SDK - libirimager

    Evocortex supports the Linux/Windows Direct-SDK for the optris PI series. With the library libirimager the customer gets access to the camera's data stream via a C++-interface. The SDK is available for the following platforms:

    Installation instructions and SDK documentation are available at: IR Imager Direct-SDK. Extension demands and special customer requests can be inquired to us. Please send us a message via our contact form.

    Notice: The interfaces of the SDK were modified slightly to met the requirement of unifying Windows and Linux usage. The previous version is still available at the Optris website.

    ROS interface for IR Imager Direct-SDK

    Thermal imagers of the optris PI series can be integrated in ROS based architectures. The necessary wrapper for the previous version (ROS fuerte to ROS jade) and the new Direct-SDK (ROS kinetic and upwards) can be found under the following URL:
