Appendix D – Interprocess Communication (IPC)
The communication to the process imager device is handled by the Optris PI Connect software (Imager.exe)

(IPC) for other attached processes. The DLL can be dynamically linked into the secondary application. Or it
can be done static by a lib file too.
Both Imager.exe and ImagerIPC.dll are designed for Windows XP/Vista/7 only. The application must support
The ImagerIPC.dll will export a bunch of functions that are responsible for initiating the communication,
retrieving data and setting some control parameters.
The description of the init procedure as well as the necessary command list you will find on the CD
