Number of lines
2 sets of 10 I/O lines, each set including: • 2 differential inputs (DIN)
• 4 isolated inputs (IIN)
• 4 isolated outputs (IOUT)
Usage• Each acquisition channel has a dedicated set of 10 I/O's
– The I/O set of INTERNAL IO CONNECTOR A is dedicated to the acquisition channel of
CAMERA A
– The I/O set of INTERNAL IO CONNECTOR B is dedicated to the acquisition channel of CAMERA B
• The input lines of an I/O set can be used by the corresponding acquisition channel as: – Camera frame trigger source (area-scan only)
– Acquisition sequence trigger source (area-scan only)
– Camera line trigger source (line-scan only)
– Page acquisition trigger source (line-scan only)
– Page acquisition end trigger source (line-scan only) – (Quadrature) motion encoder input (line-scan only)
• The IOUT 1 output line of an I/O set can be used by the corresponding acquisition channel, as:
– Illumination strobe output
• All the input lines can be used as general purpose inputs
• All the output lines can be used as general purpose outputs
Electrical specifications• DIN: High-speed differential inputs compatible with ANSI/EIA/TIA-422/485 differential line drivers and complementary TTL drivers
• IIN: Isolated current-sense inputs with wide voltage input range up to30V, compatible with totem-pole LVTTL, TTL, 5V CMOS drivers, RS-422 differential line drivers, potential free contacts, solid-state relays and opto-couplers
• IOUT: Isolated contact outputs compatible with 30V / 100mA loads
Filter control• Glitch removal filter available only on input lines used as trigger sources • Configurable with five time constants:
– 100 ns, 500 ns, and 2.5 μs for trigger / page trigger / page end trigger sources – 40 ns, 100 ns, 200 ns, 500 ns, 1 μs, 5 μs, 10 μs for line trigger sources
