Opto-coupled Trigger 5 - Trigger board

Trigger Board for Opto-Coupled Signals

You can use this trigger extension board with the microEnable frame grabbers. It enables 16 opto-coupled (galvanically isolated) trigger signals that can be adjusted to the industrial signal level (usually 5 to 24 volts). The 8 inputs and 8 outputs can be configured with a special applet in VisualApplets.

  • connect external peripherals to the frame grabber
  • synchronize multiple frame grabbers with each other via one trigger board (special multiboard trigger cable)
  • individually adjust the inputs and outputs with VisualApplets
