Matrox Radient eCL-SF and eCL-DF connectors and signal names



This section serves as a reference to match Matrox Radient eCL-SF and eCL-DF's connectors and auxiliary/camera control signals with MIL information, such as MIL auxiliary/camera control signal numbers. To set/inquire all the settings for your Matrox Radient eCL's auxiliary/camera control signals (for example, signal routing and timer settings), use MdigControl() / MdigInquire(), respectively.

Matrox Radient eCL-SF and eCL-DF have a different number of acquisition paths and auxiliary/camera control signals. For each Matrox Radient eCL, only the auxiliary/camera control signals associated with the following digitizer device numbers are supported:

Matrox Radient eCL type

Digitizer device #

Matrox Radient eCL-SF

M_DEV0

Matrox Radient eCL-DF

M_DEV0, M_DEV1

The following table lists the connectors of the auxiliary/control signals that can be used for each digitizer device number:

Digitizer device #

Matrox Radient eCL-SF

Matrox Radient eCL-DF

M_DEV0

Auxiliary I/O connector A and some on C

Auxiliary I/O connector A and some on C

M_DEV1

Auxiliary I/O connector B and some on D

Auxiliary I/O signals and camera control signals can have one or more functionalities (for example, trigger input, timer output, or user output, depending on the signal). Their possible functionalities are described in their description in the pinout table below.

Matrox Radient eCL has 4 trigger controllers per acquisition path so that on-board events (for example, acquisition and timer output) can start upon different triggers if required. Due to the auxiliary signal/trigger controller restriction, outlined in the pinout table below, you must be aware that although a trigger controller might support several trigger input signals, only one signal can drive a trigger controller at any given time. For example, if you set signal A as the trigger input source for acquisition, and signal B as the trigger input source for timer 1, signal A and B must be driving different trigger controllers; if they drive the same trigger controller, an error is generated. You can set a signal (for example, signal A) as the trigger input source for both acquisition and timer 1; in this case, the associated trigger controller triggers both events at the same time.

Only those auxiliary/camera control signals that have matching MIL information are included in this section. For information on internal connectors and a comprehensive list of all available input and output signals, refer to the Matrox Radient eCL's installation and hardware reference manual.

Matrox Radient eCL-SF and eCL-DF connectors

On your Matrox Radient eCL, there are several interface connectors. On the bracket of Matrox Radient eCL-SF, there are two Camera Link video input connectors and an auxiliary I/O connector. On the double bracket of Matrox Radient eCL-DF, there are two pairs of Camera Link video input connectors and two auxiliary I/O connectors. On the cable adapter bracket, there are two external auxiliary I/O connectors.

All of Matrox Radient eCL's connectors have auxiliary/camera control signals with matching MIL information.

Description

Camera Link video input connectors

SDR (0,1,2 and 3)

The Camera Link video input connectors are 26-pin high-density female mini Camera Link connectors. They are used to receive video input, timing, synchronization signals and transmit/receive communication signals between the video source and the frame grabber. There are two Camera Link video input connectors (SDR 0 and 1) on the Matrox Radient eCL-SF. There are four Camera Link video input connectors (SDR 0, 1, 2 and 3) on eCL-DF.

External auxiliary I/O connectors

DBHD-15 (A, B, C and D)

External auxiliary I/O connectors are high-density D-subminiature 15-pin male connectors. They are used to transmit/receive auxiliary signals.

External auxiliary I/O connectors A and if present B are located on Matrox Radient eCL, and external auxiliary I/O connectors C and D are located on the cable adapter brackets.

Signal names and their matching MIL constants

The table below lists the auxiliary/camera control signals with their associated MIL information. Note that the MIL constants in this table are those to use with MIL 10 and later. If you are upgrading from a previous version of MIL, you should port your code using the conversion tables for the Matrox Radient eCL (MILRadientCameraLinkIOConversionTable) in the MIL release notes.
