Matrox Radient eV-CL SF/DF connectors and signal names



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

Matrox Radient eV-CL family members have a different number of acquisition paths and auxiliary/camera control signals. For each Matrox Radient eV-CL family member, only the auxiliary/camera control signals associated with the following digitizer device numbers are supported:

Matrox Radient eV type

Digitizer device #

Matrox Radient eV-CL SF

M_DEV0.

Matrox Radient eV CL 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 eV-CL SF

Matrox Radient eV-CL DF

M_DEV0

Auxiliary I/O connector A and C

Auxiliary I/O connector A and C

M_DEV1

Auxiliary I/O connector B and D

Auxiliary I/O 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. Note that, unlike some other Matrox frame grabbers, there is no limit to the number of events that can be triggered simultaneously using the auxiliary input signals, nor is there a restriction on which auxiliary signal can be used to trigger the event.

Only those auxiliary 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 board's installation and hardware reference manual.

Board connectors

The Matrox Radient eV-CL SF and eV-CL DF boards and cable adapter brackets provide several interface connectors. On the bracket of Matrox Radient eVCL SF, there are two Camera Link video input connectors and an auxiliary I/O connector. On the double bracket of Matrox Radient eV-CL 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.

Only the following connectors have auxiliary 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 Matrox Radient eV-CL SF. There are four Camera Link video input connectors (SDR 0, 1, 2 and 3) on Matrox Radient eV-CL DF.

External auxiliary I/O connector

HD-15 1 (A, B, C, and D)

The 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 eV-CL, and external auxiliary I/O connectors C and D are located on the cable adapter bracket.

1 Previously referred to as DBHD-15, but more accurately known as DE-15.
