Matrox RadientPro CL-DB connectors and signal names



This section serves as a reference to match Matrox RadientPro CL-DB 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 RadientPro CL family members have a different number of acquisition paths and auxiliary/camera control signals. For each Matrox Radient CL family member, only the auxiliary/camera control signals associated with the following digitizer device numbers are supported:

Matrox RadientPro CL type

Digitizer device #

Matrox RadientPro CL-DB

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 RadientPro CL-DB

M_DEV0

Auxiliary I/O connector A and some on C

M_DEV1

Auxiliary I/O connector C and some on A

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 RadientPro CL-DB board and cable adapter bracket provide several interface connectors. On the bracket of Matrox RadientPro CL-DB, there are two Camera Link video input connectors and one auxiliary I/O connector. On the cable adapter bracket there are two external auxiliary I/O connector, one of which is unused.

Only the following connectors have auxiliary signals with matching MIL information.

Description

Camera Link video input connectors

SDR (0 and 1)

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 RadientPro CL-DB.

External auxiliary I/O connector

DBHD-15 (A and C)

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 connector A is located on Matrox RadientPro CL-DB board, and external auxiliary I/O connector C is located on the cable adapter bracket.
