The GigE Trigger device controls single- or multi-camera setups, eliminating the need for hardware triggers and simplifying cable requirements. Featuring multiple input/output ports, these devices can eliminate the need for PLC controllers by combining sensor information with machine vision applications.
The device has 8 inputs and 8 outputs. It evaluates input signals for realtime control of additional process steps. To trigger GigE cameras directly, these devices are equipped with a three-port switch – one port controls the internal trigger signals, the second port is connected to the camera, and the third port transfers the images to the PC.
