Digital I/Os - Pin Header

As already mentioned in the introduction, there are two ways to access the camera's digital I/Os: using an internal pin header or an external Hirose connector. To access the internal pin header please open the cameras backplane. You will find connectors as illustrated by the drawings below. Please assemble a cable that fits your application.

The pin header consists of 2x8 pins with a pitch of 2.00 x 2.00 mm. The cable's pinout is in the table below.

Important: Please note that only FireWire cameras provide a power supply at Pin 3 and 4. In the case of USB cameras these pins are open.
