View Full Version : Use of GP_in and GP_out

March 19, 2009, 16:10:32
I have DFK 21BF04 and DFK 21BUC03 cameras to save image sequences. During LiveRun I need to capture a signal from a sensor (to stop the sequence recording). Can I connect the sensor (microphone, IR port, ...) to GP_in pin and read the status of CP_out between frames? Or what are the pins GP_in and GP_out for?

Thanks, EHi

Hello EHi,

yes, you can do so, that is how the GP I/O was intended to be used for. Please keep in mind, the connectors are open drain connectors. I think, a microphone can not be connected to the digital input.
