View Full Version : External trigger at high frequency

April 21, 2015, 17:27:34

we are using a DMK 41BF02.H camera which needs to be synchronized to a continously running process. Therefore we want to use the external trigger input. The frame rate of the camera is by far sufficient, but the signal we want to synchronize with, has a frequency of about 5kHz and a pulse length of 10µs.
Now the question is, does the camera synchronize correctly to such a signal which is significantly higher than the possible frame-rate or do we need to divide that signal to a lower frequency? I read through the white paper about "Trigger and I/O", but couldn´t find an answer.

Thanks for your help!

Kind regards,

Dear Oliver

The camera can not synchronize to a trigger frequency above its frame rate.
