The CVX TriggerBox was developed by STEMMER IMAGING to allow signals from
different sources such as frame grabbers or PLCs to be processed and to
provide an easy method of cleaning up imprecise or inadequate trigger signals.
Problems frequently arise when a camera is unable to process an imprecise
trigger signal. As far as the camera is concerned, either no trigger is
detected or triggers are only detected sporadically. In either case, this can
result in the system capturing images that are not required, or images being
missed completely which may then lead to error messages from the imaging
system. These problems are often due to trigger signals generated by light
barriers, PLC controllers or similar systems.
The CVX TriggerBox is able to process input signals from 5V DC to 24V DC which
can then used to generate a clean TTL pulse as a trigger signal for the
camera. The user can set whether the TriggerBox should to react to the
positive or negative edge of the input trigger as desired.
