When combining lighting, cameras, proximity sensors and encoders to generate an automated solution, the CC320 Trigger Timing Controller is the single component for fast affordable integration. With 8 independent input channels, the controller can take a range of input signals from various components and use these to trigger events on any of the 8 independent output channels.
Each of the 8 output channels can be individually programmed offering complete control over the pulse delay and pulse width, as well as a trigger delay enabling filtering of noisy trigger signals. In applications where encoders are connected to the input channels, outputs can be configured as functions of encoder pulses rather than absolute time values, creating a very versatile solution.
Gardasoft Trigger Timing Controller overview
Ethernet enabled as standard, the CC320 can be quickly configured using our free software which can be downloaded from this page, or even simply by accessing the controller via your internet browser; type in the IP address for the controller into your browser and you have full access to all of the parameters. If you are using a third party software package the CC320 has a simple command set that is detailed in the manual allowing easy communication. As will all Gardasoft products, all the settings are stored in non-volatile memory, and it will retain these settings even when the Ethernet connection is disconnected. The different ways the CC320 can be configured is endless. To give you an idea of how the CC320 can be utilised, please take a look at application note 937 which can be found from the downloaded link opposite. This application note highlights just some of the ways in which the CC320 has been utilised within machine vision applications.
