  • Binder 79-3490-35-12 | M12 | A-coded series 763, length 5 m open end
Note
All inputs (DigIn 1 .. DigIn 4 and GND Opto-coupler) are galvanically isolated from the camera electronics.

The level of the digital inputs can be changed between TTL and mvPLC via the registry "LineFormat".

Characteristics of the digital outputs

Characteristics min. nom. max. Unit
VCC_HSD supply for the high side outputs 10.5 28 V
UDIG_OUT_HIGH / Digital output, IOUT = 0.5 A VCC_HSD - 1 VCC_HSD - 1.4 V
IOH / High-level output current (short circuit) 0.7 mA
tON Turn-On time 20 us
tR Rise time 8 us
tOFF Turn-Off time 30 us

Furthermore, the digital outputs feature:

  • Current limitation
  • Short circuit protection
Note
Each output has a short circuit protection between 1 A and 1.7 A (generally 1.3 A). So if you combine two outputs with one load, the short circuit protection can have an effect.

Rescue mode Short red blink (1 s) indicades that the camera operates in the rescue mode in combination with one of the listed states (explanation above):
  • White on
  • Green on
  • Blue on
  • Bright blue on
  • Yellow on
Under voltage Slow red blink (2 s)

LAN LED

This LED shows link and activity of the network interface. I.e.

  • A luminous LED indicates an established link.
  • The color indicates the link speed.
  • A flashing LED indicates activity.

Undervoltage detection

The mvBlueCOUGAR-XT offers a circuit which detects undervoltages. If the power supply voltage becomes insufficient to operate the camera steadily, the camera will change to the undervoltage mode. That means:

  • The camera cannot be reached via Ethernet anymore.
  • The camera's outputs are switched off.
  • The State LED shows the state "Undervoltage".
  • The Network LED shows the state "No link".
  • The fan (if connected) is turned off.
  • The camera will be in this state until the power supply is disconnected and reconnected.
