Digital I/O

As the name already implies, the roots of industrial cameras lie in industrial automation. In this context a camera is only a small component in a complex system. To be able to exchange signals with all the other components of this system, industrial USB cameras, FireWire cameras and GigE cameras often provide digital inputs and outputs (the so-called "Digital I/Os").

Important: The successful use of digital I/Os depends very much on how well various hardware and software components work together. Thus, working with digital I/Os should be left to experienced system engineers.
