QHY600 Pro - Trigger Function
« on: April 26, 2021, 01:22:17 PM »
I have a QHY600 professional version camera, and I was wondering if there was any information on how to create a gated input to match another timed event. I need to capture a specific time frame corresponding to when another event happens. For example, a machine that pulses on and off when in operation and sends a signal when it is on or off, is there a way for the QHY600 Pro camera to read this information and only capture during the time when the machine is on?

I looked into the GPIO from the Spec Sheet which said ?(Pro Version Only) 4PIN, high speed with flexible FPGA control. Can be used as trigger in/out, multiple camera sync capture control, high precision GPS time measurement etc? but found no more information. How would I use this GPIO, and would this relate to this timing trigger?
