Trigger System Product Description
This is some text inside of a div block.The trigger system based on NI cRIO™ technology features an on-board FPGA which offers the ability to perform sophisticated count, reset, and re-trigger operations, all with hardware timing (rates up to 10MHz).
The typical system consists of a NI cRIO-9076 chassis with an integrated controller with NI 9401.8 channel TTL i/o card. Additional slots are available for expansion to other sensor types.
Re-trigger functions are performed by custom LabVIEW™ software running onboard. Re-trigger function can also be performed using settings passed to the system from a user application running on a laptop, connecting to the NI cRIO™ through the ethernet jack.
This platform has been deployed to manage the timing of automotive thermal imaging systems. These thermal imaging systems were used for engine monitoring in an unforgiving environment. Our Trigger System offers a simple, robust solution to hardware timing control.
