    I/O Toolbox tools The I/O Toolbox is a configurable interconnection of tools that generates events (usually triggers) from input lines. The composition of the toolset is product- and firmware-dependent.
    • Line Input tool (LIN): Edge detector delivering events on rising or falling edges of any selected input line.
    • Quadrature Decoder tool (QDC): A composite tool including:
      • A quadrature edge detector delivering events on selected transitions of selected pairs of input lines.
      • An optional backward motion compensator for clean line-scan image acquisition when the motion is unstable.
      • A 32-bit up/down counter for delivering a position value.
    • Divider tool (DIV): to generate an event every nth input events from any I/O toolbox event source.
    • Multiplier/divider tool (MDV): to generate m events every d input events from any I/O toolbox event source.
    • Delay tool (DEL): to delay up to 16 events from one or two I/O toolbox event sources, by a programmable time or number of motion encoder ticks (any QDC events).
    • User Actions Scheduler tool (UAS): to delegate the execution of User Actions at a scheduled time or encoder position. Possible user actions include setting low/high/toggle any bit of the User Output Register or generation of any User Events.
    I/O Toolbox composition Firmware-dependent I/O toolbox composition:
    • 1-camera: 8 LIN, 1 QDC, 1 DIV, 1 MDV, 2 DEL, 1 UAS
    • 2-camera: 8 LIN, 1 QDC, 1 DIV, 1 UAS
    • 1-line-scan: 8 LIN, 1 QDC, 1 DIV, 1 MDV, 2 DEL, 1 UAS
