How Do I Set a Trigger Delay on a Frame Grabber?
I have a frame grabber with trigger inputs. I would like to have the frame grabber delay the triggered event after the trigger has been received. The help for the IMAQ Configure Trigger3 VI says the delay is only supported on the Smart Camera. How can I configure a delay on my frame grabber?
There is no direct way to configure a delay on a frame grabber with the IMAQ Configure Trigger3 VI. This feature is only available on the Smart Camera. However there is a workaround that will give you the same functionality. The IMAQ Generate Pulse3 VI will allow you to include a delay. Using this VI as an intermediate step, you can achieve trigger delay functionality by following the steps below:
Note: There is no physical wiring needed, this will all be done on the card automatically. The frame grabber will generate the pulse and watch for it on the same RTSI line.
