Q10093 iDSC 1816 synchronization header

Tags: Help, iDSC 1816, synchronization

Applies to: iDSC

What is the hardware I need to synchronize multiple iDSC 1816 boards in the same PC?

A 10-pin male header J3 on the iDSC 1816 allows synchronization of several iDSC boards in the same PC. A synchronization cable can be built using directly wired ribbon cable. The header is compatible with the female connector (socket) from 3M, part number 3473-6610. It has 10 pins in two rows with a 2.54mm pitch.

Microstar provides the synchronization cable MSCBL078 for connecting to header J3 on the iDSC 1816.
