645df+ remote control

Postby NNN634637251932838829 » Tue Dec 02, 2014 8:43 am

I have a phaseone 645df+, a IQ180 DB and a Schneider Kreuznach 240mm f/4.5 LS AF.
This camera is used for scientific purpose, shooting every 10 s (miroir up), during 5 hours for each test.
It (the DB) is connected to a MacPro 2009 (firewire) to acquire the images (capture one).
The camera takes pictures of a mechanical device. This mechanical device is controlled by
a PC with LabView (national instrument) software.
My question is : I would like to make pictures only when my mechanical device is in some specific positions.
For that, I need to synchronize the 645df+ with my LabView software trough a USB E/S device (NI USB-6343).
The idea is to send to the 645df+ a "signal" through the NI USB-6343 (e/s electronic card) to make pictures, pictures that
are acquire by Capture One on the Mac Pro.
i) Which connector should is use on the DF645+ to do that? The "Electronic Shutter Release Contact" connector or the "Synchro Terminal"?
ii) Is it possible to have the full datasheets of the connector that I'll have to use ?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards

I think it be best if you created a support case and gave us the specifics.
We can ask the clever guys in production if they have any ideas. We've done custom cables for other applications so I'm sure if there's a will there's a way.

If you're in the US you're also welcome to touch base with us. We've worked with many industrial clients on one-off solutions like this:

I actually don't think the solution you're pursuing (remote control to trigger the body) is the easiest or most robust solution but I'd need to know more about your application to comment further.
