Basler GP-I/O Cable, HRS 6p/open, P#

Input/Output (I/O) cable for connecting to the direct-coupled GPIO pins (GPIO, GPIO Ground) of the 6-pin connector of ace USB 3.0 camera models. For ace GigE camera models (with GPIO) the cable connects to the direct-coupled GPIO pin (GPIO, GPIO Ground) and the camera power pin of the 6-pin connector.

Basler GP-I/O Cable 6p/Open, P


The cable is suitable for the following camera models:

  • ace USB 3.0
  • ace GigE (only models with GPIO)
Order Number Cable Length
2000034087 10 m

CAUTION – Personal Injury Hazard

Personal injury hazard and risk of damage to camera in case of short circuits (applies to GigE cameras only)

Short circuits may cause an extreme rise in temperature of the camera's housing. This may damage the camera and may also lead to personal injuries, e.g., burns if touching the housing. In the worst case, the overheating may cause a fire. In order to prevent that, you should take additional measures to limit the current flowing through each individual wire during a short circuit. The maximum current allowed is 2 A. There are two ways how to do this:

  • Using a fuse
  • Using a limited power supply

Wiring Information#

Pin Number Wire Color USB 3.0 Cameras GigE Cameras with GPIO
1 Brown GPIO (Line 3) Camera Power
2 n/a Not connected Not connected
3 Yellow GPIO (Line 4) GPIO (Line 3)
4 n/a Not connected Not connected
5 n/a Not connected Not connected
6 White/Green GPIO Ground Camera Power Ground / GPIO Ground


To achieve the best possible signal-to-noise ratio, both GPIO ground wires have to be connected to ground. Additionally, if you're not using one of the GPIO lines, connect the wire of that GPIO line to ground as well.
