Basler Opto-GP-I/O Y-Cable, HRS 6p/open, P, 2 x 10 m#

Input/Output (I / O) cable with a Hirose 6-pin connector at one end (camera side) and two open-ended cables at the other end (host side).

Basler Opto-GP-I/O Y-Cable, HRS 6p/open, P, 2 x 10 m


The cable is suitable for the following camera models:

  • ace USB 3.0
  • ace GigE
Order Number Cable Length
2000034088 2 x 10 m

Depending on the camera model, the wires in the cable with the yellow outer jacket connect to different pins of the camera:

Camera Model Wires Connect to
ace USB 3.0
ace GigE (with GPIO)
Direct-coupled general purpose I/O (GPIO) pins (GPIO, GPIO Ground) of the camera
ace GigE (without GPIO) Power supply of the camera

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

2 Brown Opto-isolated IN (Line 1)
3 n/a n/a
4 Yellow Opto-isolated OUT (Line 2)
5 White/Green Opto-isolated Ground
6 n/a n/a

1 Brown GPIO (Line 3) Camera Power
2 n/a n/a n/a
3 Yellow GPIO (Line 4) GPIO (Line 3)

4 n/a n/a n/a
5 n/a n/a n/a
6 White/Green GPIO Ground Camera Power Ground
GPIO Ground (only models with GPIO)


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