Basler Power-I/O PLC+ Cable 6p/open, P#

Power-I/O cable for PLC with HRS 6-pin connector and open end.

Power I/O Cable for PLC, HRS 6p/Open


The Power-I/O-PLC+ cables with Hirose 6-pin connector and open end feature an integrated PLC+ electronic board.

The key feature of this board is that it is able to adjust input voltage levels coming from PLC devices (up to 24 V) to the TTL voltage levels required by the camera (0 to 5 V). The table below contrasts these different voltage levels.

In addition, the PLC+ electronic board protects the power supply of the camera as well as the input and output lines of the camera against the following:

  • Reverse polarity
  • Turn-on voltage spikes
  • Positive or negative overvoltage spikes

The cables also offer protection of the signal transmission as well as the power supply against EMI and ESD. This is achieved by means of twisted pair cables in which each pair of wires carries just one signal: one wire carries the signal itself and the other is the signal's own return conductor.

Camera I/O Signal Voltage PLC+ Cable Input Voltage Description
Max. 24 VDC Max. 24 VDC + 10 % Operating voltage limit.
0–1.4 VDC 0–8.4 VDC Voltage indicates a logical 0.
>1.4–2.2 VDC >8.4–10.4 VDC Logical state is undefined.
>2.2 VDC >10.4 VDC Voltage indicates a logical 1.

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#
