General Purpose I/O (GPIO) Lines#

The General Purpose I/O (GPIO) lines of your Basler camera can be configured to operate as input or output lines.


Common Tasks#

Task Feature
Specifying whether you want the GPIO line to operate as an input, output, or input-output line Line Mode
Determining the current status of one or all GPIO lines (high / low) Line Status
Configuring triggered image acquisition Triggered Image Acquisition
Selecting an output signal for a GPIO line Line Source
Inverting all input or output signals (high -> low, low -> high) Line Inverter
Setting the line connection for a GPIO line Line Connection
Enabling a termination resistor for the camera's differential GPIO line Line Termination
