Digital and Analogue Outputs
The outputs on connectors OUT1 and OUT2 can be used either as frequency/pulse digital outputs or as analogue outputs that can be configured to represent any of the following parameters:
- Longitudinal Acceleration
- Lateral Acceleration
- Slip Angle
- Pitch Angle
- Roll Angle
For digital outputs, you can adjust the scale and maximum output values in the VBOX Setup Software or via the controls on the front panel. For velocity, you control the outputs by setting the maximum velocity and the pulses per metre. For the other parameters, the scale and maximum values can be controlled by setting the maximum frequency and the angle or acceleration value to which this relates. Please note that the digital outputs do not show the direction of angles and accelerations, only their magnitudes. Therefore “negative” angles or accelerations will be shown in the same way as their positive equivalents.
For analogue outputs, you can set the values relating to the maximum voltage (+5V) and minimum voltage (0 for Velocity, –5V for all other channels), via the front panel or in the VBOX Setup Software. The negative voltage capability of the analogue outputs allows the direction of angles and accelerations to be output.
