DVT Isolation Breakout Board


This document provides information about the new DVT Isolation Breakout Board (DVT part
number CON-IBOB) available for use with the Legend Series SmartImage Sensors. An image of
the isolation breakout board is shown below.

Features
The isolation breakout board for the Legend Series not only provides a convenient method to
connect digital I/O, power, and strobe illumination lines; but it also allows for the use of isolation
modules. It contains two sets of terminals: one that is directly connected to the SmartImage
Sensor, and one that allows for the use of isolation modules.
The port on the right (see diagram) includes I/O, strobe and power screw-down terminals. The
I/O lines on this port are to be used when isolation is not needed. Typical examples of the use of
this port are the strobe lights. Not only strobe lights do not require any isolation from the system
but they require very accurate timing. The use of isolation modules adds a very small delay to
the signals (in the order of the microseconds depending on the specific module used) which in
most cases is irrelevant (i.e. inspection results). However, the strobe lights must be on exactly
while exposure lasts. This is why DVT recommends that strobe lights be connected to the non-
isolated terminals. This set of terminals is always enabled, regardless of the use of isolation
modules. The output line labeled IO8, corresponding to the SmartImage Sensor I/O 8, is mapped
to two different pins because this is usually the output selected for strobe lights. By using two
different pins for this I/O line users can connect 2 strobe lights that would respond to the same
signal. The terminals that are repeated (24V, GND) are interconnected so whether we provide
the power via the jack, or either set of terminals, the functionality will be the same and the
remaining terminals become available for use as a power source. See the diagrams at the end of
this document for information on sinking/sourcing connections using this set of terminals.
The second port, the one on the left side (see diagram) has the I/O connections to be used in
conjunction with isolation modules. These terminals are inactive unless isolation modules are
used. Users should decide which lines need isolation and install the corresponding modules (input
or output) for those lines only. These modules can be used to provide power isolation when

working with devices that are using a separate power supply. The optional isolation modules can
be acquired from third-party companies.
Isolation Modules
The isolation modules should be installed in the center region of the breakout board (see
diagram). The breakout board is designed for G-4 type isolation modules. Specific part numbers
depend on the power supply of the device to connect to. For instance, to interface with an
external device running on 24 V, the OPTO 22 G4 IDC5 module can be used as an input isolation
module and the Grayhill 70G-ODC5 can be used as an output isolation module. The first one is
capable of handling voltages between 10V and 32V, and outputs a 5V logic signal to the isolation
breakout board which is converted to the appropriate voltage and sent as an input to the
SmartImage Sensor. The second one takes in the 5V logic signal from the breakout board and is
rated at 60VDC and 3.5A on the output side, so a device running on 24 V DC can be connected
on that end. These are just examples of isolation modules; all major electronics distributors carry
many of these products.

Connections to isolation terminals


The connection between the isolation terminals of the breakout board and the external device is
very simple and independent of the type of input/output required for the external device (that is
NPN or PNP). The diagram below illustrates how the external devices should be connected to the
breakout board. The diagram shows part of an isolated breakout board, which contains only four
isolation modules at terminals IO4, IO5, IO7, and IO8. Notice that the external loads with their
power supply can be connected in either of the ways shown in the diagram.

example.

Specifications
The board is housed in a metal/plastic DIN Rail-mountable case with powder coating on top. The
breakout board is approximately 126mm wide by 149mm high by 45mm deep (including all
necessary cable clearances). The table below summarizes the features available from the
isolation breakout board and their purpose.
Features Purpose
Power Jack Included for the use of a 24V (1.42 A) wall-mount power supply.
It should only be used for demonstration and laboratory
purposes.
Power Terminals There are three main power terminals (V+, GND, Shield)
providing connections for an industrial power supply. There are
two additional pairs of V+ and GND terminals.
Non-isolated I/O Terminals Located on the right side of the board there are screw-down
terminals for the 8 I/O lines available on the Legend Series.
There is an extra terminal connected to I/O line 8 intended to
provide one more output for a strobe illumination. This output will
be activated during image exposure only if it is configured in
FrameWork as the Strobe output.
Isolated I/O Terminals Located on the left side of the board, these are to be used in
combination with isolation modules.
Isolation modules slots There are 8 screw-down slots for input or output isolation
modules.
15 pin high density D-sub This provides connection to the I/O and power lines of the
plug Legend Series systems which use a 10-pin keyed RJ-45 port.

Connection diagrams for the isolation terminals


The following diagrams illustrate four different methods to connect the SmartImage Sensor to
external devices using the set of terminals that can be isolated by installing isolation modules in
each. These setups are just suggestions, refer to the documentation of the external device you
are using and that of the isolation modules you are using to ensure compatibility.
