Avantes spectrometers feature great flexibility, offering multiple Input/Output connections. These IO can be used with Avasoft 8 (Time Series) or with customized applications. The DEVKITs are designed to make life easier in the development stage. Instead of fabricating or soldering a cable with the right connections, you can now easily connect using the screw terminals.
The AVS-DEVKIT-AS5216 contains the PCB-IO-EXT-BES Printed Circuit Board. This board has several screw terminals for easy connectivity to the IO points, a BNC connector for the input trigger as well a push-button for manual control.
All outputs have a LED indicating their status (selectable with jumpers). Furthermore, RS232 connectors are provided. For the ASC version a power, USB, and SYNC connector are on the PCB. The PCB-IO-EXT-BES will be connected to the AvaSpec-ULS or AvaSpecULSi IO Connector with an interface cable.
Since the AS-7010 and the AS-5216 electronic boards share the same IO connections, the AVS-DEVKIT-AS5216 can also be used in combination with the AS-7010 electronics board.
