More than 255 triggers

Post by richard-j » Tue Feb 21, 2012 12:07 am


I have to run an experiment where i use more than 255 triggers. So i need to be able to send signal in more than 8 bits. What would the best option be for this particular problem? Maybe i should introduce two consecutive triggers? Something else?

Thank you.

Use all 16 trigger inputs for 65,535 different triggers, see You may need to make a new trigger cable, in the standard Presentation cables only triggers lines 1-8 are connected, see
