Either the 50-pin Hirose (the native electrical connector used
Tau2) or the 30-pin SAMTEC connector of the Photon replicator board
(P/N 421-0045-00, an accessory item for Tau2) can provide RS-232
connectivity. The Photon Replicator Kit can be used in conjunction with
the legacy Photon I/O module to enable RS-232 connectivity via a DB-9
connector, as well as standard coaxial analog video and a power
connection. See the Tau
User’s Guide for more details.
FLIR also offers a low-profile adapter board called a
can be attached to the back of the Tau2 camera in order to give a user
access to camera input power, analog video output, and other functions
including RS-232 communications and digital data (LVDS) via a set of
solder pads. Note that use of the wearsaver requires a certain amount
of soldering skill on the part of the user. The Wearsaver part number
