This guide will walk you through the steps required to correctly enable output triggers in NAVconfig.
For xbns-based units such as RT3000 v3 and RT1003 v2, you can configure up to 2 output triggers following the instructions below:
1. If starting a new configuration from scratch, skip through each tab by clicking "Next" until you reach the Interfaces > Ethernet tab. If modifying an existing configuration, it is possible to jump directly to the Ethernet tab.
If you wish to enable the output of NCOM packets generated by the triggers, for example to monitor the triggers in real-time using NAVdisplay, tick the option "On camera output trigger" for either trigger, otherwise leave all the boxes unticked.
Trigger data will be logged in the RD file even if no box has been ticked.
2. In the Interfaces > PPS/Triggers tab, complete the triggers settings by selecting "Output trigger" from the drop-down menu for Trigger 1, Trigger 2 or both.
3. To set the amount of meters in between output pulses, select a ppm value from the drop-down list or type in the chosen value in the text box.
The maximum output rate for the RT is 1 ppm therefore the minimum configurable distance between triggers is 1 meter.
4. If a warning message in red appears after enabling the output trigger, navigate back to the Ethernet tab and double check that none of the input trigger options have been ticked for either trigger.
Go back to the PPS/Triggers tab - the red warning message should no longer be present.
5. Commit the configuration to the unit.
