Camera Link Expansion Board for Tau 2
The Tau Camera is powered through the mini-USB connector with a nominal draw of 250mA at 5VDC for both the camera and the accessory. There is a peak startup draw of 500mA. The camera uses serial communication at either 57600 or 921600 Baud by creating a virtual COM Port on your computer for USB communications. The Baud Rate is selected using auto-Baud and the camera will communicate at the first Baud Rate in which it receives a command until it is powered off.
