How do I synchronize SAGA with external devices?

You can synchronize SAGA with external devices via the SYNC OUT port.

Synchronization Interface

SAGA can be synchronized with an external device in different ways. One way is to send triggers to the DIGI input of SAGA. The logic output appears on bit 5 of the STATUS channel.

Another way is via the SYNC OUT of SAGA. By default, the SYNC OUT is configured in ‘Event Marker’ mode, meaning that a synchronization pulse is sent out each time the Event marker button on SAGA is pressed. Alternatively, SYNC OUT can be configured as a clocked pulse via the application software interface. In this mode the ‘Synchronization Out’ bit of the STATUS channel reflects the output status of the SYNC OUT signal. The clocked pulse of the SYNC OUT port will always remain exactly in phase with the measurement data, therefore this pulse is suitable to achieve sample precise synchronization.

The SYNC OUT port requires a synchronization out cable which can be ordered via More details on the SYNC OUT port can be found in this article.
