AX100 LIDAR™ V1 Interface
Cable & Power Management for LIDAR™ Sensor Heads


AX100 • LIDAR™ Interface Box

Feature Summary

  • Mixed I/O interface box, for DIN rail mount or wall mount
  • Cable & power management for LIDAR™ sensor heads
  • Intended for use with most of Velodyne LIDAR™ sensors e.g. HDL-32E, VLP-16, VLP-32C
  • Can replace the Velodyne LIDAR™ HDL-32E & VLP-16 interface box
  • Dimensions: 30 x 130 x 46mm3 (height/width/depth, horizontal front view)
  • Metal case
  • Several mounting options
  • Industrial type I/O connectors
  • Galvanic isolation for GPS and side band signals via optocouplers

Front Panel I/O
  • LIDAR - M12-A 8-pin male connector (Fast Ethernet, GPS, 12V), connects to LIDAR™ head
  • Sensor - M12-A 5-position female connector, connects to optional Magnetic Field Sensor, allows to control LIDAR 12V power
  • 100BASE-TX - RJ45 jack, connects the LIDAR™ head with the computer system
  • Control/Link - Dual Micro-D 9-position connector (GPS time input and connection to a secondary AX100 expansion box for 3D mapping)
  • +12V/GND/Shield - Anderson Powerpole® PP15-45 connectors as power input
  • 4-Fold LED array for I/O signals, another two LEDs for power

Power Requirements
  • DC Input, 12V
  • Powerpole® PP15-45 connectors (DC input)
  • Fast acting chip fuse (PCB soldered type - no replacement on-site)
  • Protected against reverse polarity and short circuit
  • M12-A connector (DC output to LIDAR™ head, switched by power FET)
  • Dedicated LEDs: +12V LIDAR™ power on & +5V AX100 internal power good

  • Suitable for Velodyne LIDAR™ sensors
  • Vehicle based surveillance and mapping
  • Industrial & robotics
  • Trucking
  • Autonomous test vehicles & ADAS
  • Customized design on request
  • Embedded Blue® AX120 LIDAR™ V2 Interface for Gigabit Ethernet heads e.g. Alpha Prime on request
