Because of differing customer requirements, Vertilon's Sensor Interface Boards (SIBs) and the SDS232 do not include the 32 channel SIB cable that connects to the front panel of the PhotoniQ. This cable should be ordered separately in a length suitable for your application.
A 90cm high voltage cable is included with each high voltage module ordered, although other lengths can be separately purchased.
All SIB and high voltage cables can be used with any Vertilon sensor interface board and any 32 or 64 channel PhotoniQ model.
Sensor Interface Board Cables
SIB cables for sensor interface boards are offered in three standard lengths and in custom lengths up to 180 cm. One cable is needed for each sensor interface board in the system.
Typically, applications utilising an IQSP480 or IQSP580 require one SIB cable while those utilising an IQSP482 or IQSP582 require two.
If an SDS232 is used in place of a sensor interface board, a standard 48 cm length cable is available. Other cable lengths for the SDS232 can be special ordered.
High Voltage Power Supply
The HVPS series of high voltage power supplies is an upgrade option for all PhotoniQ multichannel data acquisition systems.
Fully controllable through the PhotoniQ graphical user interface and USB drivers, the HVPS option is available in -1000V versions (HVPS001, HVPS001M); -1500V versions (HVPS002, HVPS002M) and -100V versions (HVPS701, HVPS701M). They are therefore suitable for biasing PMTs, SiPMs and APD arrays without the need for additional external equipment. All come equipped with a 90cm cable for connection to any one of Vertilon’s sensor interface boards.
The “non M” versions of the product include an industry standard SHV plug on one end of the cable for direct connection to the front panel of the PhotoniQ. Connection to the sensor interface board is made using a specialised proprietary low-profile connector on the other end.
The “M” versions of the product are for OEM applications and are identical except that the SHV plug is replaced with a second proprietary connector for direct connection to the PhotoniQ printed circuit board.
All 64 channel versions of the PhotoniQ can be upgraded with up to two high voltage power supplies.

High Voltage Cables
Each high voltage module installed in a PhotoniQ requires a high voltage cable to connect the HV output on the PhotoniQ front panel to the HV input on the sensor interface board. Connection to the PhotoniQ is made using an industry standard SHV high voltage plug.
For OEM applications the "P" version of the cable can be ordered. This uses a specialised low-profile connector to make a direct connection to the PhotoniQ printed circuit board.
For all versions, the SIB's high voltage connection is made with the same specialised connector.
Each high voltage module ordered includes one 90 cm high voltage cable. Extra high voltage cables are available in three standard lengths and in custom lengths up to 180 cm.
Vertilon's SIB1632 16- to 32-channel merge cable can also be used to connect two interface boards to a single HV module.
These high quality accessory cables are used to connect trigger and preamp output signals from Vertilon sensor interface boards to a PhotoniQ data acquisition system or other laboratory instrument. The cables are also compatible with the SDS232 distribution system for single element sensors.

16- to 32-channel Interconnect Cable
The SIB1632 is a simple accessory that combines the signals from two Vertilon 16 channel Sensor Interface Boards (SIB) onto a single 32 channel output SIB connector.
The connector conforms to Vertilon’s standard, low-noise, multi-channel, cable interconnection system. It mates to a micro-coaxial cable assembly that connects 32 PMT outputs to a PhotoniQ multichannel data acquisition system.
