When attaching this Interface, please use proper personal grounding (or grounding wrist strap) to prevent static damage to the module.
Video Power Communication (VPC) Transistor-Transistor Logic Interface Module
With the intelligent polarity sensing protection, power can be provided via the USB connection or DC Voltage using the provided 6-Pin Video/Power cable or the 7-Pin Pico Blade cable.
3 Video Output Options
Video can be viewed through either the supplied JST to USB/Video cable, JST to Bare End Lead cable or 7-Pin Pico Blade to Bare End Lead cable.
Either video output can be changed to provide Sync Input/Output, via a jumper on the back of the RHP-VPC-TTL Board.
Control is maintained over USB or 3.3V TTL signals. This makes TTL Support available for any project integration.
*Please Note: External Sync is disabled on Boson <9 Hz Cameras.
The use of external sync on these cameras is not supported because pulses cannot be correlated to a specific output frame because of the way the reduced frame rate video is created. If attempted, the camera will reject commands to begin external sync mode.

Interface Assemblies Frequently Asked Questions
The FLIR Boson requires at least one interface board to allow Power and acquire Video from it's high-density connector.
The most popular board in our product list is the Low Profile VPC module. It allows for power input, streaming USB and composite analog video as well as controlling the cameras settings.
A complete list of accessories are available at: https://www.oemcameras.com/boson_accessories.
For video acquisition and control you will need to use the Boson Controller GUI 3.0 available from Teledyne FLIR.
With the RHP Boson interface boards, you may also use the RHP Boson GUI.
If the USB Sensor in the Teledyne FLIR Boson is not triggered (on startup) with the proper voltage for USB-3, it will default to USB-2.
There are three ways to correct this.
- Disconnect the device from the PC and reconnect.
- When powering from a PC, it is best to connect USB-3 after the computer has booted up.
- In some cases, the RHP-BOS-VPC3-IF can be modified to disable the voltage protection.
