1 Introduction
This document describes the functionality of the LucidControl AO4 USB module generating
4 analog voltages or currents controllable via Universal Serial Bus.
A basic description of the complete LucidControl product family can be found in the
document LucidControl User Manual.
This document concentrates on the specific topics of the analog output module which is
described here with all its details. In order to set up the module in a fast way please see the
LucidControl AO4 One Sheet Manual
which provides all information necessary to start working with the module out of the box
without reading lots of documentation.
2 Hardware
Fig. 1 shows the sketch of the Analog Output AO4 module
with 4 analog voltage or current outputs.
All LucidControl modules have two connectors, one USB
connector and an IO- Connector which makes it easy to
setup them.
While the upper USB connector is used for interconnection
with the computer, the lower IO-Connector is used for
inputs and outputs.
The IO Connector provides 8 terminals in total - two for
each output.

2.2 Interface and Interconnection
2.2.1 USB Connection
LucidControl USB modules are connected to the computer by using a standard USB cable
which must not extend a length of 5 m. They are “bus powered” which means that the host
computer supplies the module with power.
LucidControl AO4 module is rated with a maximum current of 250 mA.
Note:
Supplying USB devices with power is not critical using a desktop computer or notebooks
but it must be considered that the total power of one USB port is limited to 500 mA.
Note:
The USB ports of the Raspberry Pi® are limited to a current of 100 mA. This must be taken
into account when the outputs of the AO4 module are used for sourcing loads. In the case
that the module interfaces high resistive loads, up to two devices can be connected to the
Raspberry Pi without the necessity of an active USB-Hub.
Note:
Using an active USB-Hub with its own power supply allows the connection of additional
devices in the case that the host is not able to supply them.

2.2.2.1 4 Voltage Outputs
The voltage output module shown in Fig. 3 consists of 4 independent
voltage sources as they are shown in Fig. 4.
The positive outputs are connected to the terminals 1, 3, 5 and 7 of the
IO Connector. The remaining terminals 2, 4, 6, 8 are connected to
ground.

2.2.2.2 2 Floating Voltage Outputs
All 4 voltage outputs share a common ground. A floating output
can be achieved by connecting the outputs as shown in Fig. 5. In
the picture two of the 4 independent voltage sources are
connected in series.
Voltage output modules providing positive and negative voltages
e.g. LCTR-AO4-12-S are able to double their output voltage. By
connecting this module as shown in Fig. 5 can create voltages in
the range of -24V to +24V.

2.3 Setup of Hard- and Software
Setting up LucidControl hardware is extremely easy:
1 Ensure that no signal is applied to the IO Connector
2 Connect LucidControl via USB with the computer
3 Applies for Microsoft windows only: The system asks for an installation file. This is
not a driver but only an information file (INF). The file can be downloaded from our
website www.lucid-control.com/downloads
4 That’s all. LucidControl switches the green power LED on and the module is ready
for usage.
2.3.1 Windows
As mentioned the installation under Microsoft Windows requires the information file.
After finished installation the Windows Device Manager contains a new serial port (COM).
The module can be accessed using this port.
Note:
Even if more than one module is connected to a computer Windows ensures that the same
serial port number is assigned to the module(s) after restart.
2.3.2 Linux
Despite to Windows installation under Linux the module is usable immediately after
connection without any additional steps. Linux installs /dev/ttyACM devices for any
module connected to the computer.
Note:
By default Linux cannot ensure that the same /dev/ttyACM device is assigned to the same
module on restart. But as long as only one module is connected to the computer it is
ensured that it is accessible via /dev/ttyACM0.
This problem can be solved by the LucidIoCtrl command line tool which can create static
devices always pointing to a specific module. Moreover the device can be given useful
names e.g. dev/digitalIoKitchen.

2.3.3 Get command line LucidIoCtrl
LucidIoCtrl command line tool can be downloaded from our website:
www.lucid-control.com/downloads
This page provides the command line tool LucidIoCtrl for different architectures.
After downloading the program can be stored in a folder of choice.
Please see the section 3 of the general LucidControl User Manual for more information
about this helpful tool.
2.3.4 Ready to Start
After the module was installed successfully (if it was necessary at all) the green Power LED
is switched on signaling that the module is ready for use.
Since the module was preconfigured for standard output mode, it can be used without
further configuration. The following examples demonstrate the functionality of the module
by using the LucidIoCtrl command line tool.

3 Module Operation
The LucidControl AO4 Analog Output Module generates 4 independent output voltage or
current signals.
The Hardware of the AO4 module consists of 2
independent DAC (Digital Analog Converter). By
multiplexing each DAC, 4 output voltages or currents are
created in total.
Fig. 7 illustrates the output processing in standard mode.
Each of the two DAC is responsible for the generation of
two analog output signals.
Fig. 7 Output Processing
The processing of both DAC channels is operating in
parallel the same way. For simplicity only the processing
of one DAC is shown in Fig. 7.
The lower diagram in Fig. 7 shows the DAC output signals – a higher for output 1, a lower
voltage for output 2.
The upper diagram depicts the timing sequence of the output multiplexing and refreshing
algorithm for each DAC.
After the DAC set the updated voltage of output 1 and TSetup has passed the output
multiplexer applies the signals to the output circuit. TSetup is a guard time preventing to
overwrite the stable voltage of the last refresh cycle.
The voltage is applied to the output circuit for the time TRefresh. After refreshing has
completed, the DAC generates the updated signals of output 2. Output 2 is processed the
same way as output 1 was.
The refreshing algorithm repeats periodically after TInterval has passed.
Even if TSetup, TRefresh and TInterval can be adjusted for each output channel independently,
this should only be taken into account if it is necessary since changing these parameters
may have unexpected consequences like skipped output channels or high voltage ripple.
The relevant IO Configuration Parameters are outAnSetupTime (see 3.4.5),
outAnRefreshTime (see 3.4.4) and outAnRefreshInterval (see 3.4.3).
At any time it is possible to restore the default values of changed parameters.

LucidControl AO4, User Manual
2015-03-02
3.1 Operation Modes
3.1.1 Inactive Mode
Setting an output to inactive mode disables processing of the output and sets the output
voltage to minimum value (e.g. 0 V).
Setting an output to Inactive Mode does not suspend the output processing and
refreshing but forces the output voltage to minimum value.
3.1.2 Standard Mode
In standard mode the processing of the analog output is executed as described in section
3.
3.2 Offset Compensation
In some cases it is necessary to compensate an offset signal by adding a value to the
output voltage or current.
The signed value of the IO Configuration Parameter outAnOffset (see 3.4.6) is added to the
output signal and allows an offset correction.
3.3 Commands
Accessing inputs and outputs is a very common task which is mostly identical for all
LucidControl modules. For this task output modules provide the commands SetIo for
writing a single value and SetIoGroup for writing a group of values of the same type.
The command GetIo supports reading of the state of a single output value while
GetIoGroup reads a group of output values of the same type.
For more comprehensive information covering reading and writing of inputs and outputs
please see the sections 3.2.1.1, 3.2.1.2 and 4.3 of the general LucidControl manual.
The following sections describe in detail the commands which are supported by the AO4
module.
3.3.1 SetIo

By using outAnValue an output value can be made persistent. In this case the stored
voltage or current level is restored after a restart of the module.
Note:
For normal operation it is recommended to use the functions SetIo (see 0) and GetIo (3.3.3)
in order to access the output channel value.
