Note 1. The PIXCI® EL1DB(Rev7+) Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's PCI Express x1 Gen 2 bus. The bandwidth is sufficient for a single camera, but may not be sufficient for multiple cameras sharing a single PIXCI® EL1DB(Rev7+) Frame Grabber. (The PCI Express x1 Gen 2 bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 413 MByte/sec.) Consider a PIXCI® E4DB, PIXCI® E8DB, or PIXCI® E4G2-4B frame grabber, using the PCI Express x4, PCI Express x8, or PCI Express x4 Gen 2 bus, as an alternative.

Note 2. The PIXCI® EL1DB Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's PCI Express x1 bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the PCI Express x1 bus. (The PCI Express x1 bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.) Consider a PIXCI® E4DB, PIXCI® E8DB, or PIXCI® E4G2-4B frame grabber, using the PCI Express x4, PCI Express x8, or PCI Express x4 Gen 2 bus, as an alternative.

Note 3. The PIXCI® EL1 Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's PCI Express x1 bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the PCI Express x1 bus. (The PCI Express x1 bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.) Consider a PIXCI® EL1(Rev7+), PIXCI® E4, PIXCI® E8, or PIXCI® E4G2-2F frame grabber, using the PCI Express x1 Gen 2, PCI Express x4, PCI Express x8, or PCI Express x4 Gen 2 bus, as an alternative.

Note 4. The PIXCI® ECB2 Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's ExpressCard/54 bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the ExpressCard/54 bus. (The ExpressCard bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.)

Note 5. The PIXCI® ECB1-34 Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's ExpressCard/34 bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the ExpressCard/34 bus. (The ExpressCard bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.)

Note 6. The PIXCI® miniH2b Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's PCI Express Mini x1 Gen 2 bus. The bandwidth is sufficient for a single camera, but may not be sufficient for multiple cameras sharing a single PIXCI® miniH2b Frame Grabber. (The PCI Express mini x1 Gen 2 bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 413 MByte/sec.)

Note 7. The PIXCI® EB1mini Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's PCI Express Mini x1 bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the PCI Express Mini x1 bus. (The PCI Express mini x1 bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.)

Note 8. The PIXCI® EB1-PoCL Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's PCI Express x1 bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the PCI Express x1 bus. (The PCI Express x1 bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.)

Note 9. The PIXCI® EB1 Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's PCI Express x1 bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the PCI Express x1 bus. (The PCI Express x1 bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.)

Note 10. The PIXCI® EC1 Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's ExpressCard/54 bus. The capture resolution (AOI) must be reduced to allow operation within the limits of the ExpressCard/54 bus. (The ExpressCard bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.)
