Note 1. The PIXCI® EL1DB Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's PCI Express x1 bus. The bandwidth is sufficient for a single camera, but may not be sufficient for multiple cameras sharing a single PIXCI® EL1DB Frame Grabber. (The PCI Express x1 bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.) Consider a PIXCI® EL1DB(Rev7+), PIXCI® E4DB, PIXCI® EL1DB(Rev7+), or PIXCI® E8DB frame grabber, using the PCI Express x1 Gen 2, PCI Express x4, PCI Express x1 Gen 2, or PCI Express x8 bus, as an alternative.

Note 2. The PIXCI® ECB2 Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's ExpressCard/54 bus. The bandwidth is sufficient for a single camera, but may not be sufficient for multiple cameras sharing a single PIXCI® ECB2 Frame Grabber. (The ExpressCard bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.)

Note 3. The camera can operate in Base, Medium, or Full Camera Link modes; the PIXCI® E4TX2-4B Frame Grabber only supports the Base Camera Link mode. The capture taps (channels) and/or bits per pixel must be reduced to allow operation within the modes supported by the PIXCI® E4TX2-4B Frame Grabber.

Note 4. The camera can operate in Base, Medium, or Full Camera Link modes; the PIXCI® E4G2-4B Frame Grabber only supports the Base Camera Link mode. The capture taps (channels) and/or bits per pixel must be reduced to allow operation within the modes supported by the PIXCI® E4G2-4B Frame Grabber. Consider a PIXCI® E4G2-2F frame grabber as an alternative, supporting all of the camera's Camera Link modes.

Note 5. The camera can operate in Base, Medium, or Full Camera Link modes; the PIXCI® e104x4-4b Frame Grabber only supports the Base Camera Link mode. The capture taps (channels) and/or bits per pixel must be reduced to allow operation within the modes supported by the PIXCI® e104x4-4b Frame Grabber. Consider a PIXCI® e104x4-2f frame grabber as an alternative, supporting all of the camera's Camera Link modes.

Note 6. The camera can operate in Base, Medium, or Full Camera Link modes; the PIXCI® E8DB Frame Grabber only supports the Base Camera Link mode. The capture taps (channels) and/or bits per pixel must be reduced to allow operation within the modes supported by the PIXCI® E8DB Frame Grabber. Consider a PIXCI® E8 frame grabber as an alternative, supporting all of the camera's Camera Link modes.

Note 7. The camera can operate in Base, Medium, or Full Camera Link modes; the PIXCI® E4DB(Rev7+) Frame Grabber only supports the Base Camera Link mode. The capture taps (channels) and/or bits per pixel must be reduced to allow operation within the modes supported by the PIXCI® E4DB(Rev7+) Frame Grabber. Consider a PIXCI® E4(Rev7+), PIXCI® E8, or PIXCI® E4G2-2F frame grabber as an alternative, supporting all of the camera's Camera Link modes.

Note 8. The camera can operate in Base, Medium, or Full Camera Link modes; the PIXCI® E4DB Frame Grabber only supports the Base Camera Link mode. The capture taps (channels) and/or bits per pixel must be reduced to allow operation within the modes supported by the PIXCI® E4DB Frame Grabber. Consider a PIXCI® E4, PIXCI® E8, or PIXCI® E4G2-2F frame grabber as an alternative, supporting all of the camera's Camera Link modes.

Note 9. The camera can operate in Base, Medium, or Full Camera Link modes; the PIXCI® EL1DB(Rev7+) Frame Grabber only supports the Base Camera Link mode. The capture taps (channels) and/or bits per pixel must be reduced to allow operation within the modes supported by the PIXCI® EL1DB(Rev7+) Frame Grabber. Consider a PIXCI® EL1(Rev7+), PIXCI® E4, PIXCI® E8, or PIXCI® E4G2-2F frame grabber as an alternative, supporting all of the camera's Camera Link modes.

Note 10. The camera can operate in Base, Medium, or Full Camera Link modes; the PIXCI® EL1DB Frame Grabber only supports the Base Camera Link mode. The capture taps (channels) and/or bits per pixel must be reduced to allow operation within the modes supported by the PIXCI® EL1DB Frame Grabber. Consider a PIXCI® EL1, PIXCI® E4, PIXCI® E8, or PIXCI® E4G2-2F frame grabber as an alternative, supporting all of the camera's Camera Link modes.

Note 11. The camera can operate in Base, Medium, or Full Camera Link modes; the PIXCI® ECB2 Frame Grabber only supports the Base Camera Link mode. The capture taps (channels) and/or bits per pixel must be reduced to allow operation within the modes supported by the PIXCI® ECB2 Frame Grabber. Consider a PIXCI® EC1 frame grabber as an alternative, supporting all of the camera's Camera Link modes.

Note 12. The camera can operate in Base, Medium, or Full Camera Link modes; the PIXCI® ECB1-34 Frame Grabber only supports the Base Camera Link mode. The capture taps (channels) and/or bits per pixel must be reduced to allow operation within the modes supported by the PIXCI® ECB1-34 Frame Grabber.

Note 13. The camera can operate in Base, Medium, or Full Camera Link modes; the PIXCI® miniH2b Frame Grabber only supports the Base Camera Link mode. The capture taps (channels) and/or bits per pixel must be reduced to allow operation within the modes supported by the PIXCI® miniH2b Frame Grabber.

Note 14. The camera can operate in Base, Medium, or Full Camera Link modes; the PIXCI® EB1mini Frame Grabber only supports the Base Camera Link mode. The capture taps (channels) and/or bits per pixel must be reduced to allow operation within the modes supported by the PIXCI® EB1mini Frame Grabber.

Note 15. The camera can operate in Base, Medium, or Full Camera Link modes; the PIXCI® EB1-PoCL Frame Grabber only supports the Base Camera Link mode. The capture taps (channels) and/or bits per pixel must be reduced to allow operation within the modes supported by the PIXCI® EB1-PoCL Frame Grabber.

Note 16. The camera can operate in Base, Medium, or Full Camera Link modes; the PIXCI® EB1(Rev7+) Frame Grabber only supports the Base Camera Link mode. The capture taps (channels) and/or bits per pixel must be reduced to allow operation within the modes supported by the PIXCI® EB1(Rev7+) Frame Grabber. Consider a PIXCI® EL1(Rev7+), PIXCI® E4, PIXCI® E8, or PIXCI® E4G2-2F frame grabber as an alternative, supporting all of the camera's Camera Link modes.

Note 17. The camera can operate in Base, Medium, or Full Camera Link modes; the PIXCI® EB1 Frame Grabber only supports the Base Camera Link mode. The capture taps (channels) and/or bits per pixel must be reduced to allow operation within the modes supported by the PIXCI® EB1 Frame Grabber.
