Dual Base Camera Link Frame Grabber For PCI Express
The PIXCI® E4DB frame grabber connects two Base camera link cameras to the PCI Express bus. The PIXCI E4DB is handled by EPIX’ software as if two PIXCI E4 boards are installed. The E4DB will accept two trigger signals — one for each camera; or allows a single trigger to control capture from both cameras. A strobe output signal is generated for each trigger. The PIXCI E4DB frame grabber supports two cameras with a combined sustained bandwidth up to 700 MB/second. Compatible with the PCI Express x4 bus, the PIXCI E4DB frame grabber interfaces to more than 100 of the newest, most advanced, highest bandwidth machine vision cameras available.
The PIXCI E4DB and XCAP offers:
- 1 GB/sec burst data transfer rate.
- Up to 700 MB/sec sustained data transfer from cameras to x4 PCI Express bus.
- Two Camera Control Dialogs - independent or shared – exposure, bit depth, gain, frame rate, etc.
- Free-run mode for maximum frame rate sequence capture.
- Control mode for triggered image capture.
- Quantity one price $1395.00 with XCAP-Lite imaging program.
The PIXCI E4DB is a plug-n-play frame grabber requiring no hardware setup or adjustment. Load the software, install the board, connect the cameras, and begin to capture images.
The XCAP imaging program supports up to 4 PIXCI E4DB frame grabbers allowing use of eight Base configuration Camera Link cameras in the same computer. The XCAP-Std program allows simultaneous use of the PIXCI E4DB with other EPIX® frame grabbers supporting different camera models, either Camera Link compatible or not. XCAP-Std also offers video-to-disk capture, subject to the performance of the host computer’s RAID array.
Programmer’s libraries and image processing subroutines are available from EPIX, Inc. for solving the most difficult particle tracking, machine vision measurement, inspection, image sequence analysis, and flow analysis tasks. Third party software is also available.
