Discover the superior performance of the first PCIe 3.0 CoaxPress frame grabber.
The Coaxlink Quad G3, the fourth member of the Coaxlink series, is now available. It is the first CoaXPress frame grabber with a PCIe 3.0 (Gen 3) interface, for a sustained transfer rate of more than 3 GBytes per second !
The board features, 4 x CXP-6 CoaXPress connections, PCIe 3.0 (Gen 3) x4 bus with a transfer rate of more than 3 GByte/s, Feature-rich set of 20 digital input / output lines, and comes with Memento, an innovative Event Logging Tool for machine vision application developers. Memento records an accurate log of all the events related to the image acquisition, for debugging and optimization. An invaluable tool for developers, Memento provides them with a precise timeline of time-stamped events, along with context information.
Typical examples of applications for the Coaxlink frame grabbers are AOI, SPI and 3D SPI, printing inspection, Flat Panel Display or glass inspection.
The benefits of using Coaxial Cabling
Coaxial cabling allows for longer distances between the camera and the frame grabber. Furthermore these cables offer greater reliability and flexibility. At full speed, a cable of up to 35 meters can be used. At half-speed, a distance of 100 meters can be achieved. This clearly reduces the need for repeaters.
A single cable supports data transfer, camera control, trigger and power supply (up to 13W) simplifying the integration and decreasing the costs and the CoaXPress standard offers the real time triggering capabilities required by industrial machine vision applications. Moreover, the Coaxlink cards take advantage of the robust push/pull latching system of DIN 1.0/2.3 connectors for reliable industrial applications.
