The Coaxlink Quad G3 DF is a CoaXPress frame grabber with four CXP-6 inputs and four CXP-6 Data Forwarding outputs. It allows sharing the data (images) coming from the camera between two or more host computers. The Coaxlink Quad G3 DF is able to distribute the image processing load among several PCs, a feature which makes it ideal for demanding applications requiring heavy image processing and analysis.
Features at a glance
- Four CoaXPress CXP-6 inputs and 4 Data Forwarding outputs: 2,500 MB/s camera bandwidth
- PCIe 3.0 (Gen 3) x4 bus: 3,300 MB/s bus bandwidth
- Feature-rich set of 10 digital I/O lines
- Extensive camera control functions
- Memento Event Logging Tool
- Use of Standard Coaxial Cabling
Coaxial cabling allows for longer distances between the camera and the framegrabber. Moreover, 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
Memento Event Logging Tool
Memento is an advanced development and debugging tool available with the Coaxlink driver. During operation, Memento records an accurate log of all the events related to the camera, the frame grabber and its driver as well as the application. It provides the developer with a precise timeline of time-stamped events, along with context information. Memento provides valuable assistance during application development and debugging, as well as during machine operation. Memento is non-intrusive and works with all Coaxlink cards in the PC.
