Building on the field proven capability of Teledyne DALSA’s Xcelera frame grabber series, the Xtium™-CL MX4 is based on industry standard PCI Express™ Gen 2.0 expansion bus to deliver high speed access to host memory. The new Xtium series offers higher bandwidth to sustain Camera Link® 80-Bit modes over longer cable distances and supports a wide variety of area and line scan color/monochrome cameras, all in a compact, half-length, single slot solution.

The Xtium-CL MX4 takes full advantage of PCIe Gen 2.0 x4 platform to deliver a bandwidth in excess of 1.7GB/s, while at the same time supporting PCIe Gen 1.0 slot to deliver 850MB/s. The newly engineered, on-board, Data Transfer Engine (DTE) produces maximum bandwidth without the need for specialized motherboards or chipsets. By enabling maximum sustained throughput and ready-to-use image data, the Xtium-CL MX4 minimizes CPU usage and improves processing times for the host applications. In addition, the Xtium series has been engineered with enhanced memory architecture allowing it to handle different sensor tap topologies while sustaining color decoding at the maximum frame/line rate.

The Xtium-CL MX4 offers built-in, robust electrical signals for external event synchronization, and status notification LEDs. One or more boards can be synchronized to acquire images from multiple area or line scan cameras simultaneously. The Xtium-CL MX4 supports Base, Medium, Full or 80-Bit mode Camera Link area and line scan, color and monochrome cameras with PoCL capabilities. And all Xtium-CL frame grabbers are built with Teledyne DALSA's Trigger to Image Reliability framework, which controls and monitors the entire process from trigger through image capture and transfer to host memory and helps protect you from data loss.

Fully Supported By Sapera™ Vision SDK

When combined with the Xtium series of frame grabbers, standard Sapera Processing run-time licenses are offered at no additional charge. Sapera Processing is at the heart of Sapera Vision Software, delivering a suite of image processing and analysis functions. These functions include over 400 image processing primitives, barcode tools, pattern matching tools (both area-based and edge-based), OCR, color and blob analysis, measurement, and calibration tools for perspective and lens correction. The standard tools run-time license includes access to image processing functions, area based (normalized correlation based) template matching tools, blob analysis, and lens correction tools.
