Xtium-CLHS PX8

Camera Link HS

Feature-rich CLHS acquisition and processing

Building on the field proven capability of Teledyne DALSA’s Xcelera frame grabber series, the Xtium™-CLHS PX8 is based on AIA’s CameraLink HS standard and uses PCI Express™ Gen 2.0 expansion bus to deliver high speed image acquisition and image transfer to the host memory. Xtium-CLHS uses industry standard CX4 cable to delivery up to 2.1 GB/s of image acquisition over a single cable to go beyond 15m and host transfer speeds of up to 3.2GB/sec - all in a compact, half-length, single slot solution.

Great features to make your job easier

The Xtium-CLHS features high-performance on-board, Data Transfer Engine (DTE) to deliver maximum bandwidth without the need for specialized motherboards or chipsets. By enabling maximum sustained throughput and ready-to-use image data, the Xtium-CLHS PX8 minimizes CPU usage and improves processing times for host applications. In addition, the Xtium series has been engineered with enhanced memory to meet the ever-increasing image resolution and faster frame rates of today’s camera technology. And all Xtium-CLHS 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.

Free acquisition and control software libraries: Sapera LT

The Xtium and Xtium2 series of frame grabbers are fully supported by Sapera LT SDK. Sapera LT SDK is an image acquisition and control software development toolkit (SDK) for Teledyne DALSA'S cameras and frame grabbers. Hardware independent by nature, Sapera LT offers a rich development ecosystem for machine vision OEMs and system integrators. Sapera LT SDK supports image acquisition from cameras and frame grabbers based on standards including GigE Vision™, Camera Link®, CoaXPress®, and Camera Link HS™.

Fully supported by Sapera™ vision SDK

When combined with a compatible Teledyne DALSA frame grabber, 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.
