Xtium2-CL MX4

Camera Link

Proven Capability. High Speeds. Full Compatibility

Building on the field proven capability of Teledyne DALSA’s Xtium™-CL MX4, the Xtium2™-CL MX4 supports Camera Link® standard and a wide variety of area and line scan color/monochrome camera configurations.

With great bandwidth comes great responsibility

The Xtium2-CL MX4 delivers sustained bandwidth more than 1.7GB/s, while supporting PCIe Gen 3, 2 and 1 slots. Specifically designed to ease the supply chain constraints, the Xtium2-CL MX4 feature identical feature set as Xtium-CL MX4. Customers can use either board interchangeably with a little to no change to their applications, ensuring a consistent and improved supply.

The proven on-board Data Transfer Engine (DTE) delivers maximum bandwidth with no specialized motherboards or chipsets. By enabling maximum sustained throughput and ready-to-use image data, the Xtium2-CL MX4 minimizes CPU usage and improves processing times for the host applications.

Outstanding features to make your job easier

The Xtium2-CL MX4 offers built-in, robust electrical signals for external event synchronization, and status notification LEDs. It can synchronize one or more boards to capture images from multiple area or line scan cameras simultaneously. The Xtium2-CL MX4 supports Base, Medium, Full or 80-Bit mode Camera Link area and line scan, color and monochrome cameras with PoCL capabilities.

Teledyne DALSA’s frame grabbers employ Trigger to Image Reliability framework to control and monitor the entire image capture process from a trigger through capture and transfer images to host memory and notify if any event and/or data loss occurs. As a leading supplier of machine vision components, Teledyne DALSA offers frame grabbers that comply with leading machine vision camera interface standards and supports its own and 3rd party cameras.

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.
