The PIXCI® EB1P is a low cost, low profile Base CameraLink frame grabber with power over CameraLink (PoC). The PIXCI® EB1P includes EPIX’ XCAP-Lite software and is ready to run with camera specific, integrated, controls for most popular Camera Link cameras and easy-to-use generic configuration controls for other Camera Link cameras. The PIXCI EB1P uses a PCI Express x1 slot to support transfer rates to 2.5 Gbit/sec.
The PIXCI® EB1P safely supports PoCL cameras by detecting when a PoCL camera is connected and will disconnect power if it exceeds the specification. Standard base configuration Camera Link cameras are also supported. Meeting the low profile size requirements, the PIXCI EB1P is ideal for use in space saving computers.
When the speed of image capture and low latency are important, the PIXCI® EB1P gets the job done without waiting for a network to respond to an image transfer request. The PIXCI® EB1P transfers twice as fast as gigabit Ethernet, three times faster than Firewire, and ten times faster than USB 2.0. Images are available in host computer memory within one line time after leaving the camera.
The PIXCI EB1P with XCAP offers:
The PIXCI EB1P is a plug-n-play frame grabber requiring no hardware setup or adjustment. Load the software, install the board, connect the cameras, and begin to capture images.
The XCAP imaging program supports up to eight PIXCI® EB1P frame grabbers making it possible to use multiple Base configuration Camera Link cameras simultaneously. The XCAP-Std program allows simultaneous use of the PIXCI® EB1P with other EPIX® frame grabbers supporting different camera models, either Camera Link compatible or not. XCAP-Std also offers video-to-disk capture, subject to the performance of the host computer's RAID array.
Versions of the PIXCI EB1P are available preset for many specific camera models. Please request information on these if you have a particular camera you plan to use.
