Product Description

The PIXCI® ECB2 frame grabber provides two interfaces for any two Base CameraLink cameras. The PIXCI ECB2 is handled by EPIX' software as if two PIXCI ECB1 boards are installed. The ECB2 will accept two trigger signals, one for each camera or a single trigger to control capture from both cameras.  A strobe output signal is generated for each trigger. The PIXCI ECB2 frame grabber supports two cameras with a combined sustained bandwidth up to 204 MB/second. Compatible with ExpressCard, the mobile PCI Express interface for notebook computers, the PIXCI® ECB2 frame grabber interfaces to more than 100 of the newest, most advanced, highest bandwidth machine vision cameras available.

The PIXCI® ECB2 captures from line scan or area scan cameras operating in either free-run (continuous) or controlled (triggered) mode. Free-run mode provides maximum line or frame rates. Controlled mode uses software for control of each exposure, uses a hardware timing circuit on the PIXCI ECB2 to control exposure, or uses an optional TTL trigger input cable to start exposure. A TTL strobe output cable is available for strobe lighting applications.

The PIXCI ECB2 with XCAP offers:

  • 191 megabytes per second, sustained, data transfer rate to laptop. Faster notebooks may provide up to 204 megabytes per second, sustained, data rates. Burst transfers at 250 megabytes per second.
  • Independent Camera Control Dialogs for exposure, bit depth, gain, frame rate, etc.
  • Cameras in free-run mode for maximum frame rate sequence capture.
  • Cameras in control mode for triggered image capture.
  • Operation under Windows or Linux - 32 or 64-bit

The PIXCI® ECB2 is a plug-n-play frame grabber requiring no hardware setup or adjustment. Install the board, load the software, connect the camera, and capture images. Upon startup, the XCAP imaging program reads a camera identification chip on the PIXCI® ECB2 frame grabber, allowing XCAP to load the appropriate video format and display the camera's dedicated Capture & Adjust Dialog.

The PIXCI® ECB2 frame grabber, with the XCAP program, offers dedicated camera control dialogs supporting hundreds of the newest, most advanced, highest bandwidth machine vision cameras. For cameras without dedicated software control, the Generic configuration menu allows the user to create and save camera configuration parameters.  The included XCAP-Lite imaging program provides camera control and image capture with no software development.
