Boost CXP-12 cameras and CXP-12 interface cards

Basler is significantly expanding its presence in the CoaXPress 2.0 market and extending its product portfolio with additional CXP-12 camera models from the boost series, two new multi-channel CXP-12 interface cards, and a variety of matching components. The boost camera is now available with two ports and the powerful Sony Pregius S sensors IMX530, IMX531 and IMX532, with resolutions up to 24 MP and frame rates up to 150 fps. The cameras can be efficiently combined with the new two- and four-channel interface cards. Components such as C- and F-mount lenses, coaxial cables and evaluation kits for a simplified test and integration phase complete the CXP-12 overall package.

The interface cards together with the boost cameras form a tightly integrated--and also low-cost--unit, controlled by the established pylon Camera Software Suite as a single SDK. This allows computer vision systems to be put into operation as multi-camera setups with little effort via plug-and-play functionality, reducing system complexity and integration effort and thus overall system costs, for applications such as those in the semiconductor and solar industries, display (FPD), print and food inspection, and medical technology.

Many combinations for numerous applications

The portfolio now increases to 16 boost CXP-12 area scan cameras, with global shutter CMOS sensors from Sony and ON Semiconductor, resolutions up to 45 MP for monochrome and color applications, and three Interface Cards with one, two and four channels. The camera and interface card combinations are scalable according to the CoaXPress 2.0 standard to achieve high resolutions and frame rates for high-speed applications. These systems stand out with low latencies and cost-effective long cables with integrated power supply (PoCXP - single-cable solution) that are also suitable for drag chains. The interface cards already have set image pre-processing functions, which reduces the CPU load of the host computer.

With its many years of experience in the CoaXPress field, Basler offers a carefully selected, tested and compatible portfolio of hardware and software. This allows users to easily select and integrate to build a future-oriented and efficient computer vision system according to their specific requirements. Existing system architectures based on older CoaXPress or Camera Link interfaces can thus be updated to the latest technology. Basler Support is available to answer any technical questions you may have about CoaXPress.
