Karbon CXP2

Share this on social media:

BitFlow has released its Karbon CXP2, a two-link frame grabber ideal for smaller vision systems. Incorporating the CoaXPress (CXP) standard, the Karbon-CXP2 frame grabbers offer video acquisition speeds up to 6 Gigabits per second, and will send control commands and triggers at 20 Megabits per second, all over a single piece of 75 Ohm coaxial cable in lengths up to 135 metres. Additionally, a maximum 13W of power can be transmitted to the camera along the cable. Engineers using the Karbon-CXP2 and the CXP standard can easily re-purpose existing coaxial infrastructure with very low installation costs, reducing system complexity and improving utilisation.

Karbon-CXP2 frame grabbers are CoaXPress 1.0 compliant and will support either one two-link camera or up to two single-link cameras. Adding the frame grabber to an application is simplified by an included SDK that supports both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. Applications can be developed using C/ C++/.NET and BitFlow's buffer management APIs.
