Stemmer Imaging has added Dalsa's Xcelera-CL LX1 Base frame grabber to its product portfolio. The low cost, entry-level Camera Link frame grabber is easy to set up and use, delivers reliable image acquisition and offers extensive software support. It is a quarter-length PCI Express x1 board and therefore is ideal for applications where space on the bus is limited.

Fully compliant with Camera Link (V. 1.20) specifications and PoCL, the Xcelera-CL LX1 supports single Base cameras and can acquire images from a wide variety of multi-tap area and line scan, colour and monochrome cameras. The PCIe point-to-point host interface allows simultaneous image acquisition and transfer with little intervention from the host CPU.

The frame grabber operates within Dalsa's Trigger-to-Image Reliability technology framework and combines acquisition and external control signals on a single PCIe slot. Trigger-to-Image Reliability is a design framework that contributes to efficient machine vision system design and operation by supplying the key design elements needed to secure the image acquisition process, permit error identification, and provide a recovery mechanism if errors do occur. 

The Xcelera-CL LX1 Base is also supplied with a free run-time license for Dalsa's Sapera Essential standard machine vision software toolkit for the design and development of high-performance machine vision applications. Sapera Essential bundles board level acquisition and control with over 400 image processing functions including 1D/2D barcodes, OCR, pattern finding, colour analysis, blob analysis and lens correction tools.
