Accurately capture fast-running processes
This makes the LXC cameras ideal for a variety of applications in semiconductor and electronics manufacturing, metrology, laboratory automation and traffic inspection. Camera Link offers high bandwidth and low CPU load for high performance cameras. However, unlike other interfaces, the challenge is integration. That's why this was the development focus for the new LXC models. In addition, monitoring options for safe operation should be provided. This simplifies the system structure and reduces the integration costs.
Camera configuration uses the "Gen CP" protocol. It enables a similarly convenient parameterization via GenICam as with GigE Vision. This eliminates the complicated register programming otherwise required by Camera Link. In addition, the LXC cameras can detect transmission errors by calculating a checksum over the image data, which can be validated on the PC or in the frame grabber during operation. To ensure system stability, this can be used to verify data integrity, especially for robotic applications or when using longer cables. Up to 15 m have been successfully tested.
