BitFlow to Unveil New Axion-CL CameraLink Frame Grabber at VISION in Stuttgart Germany

VISION will be held in Stuttgart, Germany, November 4-6, 2014. with BitFlow exhibiting in booth #1A05.

WOBURN, MA, OCTOBER 13, 2014 -- BitFlow is continuing to widen its technology dominance in the CameraLink frame grabber (CL) category with the scheduled unveiling of its new Axion-CL, the company's sixth generation CL frame grabber, at VISION, the world's leading machine vision trade fair. VISION will be held in Stuttgart, Germany, November 4-6, 2014. with BitFlow exhibiting in booth #1A05.


"VISION gives BitFlow the industry's full attention for the Axion-CL introduction, along with presenting an important forum to meet with current and potential customers from around the world to show them how to capitalize on the rapidly growing machine vision market," said Donal Waide, Director of Sales, BitFlow. "We'll also be staging booth demos of our Cyton CXP CoaXPress frame grabber that highlights its groundbreaking capabilities."

According to Waide, the Cyton CXP CoaXPress demonstrations will use a combination of area scan and line scan cameras to illustrate how simple it is to switch cameras on-the-fly, and how multiple cameras can be tapped into a single board without compromising data rate speed or performance. Another showstopper will be a demosiacing demonstration that convincingly displays how the Cyton, when coupled with an NVIDIA GPU, can construct a high quality full color image in real time, from a grayscale image encoded with Bayer CFA data..

"The Cyton demosiacing demonstration, in particular, has encouraged the exchange of application ideas," said Waide. "It shows that today's imaging systems are fully capable and ready to deliver with the CoaXPress interface - simply, inexpensively and reliably."

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
