VISION 2016 - BitFlow to Exhibit New BitBox™ at VISION 2016 Show

Device Simplifies Integration and Control of Components in High I/O Applications

WOBURN, MA, OCTOBER 4, 2016 -- BitFlow, a world leader in industrial frame grabbers and software for the imaging industry since 1993, will demonstrate the value of its revolutionary BitBox™ I/O box for machine makers in high-density I/O vision applications at the VISION trade fair in Stuttgart, Germany, from November 8 to 11, 2016, in Hall 1 Stand A05.


BitBox is a cost-effective, reliable way to continuously control dozens of devices such as strobes, solenoids, and actuators, as well as to acquire data input from equipment ranging from photo detectors to triggers. BitBox™ provides an unprecedented 36 inputs and 36 outputs in a compact, DIN-rail mounted form factor that supports TTL, LVDS, open collector, opto-isolated and 24V signaling.

"Using our new BitBox, machine makers will achieve significant cost savings, while reducing space requirements and flattening the learning curve for their customers," said Donal Wiade, Director of Sales and Marketing for BitFlow, Inc. "In addition, because it isolates noisy, high-voltage signals generated by the PC, it helps prevent data drops, video problems, malfunctions and random network errors."

Attendees are encouraged to stop by the BitFlow booth to see the company's full line of CoaXPress, Camera Link, and differential frame grabbers, and to learn how their vision system application can benefit from the advantages of its patented technologies.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
