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."

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
