BitFlow to Demonstrate CoaXPress Frame Grabbers at SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing Conference

BitFlow will be showcasing its broad range of frame grabbers, introducing new products, and demonstrating its commitment to the defense and high-security industries in booth number #359 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

WOBURN, MA, MARCH 30, 2017 -- BitFlow, Inc., one of the world's most innovative suppliers of frame grabbers for machine vision, announced today it will be exhibiting at the SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing 2017 Conference from April 9-13 in Anaheim CA. BitFlow will be showcasing its broad range of frame grabbers, introducing new products, and demonstrating its commitment to the defense and high-security industries in booth number #359 at the Anaheim Convention Center.


BitFlow invites all SPIE visitors to a live demonstration at its booth of the Cyton-CXP4 CoaXPress frame grabber, especially integrators and designers responsible for migrating existing analog vision systems to faster, higher resolution digital imaging technologies. The demonstration will show Cyton-CXP4 frame grabbers connected to a single quad-link ultra high-resolution camera, and to four standard resolution single-link cameras. Each camera runs independently, yet acquires simultaneously and together handle a staggering 50 Gb/S of image data.

"The Cyton-CXP4 allows integrators and designers to re-purpose installed coaxial cable, eliminating the cost and hassle of running new network wiring," explained Donal Waide, Director of Sales & Marketing for BitFlow. "It is an optimal solution for defense and high-security applications requiring zero-latency, uncompressed video for analysis and processing, since it can transmit data at up to 625 MB/s, simultaneously transmitting control data and triggers and providing up to 13W of power to the camera."

In addition the Cyton-CXP4, BitFlow will be exhibiting:
• Aon-CXP single link frame grabbers are optimized for use with the newest generation of smaller, cooler operating CXP single link cameras. The Aon-CXP provides all the convenience of a GigE Vision or USB3 Vision system. It can compete on price, as well as exceed the cable lengths in many cases, and provide a host of Machine Vision features missing from GigE Vision or USB3 Vision camera systems such as triggers, encoders, strobe, waveform generators, and quadrature encoder support.
• The BitBox I/O box is BitFlow's solution for high density I/O applications. Many machine makers require a large number of computer managed I/O signals for continuous control of the system state. In general, BitFlow frame grabbers come with a fairly large number of inputs and outputs, but for some system this is simply not enough.The BitBox has been designed for just this situation. It is controlled completely from the frame grabber, and uses the same API, driver and manuals, to help save time, money and space, plus flatten the learning curve.
• Axion CL frame grabbers are the sixth generation of BitFlow's acclaimed Camera Link frame grabber line. The Axion CL is fully compatible with every high-speed, high-performance Camera Link camera including base, medium, full and 80-bit (10-tap) CL configurations.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
