The Teledyne DALSA X64-CL iPRO and X64-CL iPRO\LITE cards are digital frame grabbers that use the CameraLink interface. The X64-CL iPRO can acquire data from two cameras independently of one another in base mode or from one camera in medium mode. The LITE variant of the frame grabber can be used to acquire data from one base camera, and sustainable data bandwidths of up to 300MB/s are
achievable. Both colour and monochrome cameras with either area or line
sensors are supported.
The X64-CL iPRO also offers various hardware pre-processing functions using
the FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array).
These cards have been primarily developed for industrial use, which is why
they offer features such as robust design, guaranteed data security, long-term
availability, high performance and extensive interfaces for industrial
integration. As a result, they are suitable for all industrial CameraLink
applications that require high transmission performance and data security
while also offering excellent value for money.
