The PC2-CamLink image acquisition board is a monochrome board designed for the 32-bit PCI bus, the PC2-CamLink supports one Base Camera Link area or linescan camera. The board is designed for ease of implementation in a variety of OEM imaging applications. Once the camera cables and external triggers are connected, the PC2-CamLink’s bracket-mounted visual status LEDs provide an immediate visual indication that all signals for acquisition and trigger are present and active. These signals validate key data, including camera connection, image captures, occurrence of triggers and reporting of errors. To further expedite setup, the PC2-CamLink provides direct power (5V or 12V) to the camera. An 8-bit in, 8-bit out registered interface simplifies connectivity to other machine vision equipment, while pin-to-pin connectors are compatible with other PC2 Series and PCVision boards.
