With the new Basler boost series, Basler is setting new standards in industrial image processing.
This is because CoaXPress was previously only available with a speed of up to 6.25 Gbps. With CPX 2.0, throughput speeds of up to 12.5 Gbps are now possible. This opens up completely new possibilities and makes it possible to use high-resolution sensors, for example. The Basler boost series is now available with this interface. The camera then delivers high resolutions and high frame rates up to a cable length of 40 meters.
In addition to the camera, Basler offers the camera including interface card in the Basler boost bundle.
The new Basel boost
Higher resolutions and frame rates are finally possible thanks to the new interface. This is why the Basler boost is available with either the Sony IMX253 or IMX255 sensor . With these sensors you can achieve a resolution of 12 and 9 megapixels at maximum frame rates of 68 fps and 93 fps.
With the interface card included in the bundle, you have the full range of image processing at your disposal. The interface card means that the computer's processor is not overloaded when transferring the image data. This means that much more computing capacity is available for processing the images.
This frame grabber is only available as part of a bundle and is not sold individually.
Advantages of CoaXPress 2.0
CoaXPress offers many advantages for users with challenging conditions. The advantages allow you to make better recordings and make set-up easier.
With a throughput speed of up to 12.5 Gbps, CoaXPress is one of the fastest interfaces on the market. Thanks to this speed, you can significantly increase the throughput of your existing application and take advantage of high-resolution sensors.
Longer cable lengths
In contrast to USB 3.1 or CameraLink interfaces, for example, much longer cable lengths are possible with CoaXPress 2.0. With USB 3.1 and CameraLink, maximum cable lengths of up to 10 meters are possible. CoaXPress allows a maximum cable length of 40 meters at the highest throughput speed. At lower throughput speeds, even more than 100 meters are possible.
The longer cables give you much greater flexibility in the setup. You can avoid the problems that often occur when using short cables.
The coaxial cable can be used to transmit data and supply the camera with power. Coupling the CXP standard to the GeniCam standard makes it easy to connect the camera and PC software. It is even possible to use other vision standards.
Thanks to the combination of frame grabber technology and suitable cameras, very precise camera synchronization is possible with multi-camera systems. The low latency time also contributes to this.
When it comes to the lowest cost per transferred megabyte, a CoaXPress 2.0 interface is the price-performance winner. This is mainly due to newly available electronic components and the possibility of only having to use one cable.
Areas of application for CoaXPress 2.0
CoaXPress is suitable for many applications. Especially if you are not satisfied with the previous performance or want a space-saving integration.
Thanks to CoaXPress, you can now use the full speed of high-resolution sensors and further improve your recordings.
Using the frame grabber also reduces the CPU load on the computer. This means that you can process and record high-resolution recordings with many simple systems and do not have to invest in new PC systems.
