CoaXPress standard enhances Intelligent Traffic Systems by replacing analogue systems with digital video platforms

Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS) are a pillar of today's Smart City concept. ITS integrates video communications into traffic infrastructure to advance driver safety, reduce traffic congestion, and lower fuel consumption. As governments strive to achieve these goals with ITS, the high-speed point-to-point serial communication standard CoaXPress (CXP) is playing a vital role, especially in the migration of older analogue systems to networked digital video platforms. CXP allows for the ‘re...

BitFlow introduces BitFlow BitBox I/O device for enhanced machine vision

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connects all technologies, systems, and components involved in the industrial value creation process to each other as well as to company networks and the Internet. With connectively playing a critical role in this scenario, BitFlow announced it is shipping a new I/O device for machine vision which provides an unprecedented 36 inputs and 36 outputs in a compact, DIN-rail mounted form factor supporting TTL, LVDS, open collector, opto-isolated and 24V signal...

BitFlow offers CXP driver support to LabVIEW for CoaXPress

BitFlow, Inc. reported that a free software driver supporting National Instrument LabVIEW for the CoaXPress standard has recently become one of the most frequently downloaded products from its website, www.bitflow.com, underscoring the rapidly expanding adoption of this interface by the machine vision industry. The company also announced the immediate availability of a CXP driver for LabVIEW 2017, the latest version of the popular systems engineering software. The drivers are for use with BitFlo...

BitFlow specifies factors to be taken into consideration while selecting frame grabber for machine vision applications

Over the last two decades, there has been a general trend towards the standardisation of machine vision interfaces. Not long ago, engineers were required to purchase unique and expensive cables for every camera-to-frame grabber combination, or even camera to PC interface. In some cases, different cameras from the same manufacturer required an entirely different set of cables, resulting in costly upgrades and unsatisfied customers. Camera Link HS interface Standardisation has changed that, maki...

BitFlow CoaXPress helps manufacturers overcome challenges of integrating machine vision into Industrial Internet of Things

Aon-CXP is optimised for use with the CXP single-link cameras popular in the IIoT According to market research, there will be nearly 26 billion devices on the Internet of Things by 2020. While the consumer end of the IoT has been the primary focus of attention, the manufacturing subset of the IoT, known as the Industrial Internet of Things or the IIoT, will witness even more spectacular growth. Manufacturing companies are expected to spend $500 billion a year by 2020 on IIoT t...
