NATIONAL Instruments has announced several new image acquisition boards for machine vision and scientific imaging, including the new NI PCI-1426 low-cost image acquisition board for base-configuration Camera Link cameras.
The PCI-1426 is the newest NI image acquisition board in a suite of digital and high-performance Camera Link image acquisition devices.
The PCI-1426 board features onboard image binarisation, 16MB of onboard memory and an optically isolated 15-pin D-Sub connector for camera triggering and system synchronisation.
Delivering an affordable solution for base-configuration Camera Link cameras, the new PCI-1426 completes the suite of NI Camera Link image acquisition boards.
The suite includes the NI PCI-1428 image acquisition board for medium-configuration Camera Link cameras and the NI PCIe-1429, the industry's first PCI Express frame grabber, for full-configuration Camera Link cameras.
The PCI-1426, PCI-1428 and NI PCIe-1429 boards are ideal for both high-speed, industrial inspection applications and high-resolution scientific imaging applications.
Additionally, NI released two new analogue image acquisition boards, the high-performance NI PCI-1410 and the low-cost NI PCI-1405. The monochrome, four-channel PCI-1410 offers support for non-standard analogue cameras and eliminates the need for extra synchronisation signals to acquire nonstandard images.
The PCI-1405 is a low-cost, color image acquisition board that is ideal for applications such as security monitoring.
