BitFlow BitBox: A better solution for high-density I/O applications



Introducing a cost-effective, reliable and easy way to simultaneously control dozens of machine vision devices, while also acquiring data input from even more!

Are you still using an I/O card to control strobes, solenoids and actuators? Or to acquire data from photo detectors or triggers?There is a better way: The new BitBox from BitFlow provides an unprecedented 36 inputs and 36 outputs in a compact, DIN-rail mounted, compact form factor that supports TTL, LVDS, open collector, opto-isolated and 24V signaling.

Amazingly simple to deploy, the BitBox™ is controlled solely by a BitFlow frame grabber, using the same API, driver and manual. As a result, you achieve significant cost savings, while reducing space requirements and flattening the learning curve for customers.

In addition, this solution isolates noisy, high-voltage signals generated by the PC, keeping them away from the machine where they could cause data drops, video problems, malfunctions and random network errors



The BitBox™ contains 12-pin connector blocks that can be added or removed, but still lock securely in place for factory floor reliability. Blocks are logically grouped by signal type and have snap-in connectors that allow the fabrication of a harness without directly wiring the BitBox™. A small high-speed 15-wire cable runs between the BitBox™ and the frame grabber. Maximum length cable is a generous 10 meters, providing maximum flexibility in positioning equipment within the machine.

The BitBox will be available the third quarter of 2016. For more information, please contact or call +65 6748 5517.
