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
SIMPLE TO USE, EASY TO INTEGRATE!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call +65 6748 5517.
