As the highest bandwidth accepted imaging standard, Camera Link works well for high-resolution cameras and line-scan cameras. The NI PCIe-1433 also supports Power over Camera Link (PoCL) and can be used to power cameras through PoCL-enabled cables. You can access additional digital I/O lines using optional PCI and PCI Express I/O extension boards, which expose the following digital lines: eight TTL, three optically isolated input, three optically isolated output, and one quadrature encoder.
The NI PCIe-1433 image acquisition board is ideal for many industrial, life science, and biomedical imaging applications. Example industrial applications include web and surface inspection, as well as fault analysis by setting up a stop trigger to record images before and after an event on the factory floor. Example scientific applications include analyzing intricacies in movement and recording the stimulus responses in objects from heart valves to eye corneas.
Like all NI vision hardware, the NI PCIe-1433 is programmable using the NI Vision Development Module. You also can configure it using NI Vision Builder for Automated Inspection (AI) software for faster development and simplified maintenance.
