Basler is a leading global manufacturer of digital cameras for industrial applications, medical devices, traffic systems, and the video surveillance market.
The Basler aviator series includes state-of-the-art high-speed cameras with a Gigabit Ethernet interface. They deliver excellent image quality even at high capture rates.
GigE Vision is a widely adopted camera interface that leverages standard, inexpensive cables and hardware for easy implementation. The GigE Vision standard offers the most flexibility, with long cable lengths up to 100 m, and the ability to connect multiple cameras to a single port using network hubs.
NI-IMAQdx, a high-performance GigE Vision driver (part of NI Vision Acquisition Software), is optimized for Intel Pro 1000 chipsets to help you reduce CPU loads when acquiring from GigE cameras. For the best experience, you can use GigE Vision cameras with the powerful stand-alone NI Embedded Vision System and NI GigE Vision plug-in boards.
A lens is required to control the amount of light that reaches the image sensor and adjust the focal point of the camera's target. Choose a lens based upon distance from the camera to the object under view, the size of the object, image sensor size, and the required field of view.
You need a cable to transmit signals between the camera and frame grabber. Some cables also provide power and triggering to the camera.
You need a frame grabber to acquire image data from the camera and interface to your computer.
You need software to interface with your hardware and to collect, analyze, present, and store your measurements. This board is compatible with a variety of programming languages, including LabVIEW, C/C++, Visual Basic, and .NET. LabVIEW provides the easiest integration with all of your NI hardware and is recommended to maximize your hardware investment.
