NI PCIe-8237R GigE Vision Power over Ethernet Frame Grabber With FPGA I/O

Starting at $ 707 (view pricing options)
  • Two independent GigE Vision Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports
  • FPGA-enabled I/O for triggering and synchronization
  • Optimized driver for extremely low CPU load
  • x4 PCI Express interface
  • NI Vision Acquisition Software included
The NI PCIe-8237R two-port GigE Vision frame grabber features Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology with the option of FPGA-enabled I/O. It provides high-speed or high-resolution bandwidth for machine vision applications through the combination of two independent Gigabit Ethernet ports and NI’s high-performance GigE Vision driver, which is optimized for machine vision needs.

PoE reduces the need for additional external power supplies by powering cameras over the Ethernet bus, which simplifies system design and cabling complexity. The NI PCIe-8237R is fully compliant with the isolation specifications of the IEEE 802.3af standard and can interface with the latest low-cost PoE cameras on the market as well as non-PoE GigE Vision cameras with cable lengths up to 100 m.

The NI PCIe-8237R features NI LabVIEW FPGA-enabled I/O, including isolated digital inputs and outputs as well as bidirectional TTL lines for implementing custom counters, PWM signals, and quadrature encoder inputs. It also offers advanced triggering and synchronization options, such as a low-jitter, low-latency FPGA-based network trigger and queued pulse support. These options enable the tight synchronization of sensors, camera triggering, sorting devices, and other parts of the vision system directly from the frame grabber using a single API.

You can use NI LabVIEW development software and the LabVIEW FPGA Module to extend the functionality of this module.
