64-Bit/66MHz PCI Interface Board for
Full, Medium & Base Configuration
Camera Link Cameras
The PIXCI® CL2 frame grabber supports Full, Medium, and Base
configuration Camera Link cameras. Compatible with the 64-bit/
66MHz PCI bus, the CL2 board interfaces to many of the newest,
most advanced, highest bandwidth machine vision cameras
The PIXCI CL2 offers
• Up to 400 megabytes per second data transfer to the host
• Camera specific control – exposure, bit depth, gain, frame rate.
• Camera operation in free-run mode – supporting maximum
frame rate sequence capture.
• Camera operation in control (trigger) mode.

The PIXCI CL2 is a plug-n-play frame grabber board requiring no
hardware setup or adjustment. Install the board, load the
software, connect to the camera, and begin to capture images.
When the XCAP imaging program is started, it automatically
reads a camera identification code programmed on the PIXCI
CL2 board. This code specifies the camera being used and
allows XCAP to immediately load the appropriate video format
and display the camera’s dedicated Capture & Adjust Dialog
(camera control menu).
The XCAP imaging program supports up to 8 PIXCI CL2 boards
(on the same or multiple buses) making it possible to use
multiple Full, Medium, or Base configuration Camera Link
cameras simultaneously. The XCAP-STD program allows
simultaneous use of the PIXCI CL2 with other EPIX frame
grabbers supporting different camera models, either camera link
compatible or not, allowing one computer to support simultaneous use of different cameras under the control of one imaging
Medium and Full Configuration Camera Link cameras usually
require more PCI bus bandwidth than provided by a
32-bit/33MHz PCI bus. The PIXCI CL2 frame grabber requires a
64-bit/66MHz PCI bus slot, or a PCI-X bus slot. These buses are
available on server or workstation computers, which EPIX can
assemble to your custom specifications.
EPIX, Inc. has been providing imaging solutions and support for
OEM machine vision manufacturers and engineers since 1984.
