IPM-8531CL-B is a Camera Link compatible, Base Configuration, Image Input Board. It captures image signals from a Camera Link compatible area camera or line camera to PC main memory. In order to meet a global trend of Environment-friendly consciousness, it is a RoHS compatible product. This board is upward compatible with its predecessor IPM-8530CL-B.
IPM-8531CL-B is for Base Configuration Camera Link cameras and compatible with 32 bit/66MHz PCI Bus, thus users can acquire data at an average rate of 240MB/sec. Furthermore, Pixel Clock Frequency Range increases to 85MHz, which enables inexpensive Base Configuration Camera Link camera to be compatible with this product.
In addition, IPM-8531 series software is upward compatible with its predecessor IPM-8530/40/60 series software, supports 64bit OS, and can fully utilize more than the 4GB available onboard physical memory designed into the PC, as the DMA controller expands physical memory (Note: Memory functioning as a Frame Buffer is limited to 2GB).
Furthermore, as a part of Safety Standard, it is a CE certified product, removing any such concern for users.
