Product Announcement for Basler boost: The New Camera with CoaXPress 2.0 Interface for High Data Rates
Are you looking for a camera with excellent image quality and high frame rates that can transfer your image data to a computer quickly and across great distances? Our Basler boost series meets exactly this demand.
The Basler boost camera
The Basler boost camera delivers high resolutions and high frame rates with a cable length of up to 40 m. Thanks to the upcoming CoaXPress 2.0 standard, the Basler boost cameras achieve a maximum bandwidth of up to 12.5 Gbps with a single CXP cable. The precise triggering with the CXP cable eliminates the need for a separate I/O cable, making a single-cable solution possible in combination with Power over CXP (PoCXP). This results in significant cost reductions.
We combine this advancement in interface technology with the best that the current CMOS sensor landscape has to offer: a Sony IMX253 or IMX255 sensor delivers resolutions of 12 or 9 megapixels respectively with maximum frame rates of 93 fps or 68 fps.
The Basler boost has dimensions of 80 mm x 80 mm x 45 mm and includes a digital input along with two GPIO ports. The well-known Basler features such as the image optimization PGI are also available in this camera.
The Basler boost bundle
The CXP 2.0 interface requires an appropriate interface card in the PC. It prevents the PC’s processor (CPU) from being blocked by the image data transfer, so that it can be fully available for the image processing application. To this end, we offer our proprietary Basler CXP-12 interface card. Combined with the Basler boost camera, it forms the Basler boost bundle that gives the customer a simple image acquisition solution from one source. Basler’s Camera Software Suite addresses the camera as well as the interface card, making the integration into the application even easier.
