Accessories and Bundles

Accessories and Bundles

Here you can find suitable accessories for your frame grabber.

Frame grabber components such as the trigger boards complement the frame grabber to synchronize image acquisition with the entire image processing system in real-time. The signal processing controls sensors and actuators such as cameras, lighting, light barriers and encoders.

For microEnable IV frame grabbers, the temperature upgrade guarantees an increase of the factory approved operating temperature. Power Supply enables a direct power supply of the GigE Vision cameras via the frame grabber.

VisualApplets Expert

VisualApplets Expert

Experienced users have the option of applying existing hardware code, debugging the design under runtime conditions and creating paths to parameters in hierarchical structures.

  • With the custom library, system builders apply their image processing modules programmed in VHDL or Verilog (VHDL libraries) in VisualApplets as generic operators, thus preserving their preparatory work.
  • The debugging library enables enhanced debugging to detect programming errors, deadlocks and bandwidth problems and to increase the design stability.
  • The parameters library offers users tools to change even those parameters that might be deeply embedded in the design’s hierarchical structures. The changes are automatically and consistently updated during the runtime.

VisualApplets Libraries

VisualApplets Libraries

VisualApplets libraries comprise multiple operator libraries which expand the operators’ scope with valuable image processing functions, such as those for segmentation, classification and compression.

  • Segmentation/classification: These operators are used to segment and define objects in images and assign characteristics to them.
  • Compression: The JPEG operator makes it possible to execute the JPEG image compression directly on the FPGA of the vision hardware to reduce image data.

VisualApplets Protection

VisualApplets Protection

To prevent the use of proprietary applets on external frame grabbers and thus protect intellectual property from outside access, the applets and frame grabbers can each be securely encoded with a lock.

  • Applets and frame grabbers are each securely encoded with a lock.
  • Two protective mechanisms guarantee maximum security.
