The data-forwarding feature of the Xtium-CLHS boards refers to a built-in repeater capability to resend images across multiple computers for distributed processing. The incoming images can be redistributed to up to six additional Xtium-CLHS “slave” frame grabbers.
Thanks to the features "board synchronisation" and data forwarding, multi-camera solutions can be developed. Higher material throughput allows more accurate error detection. The family character - 2 models - with different configuration possibilities and interface support the scalability. The hardware complexity for synchronisation and multi-processing can be reduced, resulting in a design advantage and therefore a competitive advantage of a inspection solution.
