Ximea xiX PCIe MX031MG-SY


The Ximea xiX PCIe MX031MG-SY industrial camera is the backbone of the xiFLY platform. It is a small, lightweight camera with a flexible ribbon cable interface. Alternatively, it can be adapted to fiber optic cabling. The small board stack in this camera makes for fantastic flexibility in systems with tight spatial requirements. Together with the xiFLY accessories, The Ximea xiX PCIe MX031MG-SY camera drives performance in small spaces, from great distances, and at high speed. The real power of this camera is unleashed when combined with an xSwitch – a central component of the xiFLY platform: data streams from multiple cameras are multiplexed together into a single high bandwidth data interface for simple output (and routing) to the controlling computer. Add to that, the ability to replicate power and trigger signals through the switch allows for hassle-free synchronous data acquisition. The Ximea xiX PCIe MX031MG-SY industrial camera is one of the very few in the industry that can simply and effectively take advantage of the real speed offered by the sensors they contain. The PCIe interface brings the advantages of raw speed, low latency, and high robustness.
