Neousys Launches USB 3.1 Gen 1 Frame Grabber Card PCIe-USB381F, an Faster and Reliable Expansion Option for Machine Vision Applications
Taipei, Taiwan – Feb 5th, 2021 – Neousys Technology, an industry-leading provider of rugged embedded systems, unveiled today its new generation USB Frame Grabber Card PCIe-USB381F with eight USB 3.1 Gen1 ports hosted by four independent USB Controllers. The industrial-grade PCIe-USB381F features long-term reliability, Fresco controllers and an efficient design which can benefit machine vision applications to offer superior stability, performance and flexibility.
To meet the high-reliability needs of industrial applications, PCIe-USB381F has been tested with multiple USB3 cameras, including Basler, FLIR, etc. With four independent fresco controllers, PCIe-USB381F can provide up to 400MB/s sustained data transfer rate per port with four USB3 cameras operating simultaneously or provide a total bandwidth of 1600MB/s when eight cameras are plugged in. Moreover, during a 72-hour full load test, it demonstrated great operating reliability without a single error or frame loss. With support for software-programmable per-port power on/ off control to reset the connected device for fault recovery, PCIe-USB381F proves itself an ideal choice for harsh industrial environments.
With greater bandwidth provided by four Fresco controllers, PCIe-USB381F offers a 25% better overall data transfer rate with eight cameras connected, compared to our previous PCIe-USB380 card. For ease of deployment, flexibility and accessibility, all eight USB ports on PCIe-USB381F are accessible on the faceplate, making it easy to connect to multiple USB3 ports and devices on a single system.
Delivering a steady 400 MB/s per port data throughput that is more than enough to satisfy high-resolution data acquisition for most off-the-shelf industrial USB3 cameras, PCIe-USB381F also offers standard 900mA regulated 5V output to power USB3 cameras and the user-configurable 1800mA output via onboard jumpers for devices that require higher power consumption. The performance and flexibility can benefit a variety of vision-related applications, such as machine vision, factory automation and medical imaging.
