BitFlow’s BitBox is a I/O device for machine vision which provides 36 inputs and 36 outputs in a compact, DIN-rail mounted form factor supporting TTL, LVDS, open collector, opto-isolated and 24V signaling. The device is controlled solely by a BitFlow frame grabber, using the same API, driver and manual.

It contains 12-pin connector blocks that are said to be added or removed easily, yet still lock securely in place for factory floor reliability. Blocks are grouped by signal type and have snap-in connectors that allow the fabrication of a harness without directly wiring the BitBox.

The I/O device contains all transmitters and receivers with a small high-speed 15-wire cable running between the BitBox and the frame grabber. Maximum length cable is 10 m, providing flexibility in positioning equipment within the machine. This arrangement isolates noisy, high-voltage signals generated by the PC away from the machine where they could cause data drops, video problems, malfunctions and random network errors.
