Precise time synchronization

The CX cameras with Precision Time Protocol (PTP) according to the IEEE 1588 standard are the ideal choice when several GigE cameras or machine components must operate in Ethernet networks with a uniform time base. They can be synchronized with a precision of 1 microsecond, thus allowing the easy allocation of images and triggers and clear identification of process data. This simplifies and lowers the cost of the system setup and integration. The PTP cameras support a master and slave mode as well as Scheduled Action Commands. This benefits in particular applications in which the images of several cameras must be captured in sync from different perspectives, for example, to generate a precisely composed image of a large object. Thanks to the synchronized frame rate, cameras can capture images simultaneously in multi-camera operation – without the need for additional cables.
