XLM Excelm Digital Firewire Camera

The Excel M series cameras are provided with the powerful Exponent software and ensure exceptional quality images for your application. A single cable connection provides simplistic operation, and every camera is supplied with an approved IEEE 1394 PCI card and cable.

The state-of-the-art design allows the Excel V cameras to be easily moved from one computer to another without the need to shut down or restart the system. The last camera settings are held in memory and become active upon system recognition. Fifteen user-defined presets and multiple features further enhance the camera’s flexibility.

The Excel M cameras are IIDC compliant as set forth by the IEEE 1394 Trade Association. Adhering to this defined set of guidelines ensures easier integration and consistency for software interface and development. A software development kit is available for custom software interface.

We invite you to experience Dage visual technologies, engineered to set a higher standard.
