Pleora’s iPORT™ CL-U3 External Frame Grabbers provide systems manufacturers and integrators with cost and design flexibility advantages by converting Camera Link® cameras into native USB3 Vision™ cameras. With these external frame grabbers, Camera Link cameras can transport high-speed imaging and video data over the widely available USB 3.0 bus. The cameras can also be used with a broader selection of smaller form factor, low-power computing platforms to help reduce system costs.
The CL-U3 family transmits video from Base and Medium mode Camera Link cameras with low, predictable latency over a USB 3.0 link. The connection at the workstation is a standard USB 3.0 port, eliminating the need for a desktop computer with an available peripheral card slot for a traditional frame grabber. Integrated PLC and GPIO capabilities allow end-users to control, trigger and synchronize cameras and other vision system elements.
