Transmit video from Camera Link Base cameras over GigE across a wide operating temperature range

Pleora’s iPORT™ CL-GigE External Frame Grabbers allows designers to treat Camera Link® Base configuration cameras as native GigE Vision® cameras in vision systems operating in -40°C to +60°C environments.

With these external frame grabbers, Camera Link cameras can enjoy the long-distance cabling, computing platform support, and networking advantages of Gigabit Ethernet (GigE). The CL-GigE converts video data from Camera Link cameras to packets and transmits it over GigE with low, predictable latency. Cabling distances can be up to 100 meters using standard CAT5e/6 cabling, and unlimited with off-the-shelf Ethernet switches.

The connection at the computing platform is a standard GigE port, allowing designers to reduce system size, cost, and power consumption by using smaller form factor computing platforms such as laptops, embedded PCs, and single-board computers.

The iPORT CL-GigE is supported by Pleora’s feature-rich eBUS™ SDK application tool kit. With this software suite, designers can rapidly prototype and deploy production-ready software to support video transmission over GigE, 10 GigE, and USB 3.0 using the same application programming interface (API).
