Pleora: External Frame Grabber

April 14, 2014
The iPORT CL-Ten Full external frame grabber allows designers to deploy Camera Link Full cameras in real-time, high-bandwidth GigE Vision networks.

The frame grabber transforms Camera Link Full cameras into GigE Vision-compliant cameras, enabling their integration into multipoint, real-time video networks using low-cost, long-distance Ethernet cabling. This allows Camera Link Full cameras to be used in a flexible range of GigE Vision network configurations, from traditional umbilical connections to multipoint-to-multipoint switched video networks with many cameras, many workstations, and distributed image processing. The frame grabber transmits uncompressed video at the maximum Camera Link Full rate of 6.12 Gb/s. The video is sent with low, consistent end-to-end latency directly to ports on a computer over industry-standard 10 GigE fiber cable. With the long reach of 10 GigE - 1000s of meters versus 10 meters for Camera Link - processing and image analysis equipment can be located outside of harsh environments, in more convenient locations for maintenance, or in centralized operations centers. The frame grabber also features a programmable logic controller (PLC) that allows users to precisely measure, synchronize, trigger and control Camera Link Full cameras and imaging devices in a networked environment.
