iPORT™ CL-Ten Dual Medium IP Engines
Pleora’s iPORT™ CL-Ten Dual Medium IP engines deliver video data from high-throughput Camera Link® Medium cameras to PCs, using innovative, cost-saving 10 GigE technology. Vision applications, receiving image data from the iPORT CL-Ten Dual Medium IP engines through the eBUS SDK, use minimal CPU resources while ensuring consistent latency — ideal for ultra-high-performance semiconductor, flat-panel, web, and other quality inspection systems, as well as medical imaging and military systems. Faster inspection times, through increased frame rates and maximum resolutions, mean further cost-savings.
iPORT CL-Ten IP engines transport the imaging data over industry-standard copper or fiber-based links using an small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) connector for easy integration into off-the-shelf 10 GigE infrastructure. This allows you to limit the use of expensive and bulky Camera Link cables, extenders, and frame grabbers — and to locate PCs safely away from inspection areas.
Compatible with the open GigE Vision® and GenICam™ standards, the IP engines leverage Ethernet’s flexible networking capabilities, such as multicasting and mesh architecture. The IP engines can be connected through one or more switches along with a range of other system elements, such as cameras, computers, processing devices, displays, and controllers — in meshed, real-time video networks. Signals from system elements, connected to the iPORT CL-Ten IP engine’s general purpose inputs and outputs (GPIO) allow you to accurately synchronize and control the operation of conveyors, encoders, cameras, sorting mechanisms, and other components — either independently from* or in conjunction with the host PC on the network.
