Pleora’s iPORT™ CL-Ten External Frame Grabbers use a high-performance GigE Vision® 2.0 over 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GigE) link to transmit video simultaneously from two Camera Link Base or Medium cameras, or a single Camera Link Full camera at maximum data rates, with low, predictable latency. These external frame grabbers allow designers to extend and aggregate system cabling, and integrate Camera Link cameras into a networked environment.
The CL-Ten converts video data to Ethernet packets and sends them over a 10 GigE link to receiving software or hardware. With the long reach of 10 GigE – 1000s of meters versus 10 meters for Camera Link – processing and analysis equipment can be located outside of harsh environments, in more convenient locations for maintenance, or in centralized operations centers.
The CL-Ten 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).
