Product Overview

Pleora’s iPORT™ CL-U3 External Frame Grabbers help designers leverage the performance attributes of USB 3.0 – including high-bandwidth output, power over cable, and computing platform choice – by converting Camera Link® cameras into native USB3 Vision™ cameras.

With these external frame grabbers, video from Base and Medium mode Camera Link cameras is transmitted with low, predictable latency over a USB 3.0 link directly to existing ports on a broader selection of computing platforms, including laptops, embedded computers, and single-board computers. Integrated PLC and GPIO capabilities allow end-users to control, trigger and synchronize cameras and other vision system elements.

The iPORT CL-U3 External Frame Grabber family includes a range of solutions to meet specific system requirements, including products supporting extended operating temperature range, extensive GPIO functionality, and power over Camera Link (PoCL).
