Pleora iPORT CL-U3 External Frame Grabbers

Quick Overview

Simple to integrate USB3 Vision video interface for Camera Link Cameras.
Overview

Pleora’s iPORT™ CL-U3 External Frame Grabbers provide systems manufacturers and integrators with cost and design flexibility advantages by converting Camera Link® cameras into native USB3 Vision™ cameras. With these external frame grabbers, Camera Link cameras can transport high-speed imaging and video data over the widely available USB 3.0 bus. The cameras can also be used with a broader selection of smaller form factor, low-power computing platforms to help reduce system costs. The CL-U3 family transmits video from Base and Medium mode Camera Link cameras with low, predictable latency over a USB 3.0 link. The connection at the workstation is a standard USB 3.0 port, eliminating the need for a desktop computer with an available peripheral card slot for a traditional frame grabber. As a result, designers can reduce system size, cost, and power consumption by using computing platforms with smaller form factors, such as 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. Pleora’s CL-U3 External Frame Grabbers help systems manufacturers and integrators to leverage the performance attributes of USB 3.0, including high-bandwidth output, power over cable, and plug-and-play usability. The iPORT CL-U3 External Frame Grabber family delivers a range of solutions for designers to meet specific system requirements, including products supporting extended temperature operating range, extensive GPIO functionality, and power over Camera Link (PoCL). The CL-U3 complies fully with the USB3 Vision and GenICam™ standards, ensuring interoperability with third-party equipment in multi-vendor environments. The CL-U3 is bundled with Pleora’s feature-rich eBUS™ SDK application toolkit.
