Pleora’s iPORT™ PT1000-CL interface boards converts Camera Link® cameras to native GigE Vision® cameras. These external frame grabbers make it possible for Camera Link cameras to go the distance with Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) and can be combined with GigE Vision cameras in networked systems. The PT1000-CL converts video data from Camera Link to packets and transmits it over a GigE link with low and predictable latency. GigE supports cabling distances of up to 100 meters using standard CAT5e/6 cabling and with off-the-shelf Ethernet switches, distances can be unlimited. The PT1000-CL interacts seamlessly with Pleora's other products in networked or point-to-point digital video systems and complies with GigE Vision® and GenICam™ standards. Manufacturers and integrators can shorten design time and lower system costs by reusing expensive or application-specific Camera Link cameras in GigE Vision installations, with minimal software development.
Transmits video from Camera Link Base mode cameras over GigE with low, consistent latency
Built-in PLC for advanced real-time synchronization and triggering
Asynchronous serial communications connectivity over Camera Link, as well as an external connector
Pleora’s PT1000-CL connects at the PC with a GigE plug, eliminating the need for a desktop PC with an available peripheral card slot. As a result, system designers can reduce system size, cost, and power consumption by using computing platforms with smaller form factors, such as laptops, embedded PCs, and single board computers. The PT1000-CL is bundled with Pleora’s eBUS™ SDK.
