Pleora’s iPORT™ PT1000-LV External Frame Grabbers allow system manufacturers and integrators to treat LVDS cameras as native GigE Vision® cameras. With these external frame grabbers, LVDS cameras enjoy the long-distance reach of Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) and can be mixed with native GigE Vision cameras in networked environments. System manufacturers and integrators can shorten time-to-market, lower design and system costs, and reduce development and deployment risk by reusing expensive or application-specific LVDS cameras in GigE Vision installations, with minimal software development. The PT1000-LV External Frame Grabbers interact seamlessly with Pleora's other products in networked or point-to-point digital video systems. The frame grabbers also comply fully with the GigE Vision® and GenICam™ standards, enabling them to interoperate with third-party equipment in multi-vendor systems.
The PT1000-LV converts video from LVDS cameras to packets and transmits it over a GigE link with low, predictable latency. GigE supports cabling distances of up to 100 meters using standard CAT5e/6 cabling. With off-the-shelf Ethernet switches, distances can be unlimited. The connection at the PC is a standard 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. A sophisticated on-board programmable logic controller (PLC) allows users to precisely measure, synchronize, trigger, and control the operation of other vision system elements. The PT1000-LV is bundled with Pleora’s feature-rich application toolkit, eBUS™ SDK, and compatible with Pleora’s vDisplay™ External Frame Grabbers, which deliver video directly to a monitor.
