Create GigE Vision 2.0 connectivity for Camera Link Full and Medium cameras over 10 GigE links
Pleora’s iPORT CL-Ten Dual Medium IP engines deliver video data from high-throughput Camera Link Medium cameras to PCs, using innovative, cost-saving 10 GigE technology. The iPORT CL-Ten video transmitters can send imaging data to remote PCs using only modest amounts of CPU resources while ensuring consistent latency.
The CL-Ten product family provides options for designers to meet system requirements. The iPORT CL-Ten Full supports transmission of a single Full (including Deca and 80-bit) mode camera. The iPORT CL-Ten Dual Medium supports simultaneous transmission of 2 Medium or Base mode cameras.
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 image analysis equipment can be located outside of harsh environments, in more convenient locations for maintenance, or in centralized operations centers. The CL-Ten is compatible with industry-standard copper or fiber-based links via an SFP+ (small form-factor pluggable) connector, and can be easily connected to off-the-shelf 10 GigE components such as network cards and switches.
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 CL-Ten is bundled with Pleora’s feature-rich application toolkit, eBUS SDK
Ideal iPORT CL-Ten applications
Ideal applications include ultra-high-performance semiconductor, flat-panel, web, and other quality inspection systems, as well as medical imaging and military systems. Faster inspection times, through increased frame rates and maximum resolutions, mean further cost-savings.
