Pleora’s iPORT CL-GigE External Frame Grabbers allows designers to treat Camera Link Base configuration cameras as native GigE Vision® cameras in vision systems operating in -40°C to 60°C environments.

With these external frame grabbers, Camera Link cameras can enjoy the long-distance cabling, computing platform support, and networking advantages of Gigabit Ethernet (GigE).

The CL-GigE converts video data from Camera Link cameras to packets and transmits it over GigE with low, predictable latency. Cabling distances can be up to 100 meters using standard CAT5e/6 cabling, and unlimited with off-the-shelf Ethernet switches.
