NEW Grablink Express: Cutting-edge PCI Express Camera Link image acquisition board
NEW Grablink Express: Cutting-edge PCI Express Camera Link image acquisition board

The Grablink Express is at the cutting-edge of the Camera Link technology through the compliance with the new standard 1.2 including PoCL -- Power over Camera Link. It allows a single Camera Link cable to supply power to the camera, on top of transferring high-speed images and controlling the camera. The Grablink Express PoCL frame grabber interfaces the smallest and fastest cameras on the market while still being safely compatible with cables and cameras from the previous Camera Link standards.

  • Base Camera Link 1.2 configuration
  • 24 bits at 85 MHz
  • Power over Camera Link compliant
  • Full support of AREA-SCAN cameras
  • Asynchronous reset and exposure control
  • Simple and reliable LINE-SCAN acquisition, ADR Technology™
  • 32-MB on-board memory
  • Form factors: PCI Express Full-height, half-length, x1
