Grablink Value : Cost effective digital acquisition

The Grablink Value is an affordable Camera Link frame grabber for cost-effective industrial applications. The Grablink Value is recommended for single-camera systems. It acquires images at a maximum camera speed of 60 MHz over the data path towards the on board memory.

  • Base configuration
  • 24 bits at 60 MHz
  • 8-MByte on board memory
  • Form factors: desktop PCI, 32-bit 33 MHz bus
  • 6U/4HP Compact PCI 64-bit 66 MHz bus

Support of the Base configuration
Fitted with one Camera Link connector, the Grablink Value supports the Base configuration of the Camera Link standard. The Grablink Value supports various types of cameras:

Monochrome or Bayer Color RGB
single-tap dual-tap single-tap
Tap configuration Base_1T8, Base_1T10, Base_1T12, Base_1T14, Base_1T16 Base_2T8, Base_2T10, Base_2T12 Base_1T24
Camera Link configuration Base 1 tap x (8-10-12-14-16 bits) 2 taps x (8-10-12 bits) 1 tap x (24 bits)

Form factors Grablink Value
The Grablink Value is available in two form factors. The Grablink Value PCI has a 32-bit 33 MHz PCI conventional bus. The Grablink Value cPCI benefits from a 64-bit 66 MHz cPCI bus. The Compact PCI board (cPCI) serves the purpose of the industrial applications. This particular form factor brings a high resistance to shocks and vibrations thanks to the rugged packaging and the high-density pin-and-socket connection to the PC. Besides, cPCI PCs offer many more slots - in the 33 MHz configuration up to eight slots are available-.

On board memory
The Grablink Value incorporates 8-Mbyte on board memory. Used as a huge image FIFO, it is clocked at 80 MHz and provides a peak bandwidth of 320 Mbytes/s.

I/O lines I/O lines
The Grablink Value is fitted with a female DB9 connector. It implements the trigger and strobe facilities offered by the MultiCam driver. System components such as motion encoders benefit from isolated I/O lines and power supply.
