GrabLink Expert 2- Wide PCI high performance Camera Link acquisition.

The GrabLink Expert 2 is a Camera Link frame grabber for demanding industrial applications. Supporting the Base or Medium configuration, it can be connected to one or two cameras. The GrabLink Expert is a 64-bit, 66 MHz PCI bus frame grabber. Each camera delivers images at a maximum speed of 66 MHz over the data paths towards the on board memory.

  • Dual Base or Medium configuration
  • 48 bits at 66 MHz
  • 16-MByte on board memory 
  • PCI Bus 64 bits, 66 MHz
  • Supported Software

    Preliminary information
    Support of dual Base or Medium configuration

    The Grablink Expert 2 is a Camera Link compatible frame grabber fitted with two Camera Link connectors. It acquires images simultaneously and independently from two line-scan or area-scan digital cameras in a dual Base configuration. The Grablink Expert 2 also supports one camera in the Medium configuration. It supports various types of cameras:

      Monochrome or Bayer Color RGB
    single-tap dual-tap quad tap


    Tap configuration Base_1T8, Base_1T10, Base_1T12, Base_1T14, Base_1T16 Base_2T8, Base_2T10, Base_2T12, Medium_2T14, Medium_2T16 Medium_4T8, Medium_4T10, Medium_4T12 Base_1T24, Medium_1T30, Medium_1T36, Medium_1T42, Medium_1T48 Medium_2T24
    Camera Link configuration Base 1 tap x (8-10-12-14-16 bits) 2 taps x (8-10-12bits)   1 tap x (24 bits) /
    Medium /

    2 taps x (14-16 bits)


    4 taps x (8-10-12 bits) 1 tap x (30-36-42-48 bits) 2 taps x (24 bits)
    Form factors

    The Grablink Expert 2 is available in two form factors, PCI and cPCI. Both are designed for high-speed acquisition with a 64-bit, 66 MHz PCI 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 Expert 2 incorporates a 16-Mbyte on board memory. Clocked at 100 MHz, it provides a throughput of 800 Mbytes/s implementing a huge FIFO for each camera.

    NEW Multiple Windows Of Interest (WOI) support

    The Grablink series frame grabbers seamlessly support the acquisition of a Window Of Interest rather than a full image. Most cameras provide this feature, allowing image acquisition at an increased frame rate. Moreover, when working with some specific CMOS cameras, the Grablink Expert 2 supports the acquisition of multiple WOI (up to 16) in the image, with possible overlapping of the windows.

    I/O board

    The Grablink Expert 2 PCI is delivered with an auxiliary I/O board implementing the trigger and strobe facilities. The bracket is fitted with two connectors. On the female DB9 connector, system components (such as a motion encoder) benefit from isolated I/O lines and power supply. TTL trigger and strobe lines are available on a female DB25 together with 16 fully programmable general-purpose I/O lines. On the Grablink Expert 2 cPCI, the two I/O connectors, DB 25 and DB 9, are located directly on the front panel.
