PoCL cables mate to industry-standard shrunk delta ribbon (SDR) 26-position PoCL camera connections, enabling machine-vision cameras to be powered through the data cable rather than a separate power cable, which potentially eliminates the need for a power connector, saving board space and panel real estate, and allowing the design of smaller cameras.
