On display at the EDT booth at SPIE DCS 2017 from April 9-13 will be the company’s VisionLink XF and VisionLink RCX Camera Link extenders. The VisionLink XF is a Camera Link fiber optic extender for base through 80-bit mode that supports 20 – 85 MHz and transfers real-time image data to a host computer over distances of tens to thousands of meters. Additionally, the VisionLink XF achieves data rates of up to 850 MB/s. EDT extenders work in pairs. One unit connects to the cameraand the other to a frame grabber via Camera Link cables. A fiber optic cable then connects the two units for a complete extension system.
The VisionLink RCX is a remote camera extender that adapts Camera Link base over fiber that supports data rates up to 255 MB/s and pixel clock rates of 20-85 MHz. Two extenders combine to form a fiber optic extension cord between the camera and an EDT or third-party Camera Link frame grabber.
Through the Camera Link standard MDR26 (or, with an adapter, SDR26) connector on each device, one extender attaches to the camera and the other to the frame grabber. A fiber optic cable then connects the two extenders by the SFP transceiver on the back of each. For both products, triggering/serial is provided via Camera Link, or externally via an optional Lemo connector.
