Support of digital interfaces

logo-std-cl Camera Link (CL): an established industry standard with transfer rates of up to 850MB/s including power-over support. It is very robust by its simple data connection technology and serial communication between camera and frame grabbers.

logo-std-lvds LVDS stands for Low Voltage Differential Signaling and is defined in ANSI/TIA/EIA-644-1995 standard. It is characterized from extreme low power consumption and high noise immunity at a maximum cable length of 10m by copper. LVDS is suitable for high speed data transfer with bandwidth of 655 Mbit/s per channel.

logo-std-gige GigE Vision (GEV) is a communication standard based on Ethernet (IEEE 802.3) and transferred to a camera interface standard. GigE Vision supports multiple data channels and allows a fast and error free image transfer up to 125 MB/s per channel over distances of up to 100m, using standard Ethernet cables.
