Interfaces

Camera Link

For fast digital cameras, the Camera Link interface has established as a universal standard with high reliability and flexibility. Camera Link is available with different speed grades: Base, Medium and Full configuration. For connecting the camera, a framegrabber plug-in card is required on the PC side (usually PCIe). For the infrared cameras, IRCAM offers a Control Kit Camera Link with the following features:

  • Camera Link framegrabber PCI-e
  • Camera definition file
  • Driver for Windows XP, 7 and 8
  • Camera Link cable, 5 m
  • Installation into customer-provided PC and test or support with installation

Gigabit Ethernet

For connecting infrared cameras, the Gigabit Ethernet interface has the advantage that for data transmission normal network cables can be used for long distance data transmission, without the need for a special framegrabber. A Data Interface Gigabit Ehernet can be integrated into IRCAM infrared cameras, in addition to the Camera Link interface.

  • Gigabit Ethernet adapter integrated in camera
  • Camera definition file
  • Driver for Windows XP, 7 and 8
  • Ethernet cable 10 m (other lengths on request)
  • Camera Link and Gigabit Ethernet synchronously usable

USB 3.0

The USB 3.0 interface, thanks to the high possible data rates and the wide use and availability, is particularly suitable for the connection of fast infrared cameras. A Data Interface USB 3.0 can be integrated into IRCAM VELOX cameras - alternatively to Gigabit Ethernet, in addition to Camera Link:

  • USB 3.0 adapter integrated in camera
  • Camera definition file
  • Driver for Windows XP, 7 and 8
  • USB 3.0 cable 3 m (other lengths on request)

Optical fibre

Data transmission via optical fibre has several advantages: high speed, long transmission distance (several kilometers) and galvanic isolation. In IRCAM infrared cameras, an optical transceiver can be integrated. On the PC side, the signals transmitted via the optical fibre are converted from and to one of the above described interfaces.
