CEI Components Express
CEI Components Express is known worldwide as manufacturer of cabling for image processing. The company has now extended its range of connectors and offers new versions of Mini-CameraLink connections.
Our cabling partner, Components Express (CEI) continuously expands their impressive portfolio. In addition to machine vision cabling for HS?Link, CoaXPress and USB 3.0, the American manufacturer now offers a variety of new connector types.
The maximum transmission distance of standard CameraLink is 10 meters,
however, practical experience shows that it is impossible to guarantee proper
operation of 85 MHz cameras over this distance without data loss. Although
special long-distance (LD) cables allow for longer distances, these solutions
depend greatly on the transfer rate.
The new BitMaxx products from CEI allow for greater transmission distances at higher frequencies. Thus, it is possible for a 85-MHz camera in CameraLink 'Base' mode to transfer data up to 16 meters. For 40 MHz cameras it is even possible to operate them reliably at a distance of up to 25?meters.
The BitMaxx system for CameraLink is not limited to CameraLink Base configurations: there are also solutions for medium and full configurations.
A separate power supply is connected to the image acquisition side, thus the BitMaxx system significantly extends the maximum possible cable lengths for CameraLink applications.
