2016/04/04: EDT’s fiber-optic extenders convert Camera Link over fiber, exceeding Camera Link limits for remote operation. The compact modules plug directly into Camera Link standard MDR26 connectors (or, for devices using SDR connectors, the extenders can be connected via adapter cables), allowing direct replacement of length-limited electrical cabling with long-range fiber and enabling remote location of the camera tens, hundreds, or even thousands of meters from the host computer.
The VisionLink RCX extender (shown), for base mode, supports the full Camera Link pixel clock range of 20-85 MHz via 1.25-3.2Gb/s SFP fiber-optic transceivers.
The VisionLink XF extender, for medium through extended full mode, is in development.
VisionLink-series extenders are compatible with all other EDT extension products (including the original RCX C-Link fiber extender) and all EDT frame grabbers, as well as with third-party frame grabbers.
