OpticLink CLGeneral

The opticlinkTM CL models offer long haul video transmission over fiber optics cable. These interfaces can be used for transmission of CameraLink video data up to 40 to 60 kilometer without optical repeaters. It is a transparent interface, so it is compatibe with almost all available CameraLink cameras and third party framegrabbers. The opticlinkTM transmits not only video data from camera to framegrabber, but also one or two bidirectional RS-232 channels and camera control signals from framegrabber to camera are transmitted.
