pco.edge CLHS

New interface for highest data throughput

The pco.edge CLHS combines advanced sCMOS technology with an ultra-fast Camera Link HS interface.
CLHS, with its data transmission rates of up to 1.1 GByte/s, is the perfect complement to the high data rates of the pco.edge family.
Fiber optic cables overcome the significant distance limitations of other cable types – with a high degree of flexibility and cost-effectiveness.

For further information see product data sheet pco.edge 4.2 & pco.edge 5.5.

Key Features

Specifications of the Camera Link HS standard:

  • more bandwidth – up to 1187 MB/s
  • more robust connection – no communication error with Forward Error Correction (FEC) and Fiber Optic Link (FOL)
  • more distance – 300 m with multi mode fiber and SFP+ connectors or 10 km with single mode fiber and standard LC connectors
  • more flexibility – real-time trigger over cable with jitter < 12.8 ns and Plug and Play with GenICam and GenCP
  • more open – full CLHS specification is downloadable for free
  • more cost effective – use of standard network hardware components allows multi sourcing
