Vivid Engineering CLT-303R


The Vivid Engineering CLT-303R and CLT-303L CameraLink Translators enable the use of traditional RS-422 and LVDS digital cameras with CameraLink frame grabbers. The “R” and “L” versions support parallel RS-422 and LVDS digital camera data, respectively. The CLT-303R and CLT-303L are extremely flexible and can convert a wide range of cameras from parallel digital output to CameraLink base configuration with up-to 24-bit data. Cameras with pixel clock rates as low as 2.5 MHz and as high as 85 MHz are supported. Features include RS-232 communication support. A front-panel link status indicator identifies an active connection. The CLT-303R/L frame grabber interface incorporates the connector, signals, pinout, and chipset in compliance with the Camera Link specification. The CLT-303R/L incorporates the “base” configuration signal set, consisting of video data, camera control, and serial communications. The CLT-303R/L is housed in sturdy, compact aluminum enclosures. A locking-plug power supply is optional.
