PHANTA Image Splitter for Camera Link Full

PHANTA distributes images from 1 FULL camera to as many as 4 framegrabbers, up to 85Mhz. It supports Camera Link Full (10x8bit and 8x8bit), Medium, and Base configurations, and comes with a standard 1U 19″ chassis for easy mounting. PHANTA is easy to use, with no programming required.

Our PHANTA multiplexers are compatible with every Camera Link configuration and are capable of connecting any Camera Link configuration camera to maximum 8 framegrabbers. PHANTA is ideal when captured images need to be distributed to multiple framegrabbers synchronously. Applications include intensive parallel image processing, image monitoring, and real-time image analysis. All PHANTA models support a maximum pixel clock rate of 85 MHz, and all image data are transmitted to relevant framegrabbers synchronously and identically.

CLEVER Image Splitter, Repeater, & Mux

This multifunctional unit is the electrical solution to extend cable length, split images, and multiplex. CLEVER supports Camera Link Base and Medium configurations at high speeds up to 85MHz. The user may control the unit via either the RS232 port or DIP switch on front panel.

CLEVER is one of our most adaptable devices, with a model available for each Camera Link configuration. Our most versatile CLEVER models can perform at least three different functions, ranging from image repeater, splitter, multiplexer, or 2×2 switch. The 2×2 switch configuration echoes the functions of a multiplexer, in that it connects two Camera Link cameras to two framegrabbers. This switch capability is unique to our CLEVER product line. CLEVER connects to any camera or framegrabber via Camera Link cables, with every model encased in our signature gold, rack-mountable housing ideal for challenging or harsh applications.
