BitMaxx for greater CameraLink cable lengths

21 May 2010

The maximum transmission distance of standard CameraLink is 10 meters, however, practical experience shows that it is impossible to guarantee proper operation of 85 MHz cameras over this distance without data loss. Although special long-distance (LD) cables allow for longer distances, these solutions depend greatly on the transfer rate.
The new BitMaxx products from CEI allow for greater transmission distances at higher frequencies. Thus, it is possible for a 85-MHz camera in CameraLink 'Base' mode to transfer data up to 16 meters. For 40 MHz cameras it is even possible to operate them reliably at a distance of up to 25?meters.
The BitMaxx system for CameraLink is not limited to CameraLink Base configurations: there are also solutions for medium and full configurations.
A separate power supply is connected to the image acquisition side, thus the BitMaxx system significantly extends the maximum possible cable lengths for CameraLink applications.
