Power over Camera Link (PoCL) cameras

Toshiba Teli America

Positioning itself in the PoCL-equipped camera marketplace, Toshiba Teli America, Inc. has added six PoCL monochrome and color cameras to its machine vision lineup including a 2-megapixel camera capable of running 30 frames-per-second (fps).

"PoCL simplifies the connection of the camera to compatible frame grabbers by supplying power over the Camera Link cable," said Doug Freck, President/CEO of Toshiba Teli America, Inc. "Now that the AIA has approved the standard, Toshiba Teli is empowering system integrators to fully leverage the benefits of PoCL in their designs."

Much like Power-Over-Ethernet (PoE) which is widely used in the video surveillance industry, PoCL allows a single cable to carry the power supply, high-speed image transfer, and camera control to save time, money and space. It has been dubbed the CleverDragon™ line, these cameras share an impressive feature set highlighted by a square grid array CCD, random trigger shutter, programmable partial scan for faster frame rates, and ultra-compact, space-saving and lightweight form factors measuring either 29mm x 29mm x 26.5mm, or 54mm x 43mm x 59mm.
