Camera Link HS Interface for Scientific CMOS cameras

The co.edge CLHS from PCO combines advanced scientific CMOS technology with an ultra-fast Camera Link High Speed (CLHS) interface for high data throughput. The pco.edge 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 cameras and is compatible with the pco.edge 4.2 & 5.5 sCMOS cameras.

Camera Link HS is designed to specifically meet the needs of vision and imaging applications.  It provides low latency, low jitter, real-time signals between a camera and a frame grabber while carrying image data, control data and trigger events.

Fiber optic cables overcome the significant distance limitations of other cable types – with a high degree of flexibility and cost-effectiveness.

Key Features

  • available for pco.edge 4.2 & 5.5 cameras
  • more bandwidth - up to 1187 MB/s (CLHS X-Protocol – 10G) per lane equals roughly three times a USB 3.0 bandwidth. Several lanes and cables can be used in parallel to increase bandwidth. Multiple frame grabbers can be used to increase bandwidth.
  • 100 fps maximum frame rate
  • more robust connection - no communication error with Forward Error Correction (FEC) and Fiber Optic Link (FOL)
  • more distance - 10 km with single mode fiber and standard LC connectors
  • more flexibility - real-time trigger over cable with jitter < 12.8 ns for X-Protocol 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
