The CLV-411 Camera Link Video Splitter interfaces one Camera Link camera to up-to four frame grabbers using standard Camera Link cables. This enables the use of multiple frame grabbers for applications requiring parallel or distributed processing, camera sharing, etc. One frame grabber acts as master and provides control and communications to the camera. The remaining frame grabbers receive camera video data only. The master frame grabber is selectable and may be dynamically changed for applications requiring camera control sharing. The CLV-411 incorporates high-speed 85 MHz interfaces and supports the Camera Link base configuration. Multiple CLV-411s may be cascaded for large parallel processing systems. The CLV-411 Camera Link Video Splitter is housed in a sturdy, compact aluminum enclosure. Related Products: CLV-401A Splitter CLV-402 Splitter CLV-412 Splitter

Camera and/or Frame Grabber has the mini (HDR/SDR) connector?
Camera Link cables are readily available with the standard (MDR) connector on one end and the mini (HDR/SDR) connector on the other. Note that the CLV-411 does not support PoCL.
Cable Length Note:
To ensure data integrity, we recommend limiting Camera Link cable length for cameras with high clock frequencies as follows:
Max Cable Length
For example, cables used to connect the camera to the splitter AND the splitter to the frame grabber should be no longer than 5m with an 85 MHz camera.
