The CLV-402 Camera Link Video Splitter interfaces one Camera Link camera to two frame grabbers using standard Camera Link cables. This arrangement enables the addition of a second frame grabber for functions such as camera setup, secondary/parallel processing, monitoring, and recording. One frame grabber acts as master and provides control and communications to the camera. The second frame grabber receives camera video data only. The CLV-402 incorporates high-speed 85 MHz interfaces and supports all Camera Link configurations (base, medium, full, 80-bit). Multiple CLV-402s may be cascaded to support 4 or 8 frame grabbers. The CLV-402 is housed in sturdy, compact aluminum enclosure

Camera and/or Frame Grabber has the mini (HDR/SDR) connector?
This product incorporates the standard (MDR) 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-402 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.
Camera Link duplicator interfaces one camera to two frame grabbers
Second frame grabber can be used for camera setup, processing, monitoring, etc
Uses standard Camera Link cables (not included)
Supports all Camera Link configurations (base, medium, full, 80-bit)
High-speed 85 MHz interface chipset
Minimal video data pass-through latency: 3 camera pixel clocks
Minimal control/communication pass-through latency: under 5 nS
Also acts as a repeater, doubling max distance between camera and frame grabbers
