Powerful interfaces and reliable connections for longer transmission paths from camera to computer are necessities.

The compact cameras from the Mikrotron CXP-series can be easily integrated where they are needed in a space-saving manner and ensure high-speed data transfer with maximum transfer rates through the CoaXPress high-performance interface.

In close cooperation with the Israeli company Kaya Instruments, Mikrotron is closing the gap for reduced distances in data transmission. The new repeaters and fiber-optic converters ensure maximum data transfer performance by CoaXPress of 6.25 Gbps in uplink and over 20 Mbps in downlink. The still-current standard CoaXPress has not had these components thus far.

Fiber-optic cables are not affected by electromagnetic disruptions and are thus a key factor ensuring reliability in difficult environments. As tried and tested components, they guarantee a transmission range of up to 10 km in single mode and up to 400 m in multi-mode. In the spirit of plug and play, they offer easy integration. The energy supply for the components comes directly from the CoaXPress and guarantees bi-directional communication over long distances.

For the high-performance 3CXP (3MP) and 4CXP (4MP) cameras from the EoSens CXP family, this opens new possibilities for the most demanding applications in industrial image processing, high-speed video and HS video long-time recording for all areas of industry, research, and development.
