Basler AG is launching seven additional interface cards with GigE Vision interface under its own brand name, which will significantly expand the existing portfolio. The interface cards with 1GigE, 1GigE PoE (Power over Ethernet), and 10GigE have one to four ports, making it possible to implement a wide variety of multi-camera systems. Additional switches can be used to add more cameras for even more applications in a network, each capable of transmitting the full data bandwidth.
The GigE interface cards are required if the PC used has only a single LAN port, which is occupied by the machine controller, for example, or does not have a PoE function for the power supply. The interface cards are divided into Standard and Premium product lines. The Standard cards are designed for robust image acquisition and are divided into 1GigE cards with 1, 2 and 4 ports and 10GigE cards with 1 port. The Premium cards for more demanding applications include 1GigE PoE cards with 1, 2 and 4 ports and integrated power supply over the same data cable via Power over Ethernet. The Premium cards simplify cabling, saving you money for this and any subsequent troubleshooting.
