Camera Link is a standardized interface for industrial image acquisition and is designed for fast data transmission.
For controlling a Schäfter+Kirchhoff line scan camera, any third party grabber board is suitable when it complies with the Camera Link standard in the base configuration. The camera and grabber board are connected using a standard cable with MDR26 mini-ribbon plug connectors.
Use the software development kits provided from the grabber board manufactuers when developing customized applications. On request, Schäfter+Kirchhoff can provide the Camera Link configuration file of the specified camera type matched to the grabber. The basic camera parameters can also be configured with the SkCLconfig tool from Schäfter+Kirchhoff. This tool can be downloaded from the support area of the Schäfter+Kirchhoff homepage.
Schäfter + Kirchhoff provides a wide range of accessories for the line scan cameras with Camera Link interface, including focus adapters, extension rings, lenses and mounting brackets for industrial use.
