Pleora Technologies has unveiled the first solution that brings the bandwidth and Cat 5e cabling advantages of NBASE-T technology to the vision industry.
Pleora, one the world’s leading supplier of high-performance video interfaces, says that leading X-ray flat panel detector (FPD) and camera manufacturers are already designing it’s GigE Vision over NBASE-T video interface hardware into advanced imaging devices for medical and machine vision applications.
President of Pleora Technologies Harry Page said: “Pleora has set a new performance benchmark for the imaging industry. With our NBASE-T embedded video interface hardware, manufacturers can meet challenging bandwidth and cost requirements for advanced imaging devices with an easy-to-integrate solution that significantly reduces design time, cost, and risk.”
The new solution will be showcased at VISION.
Pleora says that the NBASE-T specification is compatible with the recently adopted IEEE 802.3bz™ standard and defines a new type of Ethernet signaling that boosts the speed of Cat 5e and Cat 6 cables well beyond the previous limit of 1 Gbps.
Pleora belongs to the NBASE-T Alliance, a consortium of over 45 companies which represents all major facets of networking infrastructure and helped streamline the development of the new standard.
Chairman of the NBASE-T Alliance Peter Jones said: “Pleora’s latest video interface brings the proven connectivity and cost benefits of NBASE-T technology to the imaging market, and demonstrates the broad applicability of the technology. The recent ratification of the IEEE standard, along with an existing ecosystem of shipping products, dramatically simplifies the adoption of this technology. It enables a broad range of industries to immediately leverage the added bandwidth provided by NBASE-T, without the expense and difficulty of replacing Ethernet cabling.”
