Cambridge Electronic Industries has launched the world’s first CoaXPress Repeater capable of working at CXP-12.
This device supports all speeds up to CXP-12 and removes the problem with the potentially prohibitive short connection lengths of CXP-12. This small lightweight qualified device is available in either a single, dual or quad connection format and has been approved by the JIIA as compliant with the CoaXPress V2.0 standard.
The CXP Repeater is a plug and play device which provides a cost-effective copper alternative to a fibre system, whilst significantly increasing the connection length at a given bit rate between the host and device. The repeater requires no external power supply as it uses Power over CoaXPress (PoCXP) technology.
Cambridge Electronic Industries technical director, Peter Fayers, who developed the product, said: “This is an evolutionary product, which has emerged from the potential requirement for a longer connection length than would otherwise be possible at the high-speed data rates of CXP-12.
“The CXP Repeater now makes this possible whilst complying with V2.0 of the CoaXPress standard. The simplicity of this plug and play repeater with its compact design allows it to be inserted discreetly into a production environment without redesign of the plant or equipment. It can also be used multiple times in a single connection as long as the system designer observes the power budget requirements.”
The CXP Repeater is available with Micro BNC, BNC or DIN 1.0/2.3 connections. There is also a wall mounting kit for the CXP Repeater, available separately.
Cambridge Electronic Industries can also offer bespoke manufactured cables to complete the system, using their precision components, to provide the highest image quality available.
