The CLM-601 Camera Link Multiplexer interfaces up-to four base configuration Camera Link cameras to one frame grabber using standard Camera Link cables. This capability supports applications requiring the ability to select between multiple cameras.
The Camera Link switch provides multiple camera selection methods including rear-panel switch settings, Camera Link interface signals (serial or camera control), and an external RS-232 port. Medium configuration cameras are supported using two CLM-601s in parallel. Multiple CLM-601s may be cascaded to support more than four cameras.
The CLM-601 Camera Link Multiplexer is housed in a sturdy, compact aluminum enclosure. Related Products:

Camera and/or Frame Grabber has the mini (HDR/SDR) connector?
This product incorporates the standard (MDR) connector. Camera Link cables are readily available with the standard (MDR) connector on one end and the mini (HDR/SDR) connector on the other. Note that the CLM-601 does not support PoCL.
Cable Length Note:
To ensure data integrity, we recommend limiting Camera Link cable length for cameras with high clock frequencies as follows:
Max Cable Length
For example, cables used to connect the camera to the multiplexer AND the multiplexer to the frame grabber should be no longer than 5m with 85 MHz cameras.
